Back to Normal?

“JAY: You know, Olaf Blentner once said to me, over tea, that when reality is unpleasant, realists tend to be unpopular.”

This quote from David Foster Wallace’s The Broom of the System kept popping into my head the other day. I’ve always been a realist (which is not so popular) but in these times I find I’m very unpopular.

As in, don’t look to me for affirmation that life will be “back to normal” by this summer or any time soon for that matter.
