I myself am fine to the point where I’m actually, I’m actually slightly concerned I might be doing too OK in all of this. I don’t know if I feel ready for lockdown to be lifted for me exclusively, very happy for everyone else to be set free, but I am an antisocial introvert and I don’t like loud noises or funny smells or people or crowds or strangers. And I love being inside my house. I hate wearing shoes. How are we going to wear heels ever again? Can you imagine what that’s going to look like? All of us in our jeans and our heels covered in makeup, just miserable because we’ve finally found freedom as adults. I don’t know. I don’t know what it’s gonna be like. I think I think I’ve lost any socializing training I have built up over the last 30 years. Oh, God.
