Housebound?


At the heart of much speculative fiction (and fiction in general) is a question. What if? On Tuesdays I like to throw one out there and see what you make of it. Do with it as you please. If a for-instance is not specified, feel free to interpret that instance as you wish. And if you find this becomes a novel-length answer, I'd appreciate a thank you in the acknowledgements. 😉

I thought this week I'd go topical:

What if you were put under quarantine?

  1. My favorite place is home so as long as I had enough food, I'd be happy for a week or two.

  2. In this day and age, with the internet at our fingertips, it's easy to stay connected while housebound. So it wouldn't be terrible. But I used to work from home ...and very much looked forward to that one day a week when I headed to the office.

  4. I would love it. Actually with all the delivery services out there one can be at home for weeks and never encounter anyone. They could just leave supplies out in front.

  5. I think I would go crazy. When I am stuck in the house after a big snowstorm is how I would feel, multiplied by who knows what number. I have a lot of crocheting to work on, and reading material to read, and (as long as the power stays on) Internet, yet I know I would be pretty miserable after a few days (assuming I wasn't sick, which would make it that much worse).

  6. I know I would get bored. I have done of projects I could be doing. Plus cleaning which is no fun.

    1. I think many of us would be upset if we lost either of those.

  8. If I got paid..Yahoo! I can look outside and enjoy making cards and watching movies. I would be ok. Now another good friend of mine would die..he has to be always on the go and often goes to 3 events in one night!

    1. Ah, that is a good question. Being paid? I did not specify...

  9. I don't think it will be much different than the way we live now. We're not reclusive but we can most of the week without going out.
