Making The Best Of A Lockdown Situation

The Nightcap

The Prom

Watching the news, you would think society is in a state of despair and all hope is lost in this world. With the economy crashing, an impending pandemic, and everyone stuck at home, it’s pretty easy to fall into a funk – especially if the lockdown has forced you to miss important events like a wedding or prom.

While missing out on the prom doesn’t seem like that big of a deal to older people, it’s a very big deal for seniors who won’t be able to celebrate their final school days dancing, getting drunk, or even walking across the stage to get their diploma.

Enter heartthrob and comedian, John Krasinski – that quirky yet adorable guy from The Office. Knowing how important prom is for teenagers, he threw his very own virtual prom and the results were amazing.



Drinking on The Clock

Let’s be real. If you are in lockdown and you haven’t gained five pounds and a drinking problem, are you even really quarantining?

Memes are popping up all over Facebook, Instagram, and Reddit, making fun of our growing propensity to just drink since it feels like we’ve run out of all other options for entertaining ourselves. (Let’s be honest – there are only so many episodes of Tiger King you can watch before reaching for the bottle).

As funny as these jokes and memes are, there isn’t anything funny about developing a drinking problem. So, if you are concerned that you might be imbibing a little TOO much, here is a checklist of telltale signs.


Staycation

No matter how much you love your spouse or significant other, we all need some alone time. If the COVID-19 has taught us anything, it’s that we take for granted the ability to have alone time from our loved ones. Even if that “alone time” is doing something shitty like going to the dentist, or work, or the DMV – we take for granted those slots in our day where we aren’t being nagged or bothered by our S.O.

Well, one husband devised a masterful way of getting his much-needed space while not having to leave the home AND convincing his wife he is amidst an important project.

I don’t know who you are, sir, but I think I can speak for all of us in saying you are our hero. Learn more here
