Love my mask

The first time I wore a mask, it was a non-medical mask from the dollar store. I bought ten, for ten dollars, thinking it would last the required number of wearings for this virus. I was sure a vaccine would be found. I thought about the mask all the time and how little I enjoyed it because it left a bad taste and smell in my mouth, but as this situation dragged on I finally found a couple of cloth masks that are easy to wear and thanks to my laundry detergent they smell fresh as well as covering my mouth and nose while remaining breathable. On short trips and longer ones, it is doing its job making me feel protected, isolated and safe, as crazy as that may sound. My mask is now my "friend" but two weeks ago I could not stand wearing one. I still lower it whenever possible to inhale fresh air through my nose, but it gives me a comforting feeling to wear it, much like a favorite blanket can give a feeling of cosy security.

I also like the added warmth of the mask as the weather turns colder.

B.S. (bovine secretions) ... it is real and there have been plagues throughout history on petre dish Earth; so the mask is needful. Ya know what else is needful? Build up your natural immune system with positive thinking and positive foods. Wean off those packaged fried grease chemi B.S.

I like them for giving a feeling of cosy anonymity in this world full of cameras.

I would have stopped biking when the temperature dipped below 10 degrees this year, but with the mask, my nose doesn't burn with cold air and turn into a popsicle. Also protects from exhaust fumes. Doesn't all have to be about the virus.

Wearing a mask means "smizing" is back in the conversation.
