We all made self-deprecating jokes about wearing the same sweatpants and t-shirts to work every day, but it felt nice that we were were all in on the joke. It was this moment in time unlike any other moment in time that was somehow made less scary and more pleasantly surreal just by the fact that we were all experiencing these same things together.
