Coronaviral Adventures #8

Circuit breaker in Singapore demands that we have to wear masks the moment we step out the door. Not that we have many places to go since only the essential services such as supermarkets and bakeries are open.

This leads to interesting conversations, when I go grocery shopping and come home with bags of groceries and my mother goes “How goes the robbery?” And I replied, “Not bad. It’s quite a steal on Ben and Jerry’s, two tubs for the price of one.”

Or when my father wears a mask and goes for a walk in our neighbourhood park early in the morning (that is still allowed) and I would ask him, “Where are you sneaking off to without Ma knowing?” and he replied, “Doing all the illegal things while we are still allowed to wear masks and the police cameras can’t see our faces.”

No one can fault my family for humour…
