Times are tough enough – let’s not argue.

Strong opinions are as plentiful as passport stamps around here, especially when it comes to travel. Our editorial team has gamely thrown down on the merits of room service, window versus aisle seats, checking luggage versus carrying on, and when to get to the airport. The current state of things, though, has us checking our argumentative sides. We tried to come up with a Covid-19-era-appropriate travel showdown. But we’re having a kumbaya moment right now. Here are a handful of topics we couldn’t bring ourselves to debate.

 
Zoom meeting: sweatpants vs. Zoom meeting: no pants
 
My family is driving me crazy vs. I’m driving myself crazy
 
Extreme adventures: Grocery shopping vs. Take-out
 
Family mealtime vs. Everyone fend for themselves (yes, you can have cereal for dinner – again)
 
Online shopping: Cute future vacay outfits vs. Comfy stay-at-home loungewear
 
Organize travel photos vs. Time-sucking detour down memory lane (aww, look how little the kids were!)
 
Shampoo vs. Dry shampoo (again)
 
Uno vs. Crazy Eights
 
5 o’clock here vs. 5 o’clock wherever our FaceTime friends are
 
Shaken vs. Stirred
 
The Macallan 12 vs. The Macallan 15
 
Dish duty vs. Laundry detail
 
Husbands vs. Wives
 
Homemade mask vs. Hand-tied bandana
 
New dog vs. New cat
 
Netflix vs. Hulu
 
Trim your own bangs vs. Put down the scissors
 
Common Core math vs. It makes no sense
 
Serious work vs. Serious search for someone’s lost sock
 
Praying the kids will be quiet during conference calls vs. Locking them outside 
 
Working from the couch vs. Working from the kitchen counter
 
I can’t wait to travel again vs. No, I can’t wait to travel again
