If there’s one thing the internet does well in quarantine, it’s humor.
Scrolling through social media lately, one does not have to go long without seeing a snarky but relatable joke about #QuarantineLife:
…But before we sign off, a quick word to every one of you out there: we at TWP want to extend our most sincere love and appreciation. We know how precious your time and attention is, and we are grateful you continue to choose to trust us. TWP has always and will always run on community, and so we know how hard all of you are working right now to keep yourselves and your people healthy, well, happy, and connected through this. Thank you to our healthcare workers, our first responders, our essential community workers, our community leaders, our RI artists, and our incredibly kickass Rhode Island network of volunteers and supporters. We are a tiny state full of mighty power! Keep it up with “the #knockitoff,” Rhode Island! 😉
