Area Romeo Continues to Disregard Shelter in Place Order for Potential Smooches
Once a bad boy, always a bad boy.
Romeo Montague, the 1700s knew him as William Shakespeare’s tragic protagonist who had a particular knack for getting himself into trouble. In 2020 we may not have the exact Romeo that has been etched in the sands of time but, believe you me, there are quite a large number of Romeos anywhere you may be.
This story concerns the likes of one, Mr. Area Romeo who goes by the name of Kevin. They’re all named Kevin. Mr. Kevin is a bit of a player. You see there had been reports of Mr. Kevin leaving his home at night to visit his girlfriend of 3 weeks, Ms. Area Juliet, also known as Emily. They’re all named Emily.
Now, for youth to leave their home at night is typically seen as taboo but, an extra layer of misbehavior exists in this case as Kevin’s town is currently under a shelter-in-place order due to a global pandemic. But, hey, Kev Kev need his smooches.
Despite Emily explaining the gravity of the situation to Kevin in hushed tones from her bedroom window, Kevin continued to display great selfishness as he nonetheless, snuck out. “I just need smooches! What’s so bad about that?” Kevin barked up at Emily’s window. “Smooches? Smooches? You’ve done enough by going outside as a potential carrier of the virus, and now you think it is a good idea to exchange saliva?” Emily, rather appropriately barked back before shutting the window.
Will our modern-day Romeo continue to put the health and well-being of his community after his own need to ‘get some?’ Signs point to yes.
