Brian freaking May of Queen just posted a video to Guitar World teaching how to play the Bohemian Rhapsody solo while in social isolation due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Not a joke. Brian freaking May. Of Queen.

I truly appreciate that.

So what if this is destined to take out a huge chunk of civilization as some are predicting? Are you right with the Lord? Are you right with your obligations? How would your family be set if God forbid this virus takes you? Will they find weird stuff on your computer or in your browser history that would break their hearts?
Point taken, taking a magnet to my shit now...

My family would be fine. Everything else is insignificant to me.

Well, so far they'd be down about 30% on their inheritance, but if I survive I'd likely spend about 90%, so they're still ahead.

Nothing weird downloaded, perhaps some light lesbo porno in the browser history - so probably no big surprises for them.

I just received a notification that, unlike Russia, due to the Coronavirus pandemic my town will NOT be releasing lions to enforce the stay at home order.

I appreciate that.

I like it that all the people calling me to renew my truck warranty are still employed.
I appreciate that.

I appreciate my late 30’s neighbor offering to pick up things we might need. Even though we’re better prepared for the long haul.

I just got a notice from my credit card company that due to the Coronavirus pandemic they are experiencing higher than normal call volumes so wait times are longer than usual, and they thank me for my patience.

I appreciate that.

Working from home, I have discovered that I can get a good 4 days out of a single pair of sweats and a t-shirt. As a result, laundry is primarily socks and underwear...easy peasy
I appreciate that.

I just received a notification informing me that despite the Coronavirus pandemic, every kiss still begins with Kay. It's just that the kiss might not be actualized until the social distancing order is rescinded and folks no longer have to remain 6 feet apart.

I appreciate that.

Due to lack of our management ever having a team meeting so that we can be informed of recent events and happenings at work with the ability to ask questions and give advice to others, I've been informed that my chances of catching the Coronavirus at work was basically zero, however we are now working from home.

I appreciate that.

Just on another note as long as we are all in this together, I pulled that big drum across the field in the early '70's every time we made a touchdown. Good times.

Wish we still had the drum. And just to clarify - "we are all in this together.... separately"

I appreciate the sign language signers during the OK state updates for Coronavirus. They really get into their job and make these updates quite amusing.
