Frankly Freddie – Good things about Social Distancing

Dear Freddie Fans,
My human is a pro at self-quarantine.  She’s been using paper towels to open doors, pushing elevator buttons with her knuckles and washing her hands obsessively for years.  I encourage her to do all this because when she gets sick all her fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue symptoms flare up for weeks and she won’t go on walks.
I cheer her up by reminding her all the benefits of isolating herself:
  • I stay home with her so she’s never lonely.
  • She can wear the same clothes every day.
  • She can take a shower once a week or not at all.
  • She saves money on laundry detergent, soap, shampoo
  • Her excuse for doing the cleaning, cooking TOMORROW is plausible.
  • Naps are a good thing.
  • She saves money on gasoline and car washes.
  • Alarm clocks never need to be used
  • She has an excuse for whatever she needs an excuse for . . . 
I’ve been posting a daily series on coping with self-isolation, social distancing on all my blogs.  In case you’ve missed any of my sage observation and advice click on these links.

  1. Yes there are silver linings for those of us lucky and fortunate enough to be able to social distance and have access to running water!! And another silver lining to all of this Corona stuff, is that the environment is healing itself. Wildlife and nature have a window of opportunity to recover while we all stop flying, driving and polluting and abusing. AND I read that animal shelters have NEVER had so many people come in and take dogs and cats for fostering during this time. Hopefully many of them will keep the animals and give them a forever home.

    Thanks for all the helpful information.
