A viral love affair

We are all going to extremes to stop the coronavirus.

Like when we bump into an acquaintance …

… and even an old friend.

First date

They considered various seating arrangements.


She loved his hand-washing reminders.

He complimented the fragrance of her hand sanitizer.

The two traded secrets right away.

It was clearly a match.

She took him home …

… and they ended the night with a passionate hug.

They became close fast.

They quarantined together.

Went jogging.



They were proud of what they hoarded together.

Then, one day, out of the blue …

The ceremony was live-streamed to friends and family.

They got a great deal for the honeymoon,

but they are still waiting for a first kiss.
