Lockdown Laziness

“Guys join, it’s zany!”

I pushed the notification tray back up and returned to my book; Attending a Zoom “concert” with over a 100 screaming people and one guy spinning random tracks? Not for me.

The phone rang, “please come quickly, there’s a monster at my door,” my friend almost shrieked. I put on my suit of armour β€” raincoat, mask and gloves and ran to her place.

Outside, there was nothing but a parcel at the gate and I picked it up, looking around. I rang the doorbell, “you can relax, there’s no one there; Whoever it was, was either your imagination or has left.”

“I know, would you have come if I said that I was too lazy to pick-up a parcel outside?”

  1. Well, we will see how long this friendship lasts. Maybe their friendship is full of practical jokes.
    Clever SSS!


  2. Loved that the idea of a screaming Zoom concert was a no-no, but getting into suit of armour to investigate monster was okay πŸ™‚ Be funny if the parcel had turned out to be a boxed-instant-monster-just-open!! Yikes!
