Did you know approximately 50%-74% of the population is extroverted? That means approximately 50%-74% of the population is screaming in terror, banging walls with their heads, and begging God to allow the pandemic to blow through. And I’m willing to bet most extroverts have even began singing Rapunzel’s song from “Tangled”.
“Make the clock reverse, bring back what once was mine…heal what has been hurt, change the Fates’ design…save what has been lost, bring back what once was mine, what once was mine…”
Everyone’s worshiping magic flowers, now. (Although HONESTLY, conspiracy time! Rapunzel was quarantined against her will to a tower, for 18 years, whereas all along she was the princess of a kingdom named Corona! “Coincidence? I think not!” -Bernie Kropp from “The Incredibles”)
So, Mark, what then are you saying? What does this have to do with quarantine and insanity?
It means I’ve been losing my mind.
But unlike most extroverts, I’m lucky. There’s this strange invisible guy who visits me daily, and absolutely refuses to interact with my family, and he’s fun to talk to. Reminds me a lot of that one squirrel I saw climb up the tree that one day. Ah, good times…
But in all seriousness, I am an extrovert, and the quarantine isn’t impacting me that badly. I’m exhausted ’cause I’ve probably interacted with my friends more than normal, my daily routine is still intact…the only way I’m actually impacted is that I’m not getting any work, at all. In fact, I haven’t heard from my boss or my coworkers. In fact, I’m not 100% I’m still an employee to that restaurant. Something to investigate, I suppose.
And I suppose there are minor ways, too, like how it is now socially unacceptable to sneeze in public, even if you properly cover it. Also, when I go for a walk, everyone basically crosses the road. They’re just like, “I would rather face oncoming traffic on the road than share the only sidewalk with another living being, thank you very much.”
And then, there’s cars.
Like, SERIOUSLY people, cars CANNOT catch the corona virus! You don’t have to do a six-yard distancing rule for vehicles! Just keep your windows up and you’re fine!
My biggest annoyance is the closing of the community pool, however. Them closing that pool is nothing new, it’s never actually passed health regulations, but hey, considering sand is literally fish poop, I still think the beach is far more disgusting than the community pool. But anyways, I get how they want to prevent the spread of the corona virus, so yeah, close things like pools…except don’t they load these pools with enough chemicals to essentially destroy any virus? Like, isn’t that the POINT of putting chemicals in our pools?? (Unless it’s not and the government is poisoning us!)
Ya know, I was wrong earlier, the biggest change in me is that I’m now a heavy conspiracy theorist. Not because I believe any of that stuff, but this seems fun and I need a life. Any life. Please. Donations accepted.
So thank you for reading! 😀 What’s your quarantine experience? Are you slowly dying on the inside like me? Comment below!
