A college professor once pleaded with John Pistacchi to become a writer. John, sensing more money in software, started a successful Silicon Valley computer firm instead. However, his professor's words never faded, and John dabbled in publishing throughout his career. He has published articles in Reader's Digest and in-flight magazines for American Airlines. His retirement has enabled him to return to his old passion. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 lockdown, John has been posting weekly observations of the humorous side of the lockdown as a way of keeping in touch with his Parkinson's boxing group till the gym reopens. This book-an accumulation of those weekly musings-is his latest attempt at extending his literary career while maintaining his sanity in these insane times through a self-depreciating sense of humor.
