  3. Found this on Facebook…Covid19 Virus List
    1. So let me get this straight, there’s no cure for a virus that can be killed by hand sanitizer and soap?
    2. Is it too early to put up the Christmas tree yet? I have run out of things to do.
    3. When this virus thing is over with, I still want some of you to stay away from me.
    4. If these last months have taught us anything, it’s that stupidity travels faster than any virus on the planet.
    5. Just wait a second – so you’re telling me that my chance of surviving all this is directly linked to the common sense of others? You’re kidding, right!
    6. People are scared of getting fined or arrested for congregating in crowds, as if catching a potentially deadly virus and suffering a horrible death wasn’t enough of a deterrent!
    7. If you believe all this will end and we will get back to normal just because we reopen everything, raise your hand. Now slap yourself with it.
    8. Another Saturday night in the house and I just realized the trash goes out more than I do.
    9. Whoever decided a liquor store is more essential than a hair salon is likely a balding alcoholic.
    10. Remember when you were little and all your underwear had the days of the week on them. Those would be really helpful right now.
    11. The spread of Covid-19 is based on two factors: 1. How dense the population is and 2. How dense the population is.
    12. Remember all those times when you wished the weekend would last forever? Well, wish granted. Happy now?
    13. It may take a village to raise a child, but I swear it’s going to take a whole vineyard to home school one.
    14. I did a large load of pajamas just so I would have enough clean clothes for work this week.
