But what a difference a pandemic makes. All of a sudden, I love Governor Cuomo, his soothing Queens accent, his stories about his dad Mario (himself a three-time governor of New York) and his 88-year-old mother Matilda. And then there’s Andrew the National Champions 2020 Wisconsin Badgers Shirt also I will do this dad, embarrassing his kids with stories of their upbringing after his divorce, when he was a single father, and bringing his 22-year-old daughter Michaela to one of his coronavirus press briefings, suggesting it was “cooler” to be with him there than to be on the spring break vacation she had just wisely cancelled. She deadpanned, “So cool.” You know, it’s kind of comforting to watch a normal father-daughter relationship and not the weird, slightly North Korea-seeming stuff between Ivanka Trump and her dad.

And then there’s Andrew bantering with his brother Chris on CNN about which son wasn’t calling their mother enough right now or which one was held in higher standing back home. “I just called Mom, right before coming on this show,” Andrew informed Chris, “and by the National Champions 2020 Wisconsin Badgers Shirt also I will do this way, she told me I was her favorite. The good news is, she said you were her second-favorite, her second-favorite son.” (Chris’s response: “She never said that.”) Andrew’s stories about dealing with his elderly mother Matilda and sibling rivalry between two men decades removed from their childhood are both relatable and delightfully normal, and in a time like this normal is good, normal is comforting. Those of us who are trapped in our apartments for the foreseeable future need normal.
