I was honored to receive emails from many of you wondering why I had not been posting my usual weekly blog. In honesty, I only wanted to send something out that might be helpful or pertinent to our current situation. Then I read an article by friend Patty Benoit, in her recent “Backroads” column, reminding us “..when the times are tough, the tough find humor.”
I wish I knew where these hilarious bits came from. A friend sent them to me and I wanted to share:
- Half of us are going to come out of this quarantine as amazing cooks. The other half will come out with a drinking problem.
- I used to spin that toilet paper like I was on “Wheel of Fortune.” Now I turn it like I’m cracking a safe.
- I need to practice social distancing from the refrigerator.
- Still haven’t decided where to go for Easter —– the Living Room or the Bedroom
- PSA: Every few days try your jeans on just to make sure they fit. Pajamas will have you believe all is well in the kingdom.
- Home-schooling is going well. Two students suspended for fighting and one teacher fired for drinking on the job.
- I don’t think anyone expected that when we changed the clocks we’d go from Standard Time to the Twilight Zone
- This morning I saw a neighbor talking to her cat. It was obvious she thought her cat understood her. I came into my house, told my dog….. we laughed a lot.
- So, after this quarantine…..will the producers of My 600 Pound Life just find me or do I find them?
- Quarantine Day 5: Went to this restaurant called THE KITCHEN. You have to gather all the ingredients and make your own meal. I have no clue how this place is still in business.
- (My favorite) My body has absorbed so much soap and disinfectant lately that when I pee it cleans the toilet.
- Day 5 of Homeschooling: One of these little monsters called in a bomb threat.
- I’m so excited — it’s time to take out the garbage. What should I wear?
- I hope the weather is good tomorrow for my trip to ‘’Puerto Backyarda’’. I’m getting tired of ‘’Los Livingroom’’.
- Classified Ad: “Single man with toilet paper seeks woman with hand sanitizer for good clean fun.”
- Day 6 of Homeschooling: My child just said “I hope I don’t have the same teacher next year”…. I’m offended.
- Better 6 feet apart than 6 feet under….
If anyone knows the origin of these gems, please let me know.
And some of the most brilliant words I heard came from Hoda Kotb at the “Today” show, when she said:
“After all this is over, there is really only one thing we will remember … how we treated one another.”
