covid-19 idioms

Apple’s latest event announcement carried a “Time Flies” moniker. My brain auto-completed the phrase “when you’re having fun” to a moderate amount of cognitive dissonance. It seems that quite a few of our idioms fly in the face of the current global situation.

I’ve tried to update just a few:

  • We’ll cross that bridge when their transmission rate is under control.
  • A toilet paper square saved is a toilet paper square earned.
  • Time flies when you’re having a soul-crushing pandemic.
  • The early bird gets the hand sanitizer.
  • There’s no place like anywhere else.
  • A mask in time saves nine.
