Hello, and welcome back to Did You See My Email!
If you've been to a grocery store or even just like, out into the world at some point this week, you know there is some serious NERVOUS ENERGY™ happening out there. There's no fucking pasta anywhere, working from home has me losing my gd mind, AND Tom Hanks has IT.
Although I consider NERVOUS ENERGY™ to be somewhat of my personal brand, I've found some comfort this week in sourcing advice from people I like and trust and who are funny:
Instead of hoarding the entire grocery store to yourself, my very smart scientist Ling says: "Pick up just a little bit more of everything. Panic buying causes shocks in the system that are harder to recover from."
According to my friend Emma, here's what to do when Trader Joe's is out of everything: "Go to your local kosher market! I went today and no one was in there!"
And from Tom Hanks' son, Chet (not a close friend of mine, though I wish he were): "Ya its true my parents got coronavirus…but they’re not even that sick, they’re not trippin.”
Thanks to Ling, Emma, and Chet for talking me off the ledge, to Zenny for sharing the above image, and to you for being here ❤️now onto the internet things!
