In the Time of COVID. Day 41

Taking a Standing Eight Count
There is a term in boxing for getting one’s bell rung and then standing up in a fog, and shaking it off. The boxer takes a standing eight count, then the ref determines if he can fight on or has lost by TKO, a technical knock out. I’m giving myself a standing eight tonight. I’ve boxed 40 rounds with my memories. I won some rounds and been hammered by others. I’ll answer the bell tomorrow night. Mean time, everybody keep your dukes up this COVID is a brawler and fights dirty.

Take the standing 8, but don’t go back in the ring without rest…man, this fight is a bitch.
