Saltines and Quarantines
A joke for you: "What did the mayonnaise say to the refrigerator?".........
"Shut the door, I'm dressing!"
Bwah, ha ha. I was very sick the last 24 hours and that joke is one of the few lucid memories I have from reading a magazine during my quarantine to the couch.
Ever notice how some things sound great in theory, but once you experience them, you realize it wasn't all it's cracked up to be?
Take, for example, a sudden, contagious-though-not-life-threatening illness. Ok, so being sick isn't super-fun, but don't you ever think "Wouldn't it be nice if I was then forced to stay home and relax? No work, no cleaning, no errands, no cooking..." Well, in theory that sounds like it might have some perks, but in reality it STINKS. Being FORCED to stay home somehow takes the fun out of being there. And somehow Sprite and crackers don't add anything to the thrill.
Any other examples of things that you may build up in your head as greatness, only to find you were WAY off the mark?
