Staying home? Beware of this:
Here’s a social distancing tip you may not have considered until you’ve spent at least 24 hours in lock-down in your own home.
Maintain a distance of 6 meters between you and:
- The fridge
- The kitchen cupboards
- The pantry
- The normal emergency food stash
- The apocalypse emergency stash
- The car emergency stash
- The kids school lunch snack stash
- The kids own secret candy stash
- The birdseed/pet kibble/dog treats stash…
Anyway. Yesterday I went to the garage fridge to get a carton of milk he bought as backup last week. You know, when I had my meltdown about all this panic buying and hording…
Note: I usually keep certain food items in that fridge even during non-pandemic times so I don’t have to shop as often. But in my view he went a little overboard in the canned and frozen food department, which is why I’ve been avoiding going into the garage lest I get pelted by random towers of non-perishables. But I digress…
When I opened the backup fridge I found the most amazing surprise. This:
Here I thought we were out of chocolate!
Never mind that this is boozy chocolate. Society has broken down, there are no rules! I can eat booze chocolates any time I want! It’s not like I’m driving anywhere these days…
I think this is left over from Christmas… 😀
So that’s what’s happening in my little corner of Toronto during quarantine day 7. I’m not yet losing it, technically, although I find myself socially isolating from family members at regular intervals during the day… Some parts of the days are more trying than others.
We’re fine. I’m fine. We’re fine… 😷
Stay home. Wash your hands. This virus has the ability to stay alive on inanimate objects for a while…
Italy is in dire state. I have family there. Please stay home.
Stay healthy. Stay safe.
And stay away from the constant noshing!
