This would be a great time to learn to walk on one's hands.

Be on eBay constantly and buying too many instruments.

I've bought several new whistles this year, but only one came from eBay.

Spare ribs for Thanksgiving. The stores were out of turkeys.

One possible explanation is that buying for donation to those in need must have increased significantly; otherwise, would people be hoarding turkeys like toilet paper? That way lies madness.

Possibly not hoarding, but lower supply to begin with. Seems I heard someone mention that a while back.

Aha. I seem to have missed the memo. Still, I can't say that I was really surprised in any case. But they were out of chickens, too! And in a way I'm glad; a roast chicken on Thanksgiving is like a cultural slap in the face, so if you're going to buck tradition, it might as well be ribs; at least it won't look like as much of a farce.

Unlike our Kitchen God Ben, I don't cook much and almost never use the oven (T-day turkey's the SO's domain, and rightly so), but I volunteered to do up the ribs - and then realized that I don't know the first thing about ribs if it doesn't involve a day in the slow-cooker. Fortunately we have internet. If any of you haven't baked ribs before, it's simplicity itself: 300F, 3 hours, the last half of it covered; the rest is details. For prep I did the predictable: seasoned them with salt and pepper, and slathered them with a light coating of BBQ sauce; halfway through I generously spooned on more sauce, covered the pan w/ foil and back into the oven for another hour and a half, et voilà. Very tender indeed.

Here's how much of a cook I am not: they weren't spare ribs after all, but something called "country ribs", whatever the hell that is. I had no idea that ribs of the rural persuasion go ribless. How is it they're called "ribs", again?

I thought it was going to be Little Richard, but this covers more territory.

Please don't show that nose whistling video to my husband, I'd lose custody of them.

As for things to try while sequestering, here's a few I've tried and some I've failed at, that I recommend.

Try to learn Hand Flute (result, fail)

Learn to whistle loud with two fingers (result fail)

Make a ton of different paper airplanes and compete with someone else to see who made the best (result, total win, we'll keep doing this)

learn to make profiteroles/cream puffs/choux pastry.(result, win win win win win definitely do this, it's way easier than it looks!)

learn to move each toe independently. (result mixed, for me it was great, I can do this, my husband didn't keep trying past two minutes. supposed to be good for you though)

learn calligraphy (result mixed, husband can do it and likes it, I prefer to watch him do it than do it myself)

learn to lockpick (result not yet available, it's a work in progress, but husband is keener to learn than I am so will be a solo project)

and a skill I think is good to have though I didn't learn it during the virus, but may be hard to learn if you can't go outside:

learn to orient from a map and properly use a compass.

It's possible:

Very forward-thinking! I applaud your industry.

Tried it once, as a friend had a lockpicking set he let me borrow. I spent a lot of time trying to pick a MasterLock I had that had a reputation for being so easy to pick that you could practically do it with spaghetti (I think someone somewhere did), never came even close, decided I probably had no skills in this area... (I think I may have slightly bunged up something inside the lock, though... luckily it still works.)
