There was a time, not too long ago, when I was so legendarily disruptive that clients called me the “Disruptive Desperado” or “Doctor Disruptor.” Some even said, “heyooo, there he is, DD. My man.” Although there was this recovering alcoholic on the team who found that name much too provocative to stomach. But with everything that’s happened in the last year, I’ve lost a little juice off my fastball. How can a person be expected to disrupt things when Mother Nature just put us all to shame?

I’m just trying to remember the last disruptive idea from Taxi I’ve seen. Maybe it’s because I’m in the States? I know they’re bigger in Canada. Either way, disruption comes from doing the opposite of the status quo. Maybe you’re still thinking in pre-pandemic terms which is no longer the status quo. Try thinking of what the status quo will be six months from now. Another suggestion would be to try to expose yourself to new things, even virtually. Things you would never do otherwise. Creative inspiration comes from life experience. So, if you aren’t having any new ones, I could see how it’d be hard to get inspired.

You're not looking hard enough. You gotta really look. Squinting helps. Straining hurts. Got glasses? Rub those beauties until they're perfectly defogged. Me? I grab ahold of an electron microscope that's in between my dusty ill-fitting ski boots and a couple flat cases of Seltzer in order to spy disruptive behavior happening between quarks. You know quarks? You do now.

Parents of newborns, how are you approaching having visitors during Covid? I’m pregnant and trying to figure out what are reasonable expectations of my family and friends around visitation/holding the baby (anything from washing hands when they come over to quarantining before visiting and holding the baby). I want to make sure we’re protecting ourselves/the baby and our older family members who are at a higher risk. Our families live nearby so I anticipate they may want to visit frequently
