Wow! The things we do for entertainment and how the most basic things can go viral!
It seems that all over the world due to Coronavirus we humans are doing all sorts of things, both basic and inventive to amuse ourselves, whilst staying at home.

Somehow, I stumbled across someone putting their bin out whilst wearing a fancy dress or costume of some sort. I went onto Facebook and discovered that there are two huge Facebooks groups solely about putting your bins out.

This sort of thing is usually not me but for some unknown reason I decided I would join both groups and jump on and put up a post.
So first of all, I put on a ballgown and snapped a photo of me with my shiny new bin. Uploading it was a bit scary but I did it anyhow.
The “likes” and comments started coming in like wildfire. Initially I tried to be polite and told myself I’d reply to everyone with at least the senders name and the word thank you with a smiley face emoji. BUT, the comments kept coming and two hours later I was still sitting on my couch. Grrr!!!!!
It’s only been about 12 hours since I uploaded my post and the comments are still coming in. I’ll go to bed and see where it’s at when I wake up.
If anything, I guess this is just a little project or experience to kill time whilst staying at home during this worldwide pandemic of Coronavirus and it's all about having fun! Some people have gone to a lot of effort to put up some really creative and inventive posts. Some of them are hilarious, so go on and have a look.
