Sunday Stealing: the Coronavirus Questions

Hi! I'm your host Bev Sykes of the blog "Funny the World". . Welcome to Sunday Stealing. This feature originated and published on WTIT: The Blog. Here we will steal all types of questions from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent questions. Cheers to all of us thieves!


The Questions.....


In the past year have you–

1. Gone without a bra (Plastic Mancunian & Bud may skip this one!) Are you speaking of those instruments of torture that we had to acclimate ourselves to as teens?  Heck yes!

2. Skipped making your bed. About half the time, yes. 

3. Ordered groceries to be delivered Lots!  We get a farm box now and LOVE IT!

4. Cooked a real meal We almost always did before covid19, so that hasn't changed.

5. Spent the day in pajamas?  I don't have pajamas, but my nightgowns look like long dresses or maybe T-shirts, so yes, sometimes I've worn them most of the day.

6. Skipped shaving your legs? If Bud and Plastic Mancunian have then I will admit that I have, too.

7. Spent hours on Instagram or Pinterest PInterest, yes, Instagram no.. I don't really trust Instagram that much. lol

8. Eaten in a restaurant Nope, we don't eat out that much anyway so we haven't started to do this during a pandemic, space outside or not.  What I have missed is our nearly weekly trip down to the Bay to buy fish and chips at the Fish Market.  I love that stuff....

9. Skipped washing your hair. No.  What little hair that I still have gets pampered.  Washed once or twice a week.

10. Not folded the laundry No, we always fold it.

11. Worked a puzzle  Gazzillions of them have been worked, but they are the on line ones.  I'm enjoying a lot of card games on line and the last couple weeks have been playing Mahjong. 

12. Had Zoom calls  Sadly, no, though I'd love to be in on the ones that the twins have.  Their phones seem to handle it better.

13. Written letters.  No.  My pen pals and I communicate by emails now.  I like to write letters though.

14. Binge watched a TV show I did that BEFORE the shlush hit the fan...

15.Gone barefoot Practically all the time, and the one memorable time I slipped and fell in the ceramic tiled kitchen, doing some serious damage to my Guitar playing, rock throwing arm. 



I know how this gal feels .... 


  1. Just to put your mind at rest - I have never shaved my legs.




  2. Pinterest can suck you in for hours! Happy Sunday!

    1. Hi Jodi. Pinterest sure can do that. But what a wealth of crafting tips and recipes with a world wide reach, especially with knitters ; it is so worth it. 🀩 Hope you have a great week.

  3. Instruments of torture is correct. Loved your answers. Have a nice day.


    1. Indeed, they are. Somewhat better than a corset, but only just. Thank you for your support. (Pun intended) πŸ˜‰☺️

  4. Laughed at #1. I stopped wearing a bra before I had COVID to use as a reason.

    1. Like you, I've only put one on when I had to go somewhere, and this for at least the last 15 years. lol

  5. Nightgowns just don't work around here. I don't feel like I can go out to the trashcans or take Maddie out in the yard in them....

    1. I see.. and don't blame you. These are from Land's End and look like long T type dresses, made of double-knit material.
      They're not a house coat, which I used to wear in other eras, but like long dresses.

  6. Yeah, you nailed it with “instruments of torture”

    1. Oh I HATE bras and gave up wearing one when at home a long time ago. I will now wear a sport's Bra, or something similar if I HAVE to go out, but no more so called "18 hour comfort bras" that were torture!

  7. I stopped wearing a bra long ago, too. Hard on my acid reflux.

    1. I hear that. And, same here. Now my torso has been nearly 6 inches shorter since my back collapsed downward in the early 2000's. There is no bra that is comfortable. My ribs basically rest on my hip bones. There's no space between the two.
