How to play Lockdown Life Bingo

Lowckdown. It's real. It's here. And it kinda sucks.

Last week we got to Corona Part 8 and this week I decided to change it up because now we are at level 4. I’ve hit a “Lock Downer” and couldn’t bring myself to do a part 9. Now that I’ve called the wambulance, let’s get into this week’s Bytesized.

I think a lot of us are feeling this right about now. 

But if you’re feeling down, it helps to keep a calendar. My calendar:

I created a version of Lockdown Life Bingo that gets real really fast

Remember this is the new normal and we are living in unprecedented times so stay safe and remember I am here for you. #NailedIt

Thank you for not smoking

A few days ago Uncle Cyril said cigarettes would be for sale during level 4 and then last night NDZ said no. As soon as I heard this I packed up laughing at my boyfriend. He is a smoker and I am not. He genuinely was not impressed with me. I then went onto Twitter and saw that a lot of people weren’t impressed.

Smokers know that smoking is bad for them and we all know the risks, but now is definitely not the time to force smokers to quit cold turkey. Have some compassion for those non-smokers living with smokers. The compassion is for me. I’m the non-smoker.

Face masks are part of the new normal

Every time you say the “new normal” a puppy dies. I don’t make the rules up. Also I kind of hate myself for using that phrase.

When lived in Taiwan, masks were the norm but it is weird seeing this in SA. While masks do help stop the spread of diseases, they are also useful. When I went to Checkers the other day, I had a breakout and didn’t even have to wear cover up because I was wearing a mask. Glass half full type thing.

Jason wears a mask. Be more like Jason.

And just when you thought things couldn’t weirder, The Pentagon releases footage of UFOs
