I'm not kidding. There was a scream gathering in Boston recently, and it had nothing to do with the movie.
Omicron is doing a number on parents with young kids. One online article for Romper put it perfectly:
Omicron Means Parents Are Doing It All Again, Except This Time Dead Inside
It's too damn much. Especially if you have kids who are too young to be vaccinated. Oh, but work wants you there, but your daycare just called for the 4th time this month because of another Covid positive case.
It's enough to make you want to scream. In Boston recently 20 moms got together on a high school football field and let it all hang out. They screamed, they cried, they swore and it felt great. Moms need something to let it out because they are burnt crispier than toast.
Yes, stick a fork in them - they are done!
There just seems to be no relief if you are a mom with little ones. There's no rest, because when it's quiet - you are frantically resetting the stage to do it all over again. Moms (and dads too, but we're talking about moms) are looking for some sort of a break. And if they can't get that, then a good scream might just help.
According to the Boston Globe, these 20 moms got together to
...fight back. Against a world that keeps bars open but closes schools; against people who refuse to understand the stress of trying to keep an unvaccinated toddler safe; against bosses who don’t get it.
So who's in? Who wants to see if there's a football field with their name on it. Should we start a Facebook group? Word of mouth? Or just open a window and scream it to your neighbor?
