“Perfer et obdura, dolor hic tibi proderit olim.

Be patient and tough; someday this pain will be useful to you.” 

― Ovid

 

7 REALLY FUN THINGS TO DO WHILE STUCK AT HOME

 

 

  • Think outside the breadbox. Don’t just bake bread or break bread – why not cake the bread?  Forget the flour and eggs.  Jack up the brown sugar, molasses, vanilla extract and cinnamon. Yum.

  • Study The Kama Sutra.  Surprise your spouse with a pop quiz.

 

  • Live-stream your cat’s DIY pedicure. Document his lack of cooperation and that unmistakable disdain in his eyes. Beware a cat scorned. Remember – there’s a big, fat “ME” in “MEOW.”

  • Host a Virtual Pity Party. Drown yourself in cheap wine and sad clown music. Indulge.

 

  • Get pregnant or get another dog. Or both. The more the merrier. Misery loves company.

 

  • Learn How To Make People Laugh!

 

“Apart from paracetamol, laughter is still the best medicine. If you’ve always dreamed of performing at your local stand-up night, now’s the ideal time to hone those gags. Chicago’s legendary Second City Training Center may be closed, but it’s offering an expanded series of classes online covering everything from performing voiceovers to writing for TV. Most affordable, though, are its $25 drop-in improv and stand-up classes. Sign up and give those one-liners a test run.”

Comedy. Laughter. Humor.

Take as often as needed.

No costly doctor’s appointment – in the flesh or virtual – required.

No adverse side effects – not even the usual ones – nausea, headache, constipation, diarrhea, kleptomania, heart attack, tennis elbow, diarrhea, flat foot, droopy eye, dandruff, diarrhea and death.

And – best of all – you can’t overdose on laughter.
