Seven months into the coronavirus pandemic, those of us who’ve been in lockdown with our significant others could write whole books about their weird habits and the little factoids about their childhood they’ve let slip out of sheer boredom. If you’re working from home together, you’ve met the work version of your partner, too: “You scheduled a recurring work meeting at 7:30 a.m. on Mondays? What kind of monster are you?”
And if “whole books” is stretching it, there are definitely some pretty entertaining tweets out there. Below, we’ve rounded up 38 funny, relatable tweets on the new things people have learned about their partners thanks to COVID-19.
