Mayor London Breed lifted COVID restrictions. So did San Mateo County. I felt safe and started not wearing a mask. I went grocery shopping maskless. I attended a performance at the San Francisco Opera House maskless. Then I came down with a low grade fever and tested positive. Luckily, it was a mild case. I took the anti-COVID medicine Paxilar which leaves a metallic taste in your mouth. I spent five days doing very little. Most of the time all I wanted to do was rest or sleep.

Some people achieve much during confinement. I achieved nothing. After five days, I tested negative. But I understand it could come back. I am hoping to finish this column before it does.
