Starting tomorrow, for the daily clapping for essential workers, I will go out on my patio in fabulous vintage loungewear and coordinating footwear, climb up onto a chair I will bring from outside (the patio set isn't completely stable), and commence clapping and waving. I am the only one with a patio, and any neighbors who see me from their windows in the courtyard will be looking down at me "onstage" as if they were in the mezzanine and balcony seats in a theater. Curtain is at 7 p.m. sharp. The performance will run for 2 minutes with no intermission.
