Self-isolation side effects

I live in my own little world

I am going crazy from this self-isolation.

I just had a talk with the microwave and toaster oven, and we agreed that things are getting bad, verging on dystopian bad, which could be why the television keeps recommending dystopian movies for me to watch.

I didn’t say anything to the washing machine because of her knack of putting a spin on everything.

The refrigerator seemed a little cold and distant. Not unlike him. That’s just the way he is.

Hoover said, “Suck it up, baby, suck it up!”

The toilet was looking a little flushed and didn’t want to talk about anything.

The doorknobs were at their annual convention and unanimously passed a resolution telling me to “Get a grip!”

The iron calmed me down some, saying that everything will be fine since no situation is too pressing.

The fan joined in with an optimistic view that everything would soon blow over.

I went to the living room to admire the beautiful sunrise when the front door decided to interject, saying that I was unhinged.

The curtains chimed in, telling me to pull myself together.

I went out to my gardens to talk with my plants. Almost every one simply told me not to be a prick.

Ah well, at least I have my mid-morning margaritas. I sure hope they don’t start talking to me.

      I think so because about an hour before dawn she runs down the hallway as fast as she can go, bouncing off doors, windows, and walls, doing everything she can to be as noisy as she can to make sure that I get absolutely no sleep at that hour of the day. Punishment for me always talking to her and petting her when she’s trying to sleep.

      We’re doing as well as can be expected in these dystopian times we seem to be living in. There just two of us and Little Queen Olivia, so we don’t need thousands of rolls of toilet paper……lol
