Togetherness is lovely, but you know…too much is not good. Absence makes the heart grow fonder. Have separate activities and jobs and experiences gives us something to talk about at home.
And many married couples are finding out just how true those statements are now that we’ve all been stuck inside together with our spouses and families far more hours than we’ve been out and about with others.
This woman, an uninterested audience of one to her husband’s spontaneous performance of the Golden Girls’ theme song, is wearing an expression that is going to hit most of us right in the feels.
She is us. We are her.
We have had enough togetherness.
TikTok user John Randazzo (aka pappajohnnydukes) recently posted this video of himself belting out the tune, and unlike most of his videos, this one really resonated with people.
It’s not his enthusiastic performance, though – it’s the woman’s expression in the frame with him.
This woman (we’re assuming his wife), is just trying to do her own nails in peace, but he just won’t take a hint.
The remote for a microphone, the charming personality, the halfway decent rendition – none of it is working for her. Eventually she puts down her polish and picks up her wine, giving the camera a long suffering, unamused stare that spoke right to my soul.
We’re going to be okay, you guys. We have Netflix, she has wine, and we all presumably have locks on our doors.
