I've had these brewing for a while, and I finally sat down and thrashed out these neologisms:

VENDREFT: This is the feeling of loss, not quite sorrow, that you feel when you walk down the street and see that a business has closed, even if you've never patronized that business.

DEBILGELATION: This is the feeling of relief and vindication you get when you walk down the street, see a closed business, and realize that the business is a McDonalds.

NOSLOSTIA: The sudden realization that you have returned to the town you grew up in and it has changed so much you have no idea where you are.

I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it.

NostalgYeah: The feeling you get when you return to the town you grew up outside of, and find that you are very glad that you left long ago.

A stranger is just a friend that you haven't met yet.

The feeling of trying to explain to your kids having pointed out that where a Walmart now sits, the lingerie department is where your home had once been after the trailer park had been bought out. True story.

What is - was. What was - is.

A little levity in the face of the lockdown:

Q-Coon: to settle in for a long 'shelter in place' with all the necessities for a one-person slumber party

Wuhan Roulette: to ignore the lockdown and go to parties and such, because you're still in college and implicitly invulernable
