Jimmy Fallon Asked What People Are Doing While Bored In Quarantine and These Are 19 of the Best Answers
Have you seen the at-home edition of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon? Fallon is hosting the show directly from his home. Being home like the rest of us means that Fallon probably has some extra time on his hands.
While some people are chasing around toddlers and struggling to fit a full day of work into a work-from-home lifestyle, other people are so bored they are coming up with crazy ways to entertain themselves.
Fallon had a brilliant idea with his new hashtag challenge.
“Tell us a funny thing you’ve done to pass the time in quarantine.”
Fans have delivered! Using the hashtag #ImSoBored, they have shared the hilarious ways they have been keeping themselves busy at home. While many of these ideas are funny, we actually want to try a few of them.

We would probably binge watch that too.
#Imsobored I am playing with my dog’s toys while he sleeps.
— Lauren Eastman (@EastmanLauren) March 30, 2020
Depends on the dog toys. This could be a great way to mix things up.

Why buy dog clothes when you can use people clothes? This dog is a really good sport. He must be bored too.
What Did I Eat?

This is one game I would not want to play.
#Imsobored We drew racing lines on the window, to see who’s raindrop would win during the storm.

Next time it rains, it could pass the time.

That’s one talented dog!

Have you noticed fewer telemarketer calls recently? They must be working from home (or not working) too.
#imsobored I actually did my taxes, early.

Now, that’s bored, especially since the deadline has been extended.
#imsobored I counted the 1000 pieces of a brand new 1000 piece puzzle before I started it, so that I wouldn’t be disappointed in the end if one was missing! It has happened! Lol

This could be a good assignment for a bored school-aged kid. “Do your school work or you’ll have to count all the puzzle pieces.”
#ImSoBored I actually listened to one of my 8 yr old’s never ending stories… “yea, and then what happened!?”
— Barefoot Activist (@ProtestMom) March 30, 2020
Listening to your kids is actually highly recommended, but we know how those never-ending stories can be.

It definitely is a good thing it’s not winter!
We had a turtle race with our classroom turtles via zoom! #ImSoBored

Maybe this would be more exciting than racing raindrops? Not sure.
#imsobored I actually begged my kids to let me help them do their schoolwork
— Torger Sikveland (@SuitRichard) March 30, 2020
At least it sounds like the kids aren’t bored.
I Made a House
— Nancy Wright (@zinnia_joy) March 30, 2020
That’s actually pretty impressive.
— George David Volz (@shmeil80) March 31, 2020
Wow! I was never that good with an Etch-a-Sketch.
A Painting Dog
— Karen Ruhland (@megashoefreak) March 30, 2020
Yes, why not, indeed.
The funny thing I’ve done during this time is make a new activity for my kids- Indoor Cycling!! Place training wheels inside shoes large enough to prop up the back tire and pedal! We even have timed races! 🚲 #ImSoBoredI pic.twitter.com/Mi3aEbFRDS

This is actually a great idea.
— Lacey (@laceyfran) March 30, 2020
So, there really is a difference!
What’s for Dinner?
#ImSoBored I took the labels off all our canned food so every nights dinner had a surprise.
— Anthony Gregory (@anthonygregory) March 30, 2020
I don’t think I’m brave enough to do that.
How have you been keeping busy during the coronavirus pandemic? Are you bored?
