"The only thing that's open…is nothing." Yep, that pretty much sums it up.

Sure, we can still go the grocery store or big box stores, but the small pleasures in life like bellying up to the bar with a good friend are going to have to wait until the coronavirus pandemic is over.

One of the top trending videos on Twitter here lately features a 4-year-old girl who has had enough of this lockdown business.

Everything she loves has been taken away from her by the coronavirus. She goes on an epic two minute plus, tear-filled rant about how everything fun has been shut down. She can’t go to her favorite restaurant, McDonald’s, the ice cream truck is shut down, she has to watch church on TV and on and on.

Certainly we can all feel her pain. Even super-introverted homebodies like myself have had just about enough of this “shelter-in-place” business. I would love nothing more than to take in a baseball game at the Rangers’ brand-new stadium or watch the latest summer blockbuster in the theater, but I’ve pretty much given up on attending any sort of large gathering for the foreseeable future.

Hell, I’d be happy with just being able to get together and barbecue with a group of friends without having to worry about whether or not someone in attendance is unknowingly spreading that damn virus.

Let’s just hope this thing is over sooner rather than later.
