The Treasure Room

On Friday, March 13th, we were all sent home from work. The chaotic, yet quiet grocery store I stopped by on my way home had already been sacked of its paper products, and it became clear to me that people's compulsion to hoard, blinded their own logic in choosing what to hoard. When I arrived home to find my wife had made the same strange choice, and filled our built-in towel closet with toilet paper rather than non-perishable food, the iconic image from Disneyland's Pirates of the Caribbean popped into my head. All the wonderful riches collected by the greedy pirate go to waste as his corpse rots away on top of the mound. As Disneyland now remains closed to the public indefinitely, this memorable image of "The Treasure Room" and its powerful morality tale has never more relevant.
