anne mikolay 2018These are stressful days! We all need a laugh; for your amusement, then, I present some internet memes lightheartedly referencing our current state of affairs. I take credit for absolutely none of these; I found them all on the internet. Enjoy!

Quarantine has turned us all into dogs. We roam the house all day looking for food. We are told “no” if we get too close to strangers. And we get really excited about car rides.

Due to the massive increase in deliveries, Fedex and UPS have joined forces and are now Fed-Up.

Whoever decided a liquor store is more essential than a hair salon is obviously a bald headed alcoholic.


We treat each of our patients as part of the family at Atlantic Highlands Animal Hospital. We offer top-quality surgical and dental treatments for cats and dogs. For the best pet care in the Atlantic Highlands, NJ, call us at (732) 291-4400.

Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine I’d go up to a bank teller with a mask on asking for money.

Not even sure what day it is anymore. Feels like it must be at least April 94th.

Washed a load of pajamas so I would have clean work clothes this week.

Gas is almost under $1.00. Restaurants are all drive-in style, and everyone has shaggy hair. Welcome to the 1970s!

Six feet apart today is better than six feet under tomorrow.

I just Clorox-wiped a bottle of Purell and purelled my hands cuz I touched the Clorox canister. How far down a rabbit hole does this go?

Everyone please be careful tonight, there is a DUI checkpoint on the corner of Hallway and Kitchen! Be safe!

We’re living in two Stephen King novels right now: The Dead Zone and The Stand. If clowns show up, I’m done! I’m just done!

QuaranTUNE playlist: Don’t Stand so Close to Me” by the Police; Can’t Touch This by MC Hammer.

If a diarrhea virus hit us right now, do you think people would buy up all the nasal spray?

Coffee filters can be used as toilet paper, but it does change the taste of the coffee.

Homeschool Day One: Wondering how to get this kid transferred out of my class.

To make your staycation as mind-expanding, relaxing, and enjoyable as possible, we recommend spending at least one day in each room.

Me: “Alexa, what’s the weather this weekend?” Alexa: “Doesn’t matter! You ain’t going anywhere.”

My Mom always told me I wouldn’t accomplish anything lying in bed all day, but look at me now! I’m saving the world!

Being quarantined with a talkative child is like having an insane parrot superglued to your shoulder.

The world is now Vegas. Everybody is losing money. It’s acceptable to drink at all hours, and no-one has any idea what day it is.

And the last one presented here is for your serious consideration, for we all know this Covid-19 pandemic is really no laughing matter.

Fear is contagious, but so are faith, hope, and love.
