Jackie's 4get Me Nots

No vase can overflow if you never fill it up.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Inside the Bubble.”A contagious disease requires you to be put into quarantine for a whole month (don’t worry, you get well by the time you’re free to go!). How would you spend your time in isolation?

I could jest about reading Outlander a massive set of books but honestly if I was quarantined from a type of disease so that the risk of infecting others is contained, what else might I be allowed to do? Watch movies over and over again?

I don’t recall such procedures ever happening in my lifetime. It was only mandatory to get immunized every freakin year, and more times than I could shake a stick at, when our family traveled overseas, there and back, twice. Since I know nothing about what protocal for quarantine is, other than staying locked up for a certain period of time, and is that an individual thing? Are you locked up in the comforts of your own home? or is it that groups of people are taken to some facility?

In any case,  I would take up knitting like Old Nan from Game of Thrones and knit me a wooly blanket. I’d have the time to learn how to bind and cast off. I also would knit a pair of comfortable slippers just like these.

Sometimes I feel cut off from the world as it is but I manage. Getting past the boredom is a bit of a challenge but if your willing to keep yourself from atrophy then you will find something to do. My main concern is would I be given 3 square meals a day? Because if not I think I would go a little nutz. Take away the pleasures and the pain is much worse. In the words of Carly Simon “.I haven’t got time for the pain”
