Jimmy Fallon Asks the Internet to Describe Their Quarantine Experiences in 6 Words | 22 Words

Across the world, people have been living in various states of quarantine and it's made it pretty clear that humans are built to be a social species. We've all started to go a little bit crazy, but on the plus side, Jimmy Fallon has been giving us one source of joy: home video versions of The Tonight Show.

But even Jimmy Fallon doesn't want to be alone during quarantine, so he threw out a challenge to the entire Internet: describe what quarantine is like for you in six words. Never one to shy away from a challenge, Fallon kicked it off with the simple and beautiful "Fine. You can paint daddy's nails."

If you're still trying to figure out how to sum up, "Oh god I'm so bored everything is awful why won't my cat get off my head" in six words, you can fill the time with these quality submissions to the hashtag.

We're all a little bit unsettled by our quarantine experiences.

This is why we're starting this list with a post that reminds us it could always be worse: we could be channeling The Shining, and then COVID wouldn't even have a chance to get us.

This year has been truly awful.

But now that we're all stuck at home it's personal. This actual toilet is in charge of my life and I want off.

Instead of going the violent route, some people have gotten creative with their quarantine.

It seems a little bit sad to play theย Friends theme song when you're being forcibly kept away from your friends, but this dude does have some serious skills.

But some people have managed to find new friends in this trying time.

By "friends" we mean pets, because the world collectively lost its mind and decided we needed to squeeze another living being into our homes for an extended period of time.

Then again not all pets are friends.

I haven't left the house in one week, and it's growing steadily clearer that my cats have a plan if I don't get out of their space soon.

Some people at least have animals to keep them company.

But this guy has had to build his own. Out of dryer lint. This has definitely reached horror movie levels of bad.

And if you don't have animals, you may have to find a different kind of pet.

If you give it a name it becomes a pet, whether it's a flower or a rock or a creature made out of dryer lint. You just have to use your imagination.

At least there are some perks to the quarantine situation.

Never putting clothes on? Heck yes. Cozy, comfy pajamas? Heck yes. Give me those fuzzy slippers.

There are...also some downsides to the lack of getting dressed.

Even if no one will see you you should shower. And wash your hair. Just stay clean out there friends.

Or you can embrace it and call it fashion.

I call this the braless work from home. It's the "little black dress" of quarantine.

On the other hand, there's the negatives that have come from some people hoarding.

I really do need toilet paper. Or maybe a bidet. Honestly I'd take anything at this point.

And then there are the things that could go either way...

So much time to work on projects! Gonna be so productive! So much time to work on projects...with nothing else to do. Excuse me while I cry.

But even if you do have oodles of time to work, no one is around to see if you're getting much done.

I'm working on a very important project right now for the office. Yes,ย The Office, the television show. I'm rewatching it.

Other people have made their quarantine all about stocking up with certain items.

Some people bought out the toilet paper aisle. Other people went to the important spot: wine.

And then there's the people who actually are having some wholesome fun while in quarantine.

This mom let her kid give her a makeover and the wholesomeness has given us enough energy to last another week in quarantine.

Other folks are using their sense of humor to cope with the quarantine.

COVID turns you into a zombie right? That's what this virus does?

But the most important part of quarantine is keeping a positive outlook.

Things could be worse: instead of being stuck inside you could be dead! Isn't that fun?

It turns out there was a happier way of saying that.

And it's with song! Everything sounds better with a disco beat behind it, even being in quarantine.

And if you're not dead yet, you might just be worrying you WILL be dead.

Am I dying? Is this the end? Did I get the virus by opening my windows? Where did I go wrong?

Unless of course you're one of the "essential workers".

Some people responded to the hashtag with images of what they're up to...and this grocery worker seems like they have their hands full. Godspeed to all our workers keeping us fed and toilet papered.

Once you've started having one death scare a day you start to get pretty cranky.

You may even find yourself overreacting to small things, like your spouse leaving a dirty plate out or your child eating snacks that weren't theirs KEVIN.

Unless of course you're an introvert.

Then this is your natural state of being, and you're just sitting over here eating your pizza and wondering why everyone is freaking out.

But even if you are introverted, having your whole family in one house for days at a time can be a bit much.

You might find yourself taking it out on any "Corona" you can get your hands on, even if it means sacrificing a beer.

And if the beer doesn't get it, your coworkers definitely will.

I thought that this time apart would finally help people to understand how many things should be e-mails. It has not.

None of us like being told we have to stay inside.

It's like we've been put in a cage. Like a rat. A rat in a cage.

It's somewhat akin to detention, for adults.

Wait that's just called jail. This is like we've all been put in jail.

And let me tell you this is not helping me with my 2020 fitness goals.

Unlike real jail where I can work out in an intimidating fashion in the yard, at home the most I can do is run up and down the stairs all day.

I guess I have to find other ways to look intimidating.

Playing Poker with my cat counts as "cool" right? I'm really running out of other options here.

At least I'm not drinking alone, that would be so sad.

I have all these friends here with me. See? They have faces. That makes them a friend. We established that with dryer lint 20 slides ago.

But no matter what I'm not going to let this quarantine break my spirit.

In fact I'm developing a new kind of spirit. A quaran-teen spirit.
