At first, staying home seemed one heck of an easy task. It had it all—PJ’s all day without a sense of guilt, Netflix playing on repeat, and cocktail ‘o’ clock whenever you please. But it turned out, lockdown is a slippery business. A step too close from your home and you fall into the grips of cabin fever.

So when Jimmy Fallon announced his hashtag #IKnewIHadCabinFeverWhen challenge on Twitter, it struck a chord big time. People shared the moments they realized being housebound is not simply a game.

And the comedian wasn’t immune to the fever himself. “You’re like a son to me,” he whispered to his hand sanitizer. Let’s see what stories other people had to tell about climbing the walls during the lockdown. Don’t forget to upvote your favorites!

NBC’s award winning show Saturday Night Live first premiered on October 11, 1975. Jimmy Fallon was commissioned as a cast member in 1988, and in 2014, he became the sixth permanent host of the long-running The Tonight Show. His weekly hashtag challenges and active social media presence have won him a solid fan-base. Fallon’s #TumbleweedChallenge has generated over 8K submissions and 10.4 million engagements for TikTok. This was the biggest spike recorded by TikTok since the app launched in 2016.

My daughters job is to take the bins out and she often complains, today she said “I don’t want to go out there in case I get coronavirus”. It’s only early days of isolation for us, so we are not at the stage where we fight over who gets to take the bins out.

That’s an excellent coping strategy ❤️. That might be why they stay up until 3am too… To get alone time.

Look at this stuff, isn’t it neat? Wouldn’t you say my collections complete? Wouldn’t you say I’m a girl….a girl who has everything. Look at this trove, treasures untold, how many wonders can one cavern hold? Looking around you you’d say “Sure…she’s got everything” I’ve got gadgets and gizmos a plenty, I’ve got whosits and whatsits galore…. you want thingamabobs? I’ve got 20…but who cares, no big deal, I waaaant mooooree…….
