Early Gas Stations:
(I found a few more!)
I have been thinking that the average mask worn by us Covid-19 prisoners is nothing more than a feel good effort. Even I know that the paint mask filters out more than a cotton mask.
I was glad to see that our friend Lisa over in G-town who can crochet a wedding suit for a red bird or a tux for Godzilla, knows that the ‘mask’ she can crochet is a ‘mask cover’, i.e. Decoration or uniqueness to be worn over a REAL mask.
Most face covers today are NOT woven tight enough, nor do they fit tight enough to filter out MOST germs, especially the VIRUS the world is so worried about. I smile when I see folks wearing the mask covering only their mouth and breathing thru their nose.
I wore my paint masks until I ran out of them. Then I tried wearing some Woody & Anna Mae were kind enough to send, but I cannot tie things behind my head well, so I had to give those up. I do want my binding lines to be behind my head because my ears are already busy holding my hearing devices. Then I bought the recommended ones. Lately I bought a pack of black wranglers abd painted a smile on one. Oh yeah, Lisa sent us what she called ‘mask tie extenders’ that hook into the loops on masks and goes behind your head.
As I stated, we do wear masks. But there are things you just cannot do wearing a mask:
You cannot eat a Klondike Bar.
Blow your nose.
Lick your finger to open a plastic bag in the produce section. (I guess that is good).
Smell a rose.
Check to see if your tongue is purple.
Smoke a cigarette.
Sing worth a hoot.
Steal a KISS!
Stick out your tongue at someone.
Put on lipstick (Honest, I haven’t tried that one!)
Get a drink of water.
BUT I do wear the mask because our leaders feel it is best for the country, so I comply. I know you haven’t made trips back to your car when headed for the grocery store, because you forgot yours, as I have a hundred times. LOL
I am no expert by any stretch of the imagination, but some things we do today doesn’t follow common LOGIC.
What else can't you do while wearing a mask?
I know this virus is REAL and people die from it, I am not belittling that. I just think smarter people than I could come up with more logical procedures to fight something like this.
PS 2: I get pretty sick when our political leaders ON BOTH SIDES of the aisle make a football of the nation’s welfare (Or so it appears to me)!!!!!!!
