Some Waggish Thoughts on the Pandemic

I know it’s not that easy to joke or laugh about the Wuhan Coronavirus that China unleashed on the world, but sometimes I think a little levity helps us deal with the challenges all of us are facing. The other day a friend sent me the following list of thoughts, so I thought I would pass them on. I hope they lighten the load a bit.

  • Now would probably be a good time to re-pave the roads.
  • COVID-19 has grocery shelves looking like the Cincinnati Bengals trophy cases.
  • Just read that tonight’s Powerball is up to 275 rolls of Angel Soft toilet paper!
  • Many parents are about to discover the teacher was not the problem.
  • 3 hours into homeschooling and 1 is suspended for skipping class and the other one has already been expelled.
  • Homeschool day 1: wondering how I can get this kid transferred out of my class.
  • This is the day dogs have been waiting for. They realize their owners can’t leave the house and they get them 24/7. Dogs are rejoicing everywhere. Cats are contemplating suicide.
  • I wonder if God got so mad about all of our fighting down here that He sent us to our rooms?
  • Don’t know why my fishing buddy is worried about the coronavirus, he never catches anything!
  • The truth is, it’s not so boring at home. But it’s interesting that one bag of rice has 7,456 grains and another has 7,489.
  • We are about 1 week away from knowing everyone’s true hair color!!!
  • I’ve eaten 22 times and taken 13 naps and it’s still today!
