I’M NOT READY TO GO OUT. DO I HAVE TO?
Don’t get me unsuitable, I like to be alone. For me, isolation is sort of a journey to Bali, with much less suntan lotion. I like me—we get alongside like gangbusters…alone. Add in different individuals and there is perhaps issues. However 13 months later…I’m sick of me and all my annoying little quirks, just like the irksome incontrovertible fact that I seek advice from myself as “Girl Deb, queen of all issues televised.” But…I’m dedicated to this sofa, and Netflix and I are in a fairly severe relationship, in reality…he’s my boyfriend. Plus…I’m frightened, apathetic, but irritated by the scantest considered getting studying. I don’t even know the place my brush is.
HERE’S A LIST OF THE MUST-DOS BEFORE LEAVING MY CORONA COCOON:

My callouses have joined collectively to supply a sheathe of cowhide that might stroll throughout a mattress of damaged glass with Covid 19, unscathed. These ol’ ft can’t be unveiled in public, no sir, not till they’re sanded down.
2. Cease consuming hand sanitizer. No less than cease consuming it in public. Or on the very least—get a flask.
3. Be taught to make use of utensils, once more. Start slowly with the re-introduction of the fork. Then add in knives, spoons, and oh so slowly…napkins. Sleeves are solely for blowing my nostril from right here on out (apart from emergencies).

5. Lose forty kilos. Folks will now be capable to see greater than the one eye I supply up throughout zoom conferences and selfies, or the cracked sliver I open my door if somebody knocks on it to ensure I’m nonetheless respiratory (they haven’t thus far).
6. Take my Goodwill bin haul to Goodwill. Regardless that I’m mad at them. I don’t bear in mind why? I simply have a foul feeling towards them. And the remainder of the world, too for that matter.
6A. Get to a shrink to work out my resentments of second-hand shops, and the remainder of the world.
7. Cancel my pajama of the month membership membership. After they ask you “motive for canceling?” Simply say, “If I let you know, I should kill you.”
8. Cease my research on esoteric issues, just like the evolution of the comb since Biblical occasions, and the early civilizations of Poland, regardless of how far again I am going, they’re nonetheless Poles. The one distinction is the kielbasa has gotten higher.
9. Cease chopping my very own hair. Put away the pinking shears and step away from the mirror.
10. Stop and desist the contacting of previous boyfriends. I’ve been through the checklist twice now, and no person desires to apologize to me or ship me cash, so, for what?
11. Cease choosing political fights with individuals on Fb, since the opportunity of bumping into a few of them (within the flesh) is turning into actual, man.
12. Pare down my month-to-month TV bills: Cancel my Hulu, my Amazon, and my Disney. Or possibly the Peacock Channel? Apple TV and Hulu? Perhaps hold the Netflix, cancel the HBO GO? I definitely do NOT want ABC AFTER SCHOOL SPECIAL CHANNEL or LIVE COLONOSCOPY CHANNEL. Thank God “Dr. Pimple Popper “is on Community. Wait…do I nonetheless get community?
13. Get able to prepare to truly depart the home and go someplace. I’m exhausted on the mere considered it. What…then I might need to exit once more? How will I ever? What if I prefer it? Then it turns into a factor? I want a nap.
