So here we are, in a time of pandemic, trying to make sense of it all. Princess Bride is my favourite movie so I thought I could share all the pandemic moments it reminds me of. I hope this brings a smile to your face.
When you’re trying to buy toilet paper, hand sanitizer and Lysol wipes.
When monotony sets in and the answer to this question becomes YES. Yes this happens every day. And it will happen tomorrow. Welcome to pandemic life.
When you are too depressed to even get off the sofa and just click YES I AM STILL WATCHING on Netflix for the 8000th time.
But then you decide maybe you should exercise after all.
When you find yourself in the worst Princess Buttercup mood ever.
Relationships in close quarters become difficult.
When conspiracy theorists pop up in your newsfeed.
When you use the last of the toilet paper.
When you’re sitting there wondering when life is going to get back to normal again.
When only half your grocery order arrives because hoarders bought up the grocery store.
Waking up remembering how you used to go to work and coffee shops and touch your face.
Trying to buy black market toilet paper out of the trunk of a car somewhere.
He installs a bidet and you could just kiss him.
When someone wants to break social distancing…
And tries to get within six feet of you.
When you’re trying to work from home, homeschool your kid, cook and clean and be Pandemic Pollyanna to help your family and friends get through this emotionally.
Serving snacks like it’s your job.
When even the slightest additional thing goes wrong.
Dreaming of a cure.
Waiting for the end of the pandemic.
When your kids say they are bored of pandemic life.
Reevaluating your life because what else is there to do?
When people say it will be over “soon.”
When you’re flipping through the channels and there’s nothing on.
When you just want it to be over already.
Recapping press conferences for friends who missed the livestream.
Leaving the house at full speed to get your hair done, drink in a bar, eat at a restaurant, get a massage and your hair and nails done when this is all over fina-fricking-lly.
