“It’s been ages since we hung out.” Josh missed the pre-pandemic life.
“Oh tell us about it. The pandemic and endless lockdowns have been so challenging.” The entire squad exclaimed in unison.
“What about a drive today?”
And before his friends could say anything, he got out his flashy new BMW and off they went for a spin. As they reached their favourite spot, they were just overwhelmed taking in the environment after so long.
But while coming back, the excitement got too much as Josh lost control and rammed his car through the boundary wall of his neighbours estate.

No doubt, it’ll take all of us a little adjusting to the post-pandemic new normals. Hopefully, less dramatically than those in your story.
Oh yes definitely :). While the excitement at going out will be there, we all need to be a wee bit careful :D.
An interesting metaphor for the return to “normal”
Thanks Neil :).
An excellent combination again
Thank you :).
Ouch, let’s hope not all the post-pandemic outings end like this.
Oh yes, I guess the extra excitement wasn’t too good for them :D.
Looks like their post pandemic trip didn’t go so well! Great take, Aseem!
Yeah I think the excitement got the better of them :P.
He left one set of problems behind and picked up a whole new set. Timely story!
Ahh I guess the excitement of going out in the open got to him :P.
It’s true, some of us haven’t driven for so long we need to be extra careful going back out there
Oh yes definitely quite important to be very careful at least for starters.
Definitely been there, having a great day and running into things. Fortunately not with my car, yet. Or ever. Hopefully not ever!
Ahh that’s good :D. Hopefully none of us end up in a situation like this especially jumping on the excitement of getting out of lockdown.
