Captain’s Log, USS Coronavirus: Day 15

We’ve been on this ship for, what seems like, years. I’ve been my crew’s hostage for, again, years. I don’t know the day or the date — I’m keeping track of my time in captivity by marking the wall. It’s bleak and depressing but I fear I’ll lose my mind if I don’t mark time […]

Captain’s Log, USS Coronavirus: Day 10

Since I became their hostage, I assumed my captors (AKA my former crew) would isolate me in my chambers. In truth, I was looking forward to it.

Each day, I dress proudly in my Captain’s uniform. Today, the most senior crew member asked, “Why do you wear the same clothes every day?” Can you imagine asking a senior officer such a question about her uniform? Shocking lack of respect. I put her on cleanup duty. The middle ranking crew member has a […]

Captain’s Log, USS Coronavirus: Day 1

Disclaimer: this post is designed to bring about a little levity during a very serious time. Staying home with children is a privilege — but it is also a challenge. We are in this together. It’s my first day as captain of the ship USS Coronavirus. The ship consists of myself, my first mate, three […]
