I’ve been avoiding the statistics and news about the COVID-19. It’s too depressing. I doodled instead and came up with these two sketches. Although they are still related to the virus, I thought – what the heck let’s joke about it.

Sto evitando di ascoltare le notizie sul COVID-19. È troppo deprimente. Quindi ho fatto due scarabocchi. Anche se si riferiscono al virus ho comunque pensato – perché non scherzare un pò.

Here are my silly thoughts on some of the advantages for wearing a face mask.

Eccovi alcuni sciocchi pensieri dei vantaggi di portare la maschera (mascherina?)

  • YOU don’t have to wash your teeth, or worry about having spinach stuck in between your front tooth while talking with your boss.
  • Non c’è più bisogno di lavarsi i denti o di preoccuparsi di avere qualcosa tra i denti mentre parli con il tuo capo.
  • YOU don’t have to worry about forgetting to pluck out a few whiskers you missed because you weren’t wearing your glasses. No one will see them if you always wear your face mask, right?
  • NON devi più preoccuparti di aver dimenticato di strappare qualche baffetto che non avevi visto perché non portavi i tuoi occhiali. Nessuno se ne accorgerà visto che porti la maschera, giusto?
  • No problem with bad breath, you’re the only one that will faint.
  • Nessun problema di alito cattivo, sarai l’unico a svenire.
  • YOU can stick your tongue out and make faces, and no one will notice.  
  • Potrai fare le linguacce e nessuno se ne accorgerà.

So, try to look on the bright side of things during these hard times.

Quindi, cercate di vedere i lati positivi in questi momenti difficili e fatevi coraggio. Preoccuparsi troppo non serve a nulla.

You are my sunshine,my only sunshine.

You make me happy when times are gray.

You’ll never know dear how much I love you.

But please don’t take my face mask away.

That’s it for today, take care and try to have fun.

È tutto per oggi, statemi bene e divertitevi con la famiglia. Nota: L’Italiano non è la mia lingua madre, scusate Bacciami– baciami

As a child, I spent my summer holidays by the swamp catching tadpoles and other creepy critters or running after wild animals. I wanted to become a veterinarian when I grew up. But destiny turned my life around - I moved to Italy, where I obtained my BS in Environmental Sciences and Territorial Management. When not working in our family-run business, I write, read, play with clay, doodle, and go on scavenger hunts in the woods, followed by my six cats.
