A young office worker, following the shelter-in-place order, chatted with remote friends.
OW: I’ve binge-watched the entire Cheers and Friends series. What next?
FRIEND1: Don’t know. Boredom is killing me!
FRIEND2: Practicing my drums. Neighbor threatened to shoot me.
OW: I guess there’s always Game of Thrones.
FRIEND2: Dudes, DO NOT mix ice cream and beer!
OW: Critical moment, guys. I’m running out of toilet paper.
FRIEND1: Anybody know how to get a billiard ball out of your mouth?
Meanwhile, in the apartment below, a writer messaged a friend.
WRITER: This is so AWESOME. I finally have time to write!

Stay safe out there, folks. Wash your hands.
Oh, and seriously, don’t mix ice cream and beer, unless you like puking everywhere.
And by the way, you cannot get a billiard ball out of your mouth. It had to be surgically removed. Something about the curvature of your teeth. The moral is, never put one in your mouth in the first place!
