Being quarantined at home isn’t everything it’s cracked up to be.

I should know, having just come off a 14-day home isolation stint.

It’s unhealthy, for one; two, it’s akin to walking the gangplank.

Third, after so many days, you’ve literally become a zombie, not responsible for your actions. Still, you’re held accountable to an iron-fisted judge – your wife.

It’s no wonder you become robotic, operable by command only, silenced at night, washed and fed regularly.
