The child's mother stood at the front door in her pyjamas, glass of red wine in hand and called out to her child that it was only 7am and a bit early to be running around outside.
It's just one of the videos, memes and GIFs doing the rounds on social media since the lockdown began, sending up the tendency to reach for the bottle early and often at this time of international crisis.
And while we may be badly in need of humour right now, experts says alcohol is definitely not the answer to the stress we're feeling.
The spike in global alcohol consumption led a senior World Health Organisation (WHO) official to describe alcohol as an "unhelpful coping strategy" which could make things worse.
In the US, the sales of alcoholic drinks shot up by 55pc as the pandemic took hold, according to Nielsen, the market research experts, with gin, tequila and pre-mixed cocktails showing the biggest increases. Here, Nielsen says there has been an 18pc rise in alcohol sales year-on-year with sales recently surging 33pc in a week as the Covid-19 crisis continued.
Off-licences are on the list of retail outlets deemed essential enough to remain open despite the new restrictions.
However, not every jurisdiction agrees that they're essential, with South Africa and Hong Kong shutting them down. Banning the sale of alcohol in Greenland, Prime Minister Kim Kielsen said drink made people "less aware of the danger of contamination". He said the decision was taken to protect children and ensure they have "a safe home".
The Alcohol Forum, a national charity that provides support to those affected by heavy drinking, has raised its concerns about "dial-a-drink" services being provided during the coronavirus crisis.
Dr Helen McMonagle, a specialist who works with the forum, says requiring proof of age is currently impossible to enforce in a home-delivery situation as the law requires that the sale must take place in advance of the alcohol leaving the licensed premises.
And while she says off-licence sales of alcohol are permitted at certain times, she believes "dial-a-drink" services are routinely operating outside of these hours. These services deliver alcohol to homes by car. "We are definitely seeing anecdotal evidence of increases in home drinking at this time and are very concerned about the impact this is having on children who are spending prolonged periods of time at home.
"A parent's alcohol misuse can dominate family relationships, affecting children both physically and emotionally and this is a particularly challenging time as children may have little respite from this situation, either through school or support services," says Dr McMonagle.
The organisation is urging families to adopt alcohol-free days, having rules around time and alcohol - for example not having a drink until after 10pm, especially if there are kids in the home.
Making sure there is one non-drinking adult in the house at all times, not stockpiling alcohol, and reaching out for help if you need it are among the tips the forum is giving to the public at this time.
Alcohol Action Ireland, developed with Mental Health Ireland, has published guidelines to help people understand the risk of turning to alcohol at this time.
Spokesman Eunan McKinney says it's important to remind the off-trade that they have a responsible role to play at a time of national crisis.
"Jurisdictions such as Australian states, and New Zealand, who experienced a rush in alcohol off-sales, moved to put in place greater restrictions on volumes purchased, mindful of the impact and trauma that may arise. This issue needs to be continuously monitored by government," he says.
"During times like this, there might be an inclination to drink more heavily and more frequently as we reach out for something to numb the tension.
"Unfortunately, this leads to a corresponding rise in anxiety, depression and irritability. Relationships may be also be coming under pressure as the drinking is increasing," says McKinney.
He points to the HSE's recommended weekly low-risk alcohol guidelines. These are fewer than 11 standard drinks for women or 17 standard drinks for men, with drinks spread out over the week and including two to three alcohol-free days a week. A standard drink would be a half glass of beer or a small (100ml) glass of wine.
At times of great stress and particularly when Covid-19 is to the forefront of everyone's minds, the organisation is urging people to look at coping mechanisms other than opening a bottle.
"If possible, we should include activities in our routine, such as walking, running, cycling or gardening. If we spend time in green, natural space, this can benefit both our mental and physical well-being. It can improve mood, reduce feelings of stress or anger, and help us relax.
"These are healthy coping mechanisms that, if fostered now, will endure long after this situation is over," says McKinney. "Alcohol can pose a definite risk to our mental health and can make the symptoms of mental health conditions worse. However, your mood can improve when you cut down or stop drinking," he says.
The organisation says it's also concerned about the well-being of the estimated 200,000 children already living with parental alcohol misuse and the additional pressures of everyone being stuck at home.
According to Bobby Smyth, a child and adolescent psychiatrist who works with young people with drug and alcohol problems, more home drinking leads to more rows and disagreements between adults. While Smyth says that in the current situation where people are at home anxious and drinking more, existing problems will be amplified.
He says everyone is under stress and children learn how to cope from the adults in their lives. "What kids need now are competent, caring adults who are switched on."
Addiction counsellor Austin Prior believes that because the social pressures in our lives, like having to go to work and get the kids out to school, are gone, it may feel like normal rules don't apply.
"It's easy to open a bottle of wine and that's where the habitual side of things comes in. Sometimes addiction starts as a habit. Maybe people need to look at what else they could do," he says.
Addiction counsellor and psychotherapist Marion Rackard says people can be left feeling powerless when the anchors of their job and other social engagements go, but turning to alcohol is not the answer. Developing and maintaining family routines, looking after your mental health, finding other ways to relax and treat yourself at this time are all important, she says. "If you're feeling anxious or angry - it's really not ideal to drink on top of not feeling good. You're only exacerbating the feelings," she adds.
Businesswoman Samantha Kelly, founder of online group Women's Inspire Network, and a recovering alcoholic, says while the social distancing measures can be difficult for people in recovery, help is only a click away.
"As a recovering alcoholic, it's my social life now to attend regular meetings. It's how I keep in touch and help others, too. Even now, after 11 years of sobriety, it is important for me to be able to share my experience of strength and hope with others who might be suffering," she says.
Kelly says there are people hosting meetings globally that you can be part of if you're in recovery, and reaching out to the AA is a good first step to finding the support you need.
