Has This Year Changed You At All?

Recommended Posts

It’s been a bloody weird six months or so. I guess that we are all doing lots of things differently to before the arrival of the virus. I’m walking a lot more and taking much more time over things. I like that  about myself and I wish that I’d learned to do it earlier in life.

 

A simple question then. Has Covid changed you for the better? Have you developed any good habits? If so, will you be able to sustain the new you as things drift slowly back to normal?

I’ve got wider. And poorer. And I drink more.

I’ve done all of those too😀

 

I was hoping for some inspirational tales.

I don’t get hangovers as much?

No beer, got thinner, and got a bit richer, now I   cant wait to down some stone's and get fatter and get poorer,  back to square one.  :huh:

I realised that you have to live for today, and stop thinking about the past or the future.

Drinking less, getting fatter (less beer to wash the chocolate down). 

Entered myself in the sheepdog trials due to the length of my hair.

Getting addicted to daytime radio (thankfully I've not got addicted to TV soaps - yet).

Having long philosophical debates with the weeds in my garden (by thought transference).

Have trained the local German Sheppard dog to talk English (albeit with a pretty ruff Yorkshire accent).

Learnt to speak Martian (see below).

Rigged up my radio so I can talk to the Martians (they are glad that football is back as well) to further my language skills.

 

So far, so good, but hope Covid goes away soon or this confinement may turn me mad!

* how to have peaceful Sundays now not cooking dinner for visiting family

*it doesn’t matter if you have grey hair long enough for a teenage ponytail when you’re shielding and nobody sees you 

*how long you can make veg last and how much milk and bread you can cram in a freezer

*spend days in idolness yet have the  house and garden spic and span

*be grateful you live on your own when you hear the neighbours constantly bickering and rowing

I've perfected a Harvey Wall Banger.

No, not for the better.

More irritable. More acerbic. More argumentative. So I'm told.

I don't seem to be able to finish anything I start, usually being interrupted.

The dog, the postman, the courier trying to get me to take a neighbour's parcel. The phone.

The days drag, but fly by.

"Would you like a coffee?"

"Yes, please".

"Or tea? You can have tea if you want."

"Coffee's fine."

"Sure?"

"Yes, for Christ's sake! Coffee!"

"OK, OK! No need to get funny about it!"

"Right! Sorry! Tea! I'll have tea!"

"Or you can have a coffee if you really want..."

See what I mean?

Irritable!

I'm with you on the coffee if I'm honest.

 

EDIT - doesn't make the better person. But if I keep getting asked the same question, my patience is going to wear thin quicker than normal. 

EDIT EDIT - the Harvey Wall Bangers help this.
