You're wondering that's not actually heather because heather dot allowed to leave her house not because she has the virus but because we live in Washington state and there's a statewide locked down where you're not allowed to leave your house so I'm here with Megan who's here because she also lives here. Yeah I was forced into this. Oh she's not breaking any rules so we're just having a little wool special podcast this week without half of the other team because she is not supposed to leave her house so We're GONNA do a short little episode. We're not going to do journalism today. Because I want to wait until there is able to be here again. we are going to just do a A ran an icebreaker question. Okay and that's what we're gonNA talk about today. And the icebreaker question for everyone is and I really want to hear people's answers. What do you do when you're quarantined at home because of Cova Nineteen? What do you do in your house for weeks on End? You know when you have no access to other people or things or businesses or anything so. Megan has a list that she got at school right. Yes that they handed out when you left school that when when they handed that out we did not have the mandatory quarantine like we do now So part of this quarantine is that all non-essential businesses must close restaurants can only do takeouts basically of grocery stores takeout restaurants in pharmacies and banks is it. There's there's not really anything else in healthcare facilities. But you don't WanNa go there. If must you have to so? We're going to go over some of the things that you can do when you're home either by yourself or with your family So today This is Tuesday in case anyone didn't know it's national cocktail day So I'm not drinking wine. I actually made myself cocktail here. I did talk to heather. We did a video chat right before this. And she also made a cocktail at home So that we can both have won. She says to say hi to everybody and she really wished she could be here. But we were all bolted drinking cocktails on this fabulous national cocktail day. Megan does not have a cocktail custody. Sixteen so getting some like orange juice and cranberry juice and just like pretend you can just you can have is called a mock tail so like a cocktail but without the Yummy Quila in vodka in it. So it's a mock tail yum. Yeah so do you. WanNa start on your list. You have there for shirt things to do when you're sheltering in place what's number one. It's not number one but it caught my eye. Okay almost immediately okay. Learn how to belly dance. Learn how to belly dance. That's on the list the school gave to you. Do you want to read it? Learn how to belly dance or just okay. So where do you learn how to be? I'm guessing YouTube. Probably has belly dancing videos for we. You know I have a friend who Aerial Silk Dance. Ooh It's it's evil stepsisters. Audrey Oh Nice Nice Nice Nice okay okay. That would be fun if you ever want lessons online video chatting lessons. Well it'd be hard to silk dance in your house with the Kazakh hooked to the ceiling. Is that correct? Just GonNa Hook and you know you don't you can't go to the store and buy silks though. So just use their four. You'd have to use an old bed sheet or something. Just hang on there and you know might not work as great. But where do you? Where do you buy silks just like they say for you? Know what you could probably buy from Amazon. But they're coming from China on just GonNa tell you right now. So very tiny silks all right. What's the second thing Learn how to play. Learn how to play a new instrument. Okay what if you don't have an instrument now? What if you're quarantined in your house and you can't go outside to buy a new insert? Yeah so you're stuck with spoons. You can learn how to play. The spoons online keyboards. Okay Okay Yeah Yeah What else you can make America out of some beans and construction paper. Yeah Okay Yeah. Yeah Visit every park in the valley. You could probably still do that because you are allowed to go for a walk The governor said but you have to stay six feet away from everyone else so you could go to the parks but you have to make sure you don't interact with anyone at the park so usually because like invite a friend of the park. Stay six feet away. Text each other. Yeah Yeah you'd still be in the same general area but just you can't get close to each other so yeah yeah Paint your bedroom again. You need paint. I don't know if the hardware stores are open if they're considered any central service. Maybe what if you wait if your pipe rakes in your house or something? Yeah and you just go there.

Dad got a shaved ice so that was fun. I did lay outside and read my book because it was Super Nice Day and then we sat outside listen to music really loudly really loud too and then I noticed the next day the neighbors were playing their music really loud almost like a competition. Maybe because you were pointing songs from the musical at full volume just one. Just I don't see what the problem is. It was so loud and it's like the longest song I doubt they've ever listened to it. I've just like you know broadening. Their neighbors only speak Spanish. They probably didn't know I know what they're thinking. What the Hell is? Yeah and so the next day. They're like we're playing our music. I before those crazy people come out here.
