El Pasoans Share Last Awesome Thing They Did Before COVID-19
March 2020 started like every month before it. Although we knew by then this coronavirus thing was out there and could become problematic, we were still living our lives like we always had; maskless and in close proximity.
And then things started getting canceled and postponed, and next thing you know we were in lockdown. But for the first couple of weeks of March we were still doing fun, “normal” stuff.
We asked El Pasoans what was the last awesome thing you did before COVID-19? Many said they were standing shoulder to shoulder with thousands of other people at the KISS and/or Cher concert, or watching monster trucks crush cars and rip s**t up at the Sun Bowl.
Here’s what others had to say about their last awesome outing before the pandemic took hold:
Jeanette Cubillos Dominguez: Celebrated my dad's and sister-in-law's birthdays at a restaurant with a large group
Carla Christine Gutierrez: My sister had her wedding. We were surrounded by all our family and friends. That was the last time we saw them face to face.
Liliana Martinez: We spent a 3 day weekend in Ruidoso with family for a birthday it was the last time we all got together
Elsa Montoya-Mariscal: Shared a Texas size Margarita with my bestie at Carlos and Mickeys!
Paulina Garrissiere: Doesn't sound very exciting, but, the last fun thing I did, was eat at a restaurant with my son. I definitely can't wait to be able to go places with him again!
Gloria Cruz: We went to the movies and we bought our huge refillable bucket of popcorn, you know so we can use it all year
Aria Garcia-Solis: That weekend we had my gender reveal party we had all our family and friends over...who knew our life was going change so drastically. Fast forward to now we have our son and most of the people who came to our gender reveal are yet to meet our son
James Perkins: Was in a relationship and got to do the dirty, which was the last awesome thing I did. Than the pandemic hit and no more of either. thanks Covid.
