CLOCK TOWN, Termina — Clock Town resident and Stock Pot Inn owner Anju, 17, reported confusion today after struggling to remember what day it was due to Clock Town’s ongoing stay-at-home order.
“I was halfway to the Laundry Pool to do my chores before I realized it was the Dawn of the First Day,” Anju said after finishing her lunch in the inn’s Employees Only room. “It was a miracle I was able to make it back to the inn in time to stand behind the Front Desk for four hours, then walk to the door, lock the door, return to the Employees Only room, and speak to my mother about fleeing to Romani Ranch. I feel helpless being stuck inside all day, but I suppose there’s nothing I can do but wake up at 6 a.m. like every morning and start all over again.”
When asked for comment, Mayor Dotour sympathized with his constituents struggling to maintain their schedules in the face of unprecedented times.
“Even though I sit in my office all day taking meetings, I too lose track of what day it is. This is why it’s so important, now more than ever, that we push onwards and hold the Carnival of Time as planned. It’s supposed to happen tonight, I think.”
Many other Clock Town residents expressed frustration about the seemingly endless quarantine measures.
“We’re all finding ways to manage, but how long is this going to go on?” said a man in a blue shirt juggling in the town square. “It’s like I’m living the same day over and over and over again.”
At press time, several members of a local construction crew reported feeling like time was moving even faster after a young boy played an uptempo tune on his ocarina.
