Tom revealed that he saw many trying to overbuy key essential items and wondered if they were entering a zombie apocalypse phase.

“When everybody was starting to store toilet paper and take things off the shelves it was like, hang on, do we need to arm ourselves? Is this the zombie apocalypse? There was a moment at the beginning where it was like, are people going to riot?” he remembers.

Tom revealed that his home life turned into a lot of workouts, home-schooling and yes, he was even one of the celebs making bread at home. The latter he enjoyed a lot.

“I still have the leaven! You have to feed that every day. That’s a commitment. I’ve actually managed to back it up so I’ve got two. Just in case someone drops one on the floor or the jar explodes and it’s like, ‘That’s a year-and-a-half’s work!’” he laughed. “I was thinking I might open up a sourdough café. Coffee and sourdough and jiu-jitsu and AA meetings. You can bring your dog.”

He also shared how the pandemic forced him to take a big look at what was important and what wasn’t.

“I had an opportunity to observe the world and my own behaviors and how I lived my life and what’s important and what isn’t,” Tom says. “I think there’s less reason to work, ultimately, because the life-drive is to be with the kids and to be fit and healthy and eat well and stuff.”

He added, “If you’ve got a roof over your head and a bed underneath you and food in the fridge, how much is enough? Because it’s not a dress rehearsal, life, is it? It’s going out live. This is one-time.”
