Now is one of the most challenging times for most emergency workers, especially doctors. While us regular people are simply asked to stay at home as much as possible during the COVID-19 pandemic, doctors are at the front line battling the virus head on.
And while a number of large-scale initiatives helping doctors with anything from hospital supplies to psychological help have popped up in response to this, some people are deciding to show their support in other, more personal ways.
Enter Reddit user Possible-Bullfrog, who recently posted a near minute-long video of how he showed support for a person who’s not only a doctor, but also his wife.
Being a doctor is stressful as it is, but it is even more stressful now that the pandemic is at large
Reddit user Possible-Bullfrog recently came out with a short video—just under a minute in length—of how he surprised his wife, who works as a physician at a local university hospital. Now, being a doctor is stressful as it is, but the COVID-19 pandemic is making it a significantly greater challenge.
So, to ease his wife’s stress levels, he decided to do several little things around the house to take her mind off of the reality at work. This surprise came in the form of a cozy sheet fort hooked on a number of things around the house: the television, the coat hanger, the ladder, and the sofa. Oh, and you’d better believe that it had a mattress, some pillows, and Christmas lights to keep things comfy and jolly.
So, this guy decided to build a cozy romantic fort for his doctor wife in hopes of reducing her stress levels
On top of it all, he also got her favorite takeout from ClusterTruck, a delivery-only restaurant with a menu inspired by street food. This was supplemented by wine and, probably the cutest part of the surprise, snuggles from two doggos and the husband.
It’s no regular fort as it came with a mattress, snuggle puppies, and her favorite takeout and wine
Once the setup was complete, he waited for his wife to return home from work. As soon as she opened the door, her eyes locked onto the table with the takeout, the wine, and the adorable messages inviting her into the gigantic sheet fort to cash in her snuggle coupon.
The couple spent a relaxing and romantic evening dining in the fort and watching the Office.
Needless to say, the wife was happy about it—and who wouldn’t be? It’s an amazing fort!
The internet loved the video as it has amassed over 112,000 upvotes across several subreddits with thousands of comments and a number of various Reddit awards. Some Reddit users even asked to join them because, face it, who wouldn’t want a cool fort like that?
