Call No. 233

Hi there, corona hotline. My name is Rikke. I’m calling from Copenhagen in Denmark. I actually wasn’t supposed to be staying in Denmark for more than just the month of March. I’d come back because one of my friends was turning 40, and obviously I’m going to be home for his birthday party, but, yeah, it looks like I’m going to be staying awhile longer. I had a flight going out to Dublin in Ireland, where I work and have my company, but yeah, I’m going to be staying for a while longer. We’ll see how long it lasts. But, so one of my friends has set me up in his apartment while he’s staying somewhere else. He’s actually gone out of the city because, his girlfriend is pregnant and they’d just rather be at their summer house, until this whole thing blows over.

So, I’m at his place, and today I went out and bought like, a preheated or, well, a frozen pizza. And I thought it’d be easy enough to heat it up, but, his oven is much weirder than the ones that I’m used to and I just couldn’t make out what I was supposed to put in in order to get a pizza ready. So I just popped it in and I put the settings on whatever it said there. I’m not sure. I left it in for ten minutes. I came back to it and it was black. It was black. Totally inedible. Now I’m dead hungry and I’m going to have to go out again and probably buy something that doesn’t need heating. Eh, maybe I’ll cook something up myself. And hopefully I’ll also get to know the oven a little bit better, since I’m going to be staying here for a little while. Yeah, so, that’s my Corona story for today. Hope you’re all doing well. Staying safe. Alright. Bye.
