If someone told us twelve weeks ago that a harmful virus infecting the globe was going to force us to quit the gym, we’d be gob smacked.
If they then told us we’d also have to go on scavenger expeditions to multiple supermarkets just to complete the weekly shop, we’d think they were having a laugh. But if they went on to tell us about “social distancing” and as a result we would all be working from home while entertaining our kids, we just wouldn’t find that funny at all. In fact, they’d have taken the joke too far at that point!
