Isolating Long Before It Was Cool Bitter Friday Giftures

 

As you may not be aware of, there is this outbreak of disease going on, which means that we have to stay home as much as we can for a while. I’m not sure how all these extroverts are going to handle this, but us introverts are doing just fine. If it wasn’t for the other tinier humans in our house driving us crazy and making us do their homework, this would be an ideal situation. I’ve done isolation really well for most of my life and have been called shy, introvert, weirdo, or go-outside-and-mingle-with-someone my whole life. Now all of you naysayers telling me that I was supposed to get out and meet people were wrong. So I don’t want to tell you, “I told you so”, but I absolutely told you so. And I will continue to rub that in your face. Oh wait, I’m not supposed to touch my face or anyone else’s. So I will facetime or Skype it in your faces then. Regardless, the Bitter Friday Giftures will continue in earnest…

Looks like Tom Hanks had it right in the movie…

…not so much in real life.

I am writing songs like this…

Turns out Dwight Shrute was right…

We may not have enough toilet paper for a fort…

I saw a couple people outside…

I went outside…

…and did some fun activities with all my friends.

I made sure to…

…100 feet from everyone like I always do.

Made sure to remain…

…as productive as usual.

Made sure to be a good listener…

…as usual.

I made sure to stay…

not my job GIF

…nice and motivated.

Made sure to let everyone know…

…how hard I would be working.

Made sure I got permission…

…before I did anything.Ā 

Made sure to help everyone…

…with whatever they needed.

I know it seems like I’m a bit of an overachiever, but this is where I thrive. I think Dwight was right when he said that we needed more plagues, so we could get more productive like I clearly am. Make sure you wash your hands because you have to get all that productivity off your hands and make sure you stay at least 100 feet away from everyone, including your family because they might ask you do something for them. Why didn’t we all just listen to me in the beginning?

ARRRRRGGGGHHHHHHHH

  1. As an introvert who loved my work at home days before, I’m loving life right now. I have no idea what day it is or when the last time I brushed my hair was, but this staying home thing works well for me. I just wish it was under better circumstances.

  3. Thanks, Ben. I didn’t want to be the first to say I’ve always been an introvert and I’m kind of enjoying the tables being turned, having permission to tell the extroverts in my life that they should stay in and distance themselves from others. LOL. #covidfreeintrovert šŸ™‚
