23 to Nothing
In baseball, if you get beat 23 to nothing, you will call it a bad day. If you get shutout, white-washed, shellacked or skunked, you feel like it’s worse than a close game.
Last week we had a record 23 plant orders to fill the unending demand for houseplants at upscale garden centers. This week --- none.
The dangerous Coronavirus has stopped sales/trade/commerce/business. Retail stores have been ordered closed. No buyers, no sellers and no supply line --- all halted to a dead stop. Now you know why every player in the economy depends on every other player.
This must be done to try to slow the exposure to the sometimes-deadly Coronavirus.
We will get through this, hopefully with minimal health damage.
But you don’t easily get over a sport’s beating nor a suffocating worldwide health crisis.
