The Great Mask Debate

Really people? Or just those of you who think it is your right to NOT wear a mask. Why is this even up for debate?

It is a sad situation when some people are just thinking of themselves. What kind of a society has America become? Stopping the spread of any infectious disease is so simple. Wear a mask. Wash your hands. Practice social distancing. Tom Hanks said it so well in his interview. For all of those people who think Dr. Fauci is part of the problem, at least you can believe Tom Hanks. I mean, like, yeah.

The disadvantages of wearing a mask? Well, it kind of pulls on the ears and makes your ears look bigger. Advantage, you can show off those really pretty earrings you’ve been itching to wear.

Disadvantage – I can’t breathe. My doctor told me because of my breathing issues, I shouldn’t wear one. Sigh – I have asthma and breathing problems, yet I am able to wear a mask. Makes the time in stores much shorter which involves less spending which makes my husband happy.

Disadvantage – it messes up my lipstick. Advantage – wear lip balm. Oh, and choose something that smells nice. At least when it rubs off on the mask, you’ll be smelling cucumber or melon or cinnamon, not disgusting lipstick crap.

Disadvantage – it messes up my makeup. Advantage – highlight your eyes. My skills at eye makeup have improved and the mask gives that mysterious “Come hither” look.

Can’t think of any other disadvantages but here are more advantages. The mask hides all those silly chin and mustachey hairs that tend to crop up. Because my hairs are blonde, I don’t always see them and it takes my husband looking at me and saying, “Wow! That’s a really long one.” before I pull the tweezers out. When someone farts around you, you have a few more seconds to make your escape. I am allergic to dust, so masks are great for filtering out those particles. Masks can be such a fashion statement. Get a variety to go with your wardrobe. Casual wear. Sports wear. Evening wear.

But seriously. Do everyone around you a favor and wear a mask. Just such a simple thing to ask of everyone. I wish there would be a contest. Whoever wears a mask the most, gets one year free eats at your favorite fast food place. Man, I can just hear the rush now.
