The kids’ last day of in school education for the 2019/2020 academic year occurred on Friday March 13. During the month, while we effortlessly (insert guffaw here) transitioned to online education, Brian and his staff continued to enter NYC, the epicenter of the contagion, each day and tirelessly worked to ensure that the company employees were able to work safely and remotely.
On April 14, 2020, Brian’s first day working from home, he got up, showered, and proceeded to put on business attire, down to the shoes. I snapped a pic, joking that he didn’t understand how working from home is supposed to work, and from there, things just kinda kept going.
Below is a photo montage and original captions of Brian, working from home. As the pandemic continues and working from home is his new norm, I will continue to add to this collection when possible. It is definitely a work in progress.
Now this is where it started to get fun…
On April 28th, daily jokes, memes, and props entered the mix whenever available, after I repainted and reorganized the office…
The sun did not shine It was too wet to play So he sat in his suit On this wet quarantine day
He sat and he stared At his computer and zoom He talked and he listened To Cara & Lou

Will it take a week, a month, A year, maybe more? We have no way of knowing What else is in store.
Unless it is safe, Until it is sound: He keeps his staff safe. He won’t mess around.
So he sits and he works, All dressed up at home; Planning on his computer And talking on his phone…
There once was a man who was quarantined Working from home on day fourteen He dressed every morn Business attire was worn For he claimed ‘twas more comfortable than blue jeans
In related news, this popped up in my fb memories today and was totally “operapropo” for today’s theme. Originally posted 6.5.13 when the kids were 4, 3, & 18 months old. I still remember it as though it was yesterday:
So I pull up to a red light and there’s a gentleman in the truck to my left. He smiles at me, a skeevy kind of crooked grin and just then, Lady J rolls down her window revealing the chaos in the back seat:
K-Mad in the middle with both legs in the air trying to reach her siblings and laughing her maniacal laugh. Maxman pushing her leg away and shouting, “No Kendy! Pwease stop!” And Lady J happily singing, “He’s here! The phantom of the opera!”
The man looks horrified and turns to face forward, both hands gripped tightly on the wheel, and speeds off as the light turns green…
