Have you ever wondered what common household items, which apparently do not have a voice of their own, would talk? Would they discuss and share their feelings amongst themselves? They may be just as elated, frustrated, irritated, or perplexed by this global lockdown/quarantine imposed by most countries, as any ordinary human being.
In this 'Lockdown conversations' series, I have attempted to portray the ordeals of common household items in these uncertain and unprecedented times of global quarantine amid COVID-19 scare.
Flip-Flops (Slippers) And Formal Shoes
A dejected pair of formal shoes could not hide its frustration.
Ordinary Plant And Cactus
Plants, just like any living creatures, have different requirements. A cactus is no ordinary plant, and it most definitely does not require watering on a daily basis!
Table Calendar And Digital Clock
When you are unable to do one job you are created for.
Days Of A Calendar Week
The fine lines between the different days of a week are barely visible now. The usual emotions related to various days are no longer valid.
Earrings, Rubber Bands, And Keys
The door and car keys are indeed sad. They haven't seen any actions in weeks.
Refrigerator And Its Content
With many people unnecessarily hoarding food items after the announcement of the lockdown, poor refrigerators are having a tough time - fully stuffed with items, from top to bottom.
Teacups And Cookie Jar
Mr. Smug and Ms. Mug are looking forward to a 's-tea-my' relationship.
It's perhaps not wise to mess with alarm clocks.
Gas-Burner (Master Of Roasting)
Any person with zero cooking skills is likely to get roasted by this gas-burner.
Wine Glass And Lipstick
Wine glasses and lipstick are missing each other badly.
Kitchen Utensils And Dishwashing Liquid
Utensils threaten to sue dishwashing liquid in court over false claims.
Wi-Fi Router And Wi-Fi Dongle
We should be grateful for these devices. Because of them, work from home and most forms of online entertainment is possible.
Bookshelf And Dusty Books
I wonder how many of us have started reading again. If you haven't yet, please do it for the book's sake.
Jeans, Hanky And Boxers
The boxer is the undisputed World Heavyweight Champion for now.
Ceiling Fan (Tired One)
Salute to this warhorse called 'ceiling fan' for giving a nonstop service.
That Pissed-Off Ceiling Fan, Again
He's back! With a bang!
Doorbell And Letter Box
Poor letter box—not being used at all and tormented by a spider.
Fridge Magnets And Souvenirs
Fridge magnets are definitely not the impatient or the complaining type. But who knows what is going inside those calm exteriors?
Dark Closet And Its Inhabitants (Clothes)
Give more attention to your formal clothes. Their morale is pretty down!
