Quarantine can be a lonely period, as we have seen from personal experience or that of our friends. Being confined solitarily in an isolated space for long can be tedious at times. However, the self-quarantine period can be made tolerable with the support of family or loved ones by our side. A recently surfaced video shows how a father went out of his way to sneak in some drinks for his daughter who was in quarantine. The adorable gesture by the doting dad went viral and was appreciated by all. Take a look:
The video was originally shared on TikTok by user Emma Hausler, who recorded her father bringing her drinks during her 14-day self-quarantine period. The 19-second clip soon found its way to Twitter, where it received 398k views and 17.4k likes. In the short video, we can see how Hausler's father places the drinks next to a window or hands it to her directly in the room where she is supposedly quarantining. The video featured many drinks such as juices, colas, cocktails and soft drinks. Once he gives her the drink, he quickly runs away in the cutest way possible.
Users thronged the comments section on Twitter, expressing their adulation for the sweet father. Many also enquired about the reason he was running away after keeping the drink, and whether it was to prevent contracting Covid-19. Emma Hausler explained that he was probably doing it for a dramatic effect for the video. She also said that the video was from a year ago.
This was from a year ago. I had just come back from New York and my parents wanted me to quarantine in my room for 2 weeks! My dad thought it would be funny to have drinks delivered to my window and then run way for dramatic effect. Lol— Emma Hausler (@emmahausler) February 28, 2021
Just for reference, I did NOT have covid. This video was from a year ago. I had just come back to la after being in New York for a month! Just wanted to be safe and quarantine for 2 weeks. And we lived in the same house— Emma Hausler (@emmahausler) February 28, 2021
