Let's admit it. Ordering Chipotle on your phone app and having it ready for pickup before the time it takes you to drive there ...that's awesome!
You could once again sneak a couple of your friends into the movies so long as they were cool with wearing masks while cramped in your trunk during check-in.

Business on top, party on the bottom
You might have ironed your shirt for an important zoom call, but you definitely wore pajama bottoms. What a great excuse to skimp on dry cleaning and personal hygiene items so you could feel good about applying more of your stimulus check to supporting essential businesses (the liquor stores and dispensaries).
If you were one of the few who had to actually drive to work, you sure got there quickly!
If you ran out of something to talk about during a zoom call, you could always pose the question: “Did Carole kill her husband?”

Remember January of 2020 and how it seemed so ordinary at the time? Had we known what was coming, the month of January would have been off the hook!
