As restrictions on being in the presence of another human being are tentatively relaxed, the prospect of venturing past the front door for more than a brisk walk or dash for toilet paper may have us hiding under the doona, loudly singing ‘The rainbow connection’ (Willie Nelson version, thanks).
Feeling like a startled hermit crab reluctant to emerge from your shell? We’ve got you covered.
Harness up the children.
Ease yourself into contact with real humans. Dolls won’t judge your isolation mullet or care if you forget to brush your teeth.
Put your newly honed crochet skills to work for extra bodies in your post-iso nudist farm utopia.
Keep overly excited acquaintances at bay with your finger gloves.
Share your new-found baking talents.
Don’t forget pants when you do venture out.
Embrace (the pleasures of) the glove for the train ride to town.
Or forget the morning commute and take a palanquin instead.
And if all feels too much, go full lockdown and get thee to a nunnery.
