If you think it was rough locked down with your partner, imagine how you would feel locked down with your dentist? Or with the finance manager at a car dealership? How about with your ancient friendly bartender at your local dive bar or with your hairdresser at the salon? Worse yet, what if you were shut in at your lawyer’s office—with your parents and kid? During this future wave of the virus, the Powers That Be have ordered an immediate lock down of certain people IN PLACE, for six weeks!
This collection of five comedies describes the humorous ways in which five small groups of average people dealt creatively with an absurd situation. Great inventions, loves, friendships, and triumphs came out of facing the impossible—getting along with strangers for 42 days, locked down in a strange place. Grab your quarantini and prepare to recognize your hairdresser, accountant, lawyer, or husband in these characters. (In fact if you recognize a character, it may be that you and the author have the same dentist, lawyer, preacher, hairdresser, or alcoholic uncle. Or it could be that human nature is such that the best—and worst—of all of us is exposed in a crisis. Viral Companionship takes you on a journey into a New Viral World in which creativity is channeled into personal freedom and growth, with help from those earnest, annoying, funny, all-too-human strangers.
