“Stay in isolation. Home quarantine yourself. Maintain six feet distance. Wash your hands with soap…sanitize…wear mask nee double mask yourself…and lastly, and most importantly, double vaccinate yourself.

Phew! That’s quite an order! I am sorry. I am sorry I have failed. I have failed in performing my duties as a law abiding citizen. Well not all!

I did obey the first one, though.

I did nee do stay in isolation.

Well, I can’t help but stay in isolation. You see, I am poor, and the jungle is my home. So,  no one knows about isolation better than me. What say…?”
