I work on Sundays, every week day, and sometimes on Saturday nights. Two days off in a row are very rare for me.

Speaking of which, Passover is next month. The rare two days off in a row!

Zei gezunt Annie, I got no snark for Passover, EXCEPT RARE 2 days in a row off? Do you work by yourself without anyone to cover for you? No vacations? Your boss a slave driver? What?

Getting meals from Hello Fresh, they’re pretty darn good!

I never tried Hello Fresh, but DoorDash is better IMO.

Spring Break is around the corner, and you know what that means?

Good lord, you had to post something that sad? I’m almost crying already and I don’t even know the poor guy!

I guess that weight loss surprised you because you spend so much time just sitting around.

Are you trying to be original or to show your knowledge of Latin?

Keep your woke multicultural garbage to yourself. If there ain't a Charlie Brown special for it, it ain't a real holiday

100% chance of rain tomorrow.

Flora Purim has her own holiday? Outside of Brazil? That’s all fine and good but I would be out in the streets to celebrate Airto Day.

I’m gonna see a doctor about my hip.

(woops I'm gonna keep it.) And 100% chance of doldrums, huh Chock.

I'm still gonna see a doctor about my hip.

Supporting a library in the Internet Age, seems a lost cause- besides Annie what you buy those books for, a nickel apiece AND they gave you a free tote bag? They’re just HEMORHAGGING MONEY from mis-management, Annie, they just don’t want you or the rest of us to know.

Tomorrow this, tomorrow that ... it's always "tomorrow" with you. Stop procrastinating and do something TODAY for once.

I'm moving in with my boyfriend at the beginning of April.

Living in sin makes Jesus cry.

Welp, my trip to Paris officially died last night.

So, you're going to attend one funeral, and create the opportunity for three or four more. Thanks, Typhoid chela.

Did an 11-mile long run this morning, and the sprained knee held up. The boy is back!

Riigghtt, so you're going to run 11 miles on a sprained knee, make it worse, and require medical treatment which would have been completely unnecessary if you'd shown a bit more common sense, while COVID 19 victims desperate for care wait in line so that your knee can be looked at. Selfish!

My plan had been to have a maximum of two cats, yet somehow I find I have four felines.

Do you have any idea how many birds and small rodents domestic cats kill every year? Thanks for replacing the mockingbirds, jays, and mourning doves with mrowwls and the scent of cat piss!

My cats are strictly indoor beasties.

Ever see “Grey Gardens”? Two old ladies in their mansion eating creamed corn while dozens of feral cats roam about, piles of tuna cans and cat piss and feces all over. Is that like your house, cause guess what, no one is coming to your house.

Wash your hands, everybody!

walk it off or drink a glass of water or do like the hobbits when hungry tighten your belt and keep marching.

Is that what your family is telling you as you slowly drive them insane?

We should all just try to get together, that would be nice.

Wait how would that even work? 350 million people all standing 6 feet apart? Where would that be, the Mall of America, which isn’t even available for rent? Never mind getting everyone there when planes aren’t even flying. I mean the whole thing’s a logistical nightmare. Nice thought though.

Patx2 probably meant we should all try to get along.

My daughter is upstairs and just called my husband who is sitting here on the couch, guess shes following the distance rules.

Gee no that’s NOT what I meant, say whatever you like, my skin’s not that thin, geez.
Anyway you GUESS she’s following social distancing rules? I’d say that’s a good guess.

Just had a group video chat with my daughters, my son and my niece (and 4 dogs).

SO IT'S YOU! You're the one who is slowing down the internet, by video chatting just to make faces at each other and listen to dogs bark,while I'm working over here!

It's essential, I need another head of cabbage and a nice plump eggplant.

SO, staying shut inside has driven you insane, as you now talk and converse with vegetables as if they were people, instead of cooking them! Get outside, get some air, take a walk, before you go completely mad!

Workin’ on a 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle.
