It was one of those retrospective facepalm moments ... I should have watched the PM's latest coronavirus update. I should not have thought I could "get the gist" on social media later.
Instead of distilling the message, which frankly, seemed more positive than not, it was all about people shouting. People, on soapboxes, shouting.
So (ever so quickly it's Friday after all) in a nutshell: Prime Minister Scott Morrison is confident coronavirus won't over-run our health system.
If measures stayed in place, he said, and intensive care capacity was boosted as planned with extra ventilators, Australia would "get through this".
"The trajectory is promising, it's encouraging," he said. "But there are no guarantees. This virus will write its own rules."
Can we take that as a positive? Can we take a moment to genuinely reflect on the hard work that has gone into getting us there? Yes, let's do that.
But there also were many moments of shining optimism in our communities - all at a socially acceptable distance, of course.
If you have a weekend half as good as Harry, you'll be doing well.
