A CO-HABITING couple are living through lockdown for all the world as if they will not split the moment it is over.
Donna Sheridan and Stephen Malley are both breezing through their weeks of lockdown together with every appearance of being a happy, committed couple, confident in the knowledge their relationship will very soon be done.
Sheridan said: “You’d never know. Apart from I’m paying undue attention to when the lockdown will be over and discreetly packing a few things.
“I’m actually enjoying his company at this point, in a one-last-hurrah kind of a way, while still making post-pandemic plans for citybreaks and restaurant visits as if I won’t be gone the second the rules are relaxed.”
Malley agreed: “I don’t think Donna realises, but I’ll be binge-drinking with the boys in the Bahamas rather than the romantic trip to Florence she’s on about. But why bring that up now?
“Instead we’ll enjoy these final weeks together in her blissful ignorance then as soon as this dystopia is over, I get the f**k out of here before she finds out I shagged her sister.”
In a further three weeks, Malley and Sheridan are expected to be smiling with clenched teeth as the prime minister announces lockdown will continue until August.
