Roll with it

"Life does not cease to be funny when people die any more than it ceases to be serious when people laugh." - George Bernard Shaw

Wargamers will have different ways of occupying themselves at the moment. One of my contacts has ordered in so much booze that one can only assume that he has decided to get and then remain so drunk that he won't notice when he is ill. Peter, on the other hand, has complained that when working from home his employer most unreasonably seems to expect him to actually work rather than paint figures. I myself fully intend at some point to paint something, but haven't quite got round to it yet. Indeed I have come up with a cunning plan to do something hobby related that will fill up my time without being in any way productive; details to follow. 

Peter also commented on the craze in the UK  for panic buying pasta and toilet rolls. As he observantly pointed out, if you only eat the former you are not going to need too much of the latter. If the shelves are empty when you get there then I urge you to recall this poem from your childhood:

In days of old
When knights were bold
And paper wasn't invented
They wiped their arse
On clumps of grass
And rode away contented.

  1. I like that poem. It might be worth writing on a paper towel and tacking to the toilet door to keep as a last resort?
