  • Covid-19 and lockdowns suck in so many ways.

  • But when it comes to our relationship...

  • It was actually pretty great!

  • This is the true story of our lockdown.

  • Before the two-month lockdown, Alyne and I were having problems: We were not communicating enough.

  • So, on average, we would spend two hours together every day.

  • And in that time, we would be tired, grumpy, and in a bad mood.

  • And sometimes, we would fight!

  • No, you can't randomly say three minutes.

  • These arguments would last for days at a time, and we would never have the time to actually fix them... until all of a sudden:


  • I couldn't go to the office anymore.

  • And I couldn't travel anymore.

  • And we were forced to stay inside as much as possible.

  • So every hour, every minute, and every dang second, we spent together.

  • We would wake up here, and we would go to work here every single day!

  • And this lockdown forced us to communicate.

  • Corona said, "They need to stay together."

  • "Let's make a lockdown happened, so they have to hang out and talk about things, and now I'm very happy."

  • So, anytime we had an argument, it didn't take us hours to resolve!

  • It only took five minutes because now, it's illegal for you to escape.

  • So, you said before lockdown you were eight percent.

  • So you had eight percent left to break up with me!

  • Well, for us to break up with each other, yes.

  • And now, what's the percentage at?

  • -I'm at 98, I'm happy! -98?

  • I'm very pleased right now.

  • Lockdown does one out of two things to a relationship.

  • One: It makes it stronger.

  • Or two: It breaks it.

  • That's why after a lockdown, the divorce rate in many cities went up - people couldn't take it anymore, while others fell in love more and had more babies.

  • That's why in nine months people expect a baby boom.

  • And while we're definitely not gonna have a baby, at least we still have each other.

  • This is the story of one relationship out of many, and the idea behind it is simple.

  • A lockdown is like using a pressure cooker for the first time.

  • If you don't know how to use it, it could explode in your face.

  • But if you do, it will make you a very delicious meal. And that is how the pressure of a lockdown fixed our relationship.

  • For now!

  • For now.

  • -See you next week. -Adios me gusta!
