Day 34

The Latest Fashion Accessory

So, we’re all wearing masks now. And where once there were no masks, now they are everywhere. I’m not talking about the medical-grade N95 masks that are still in short supply, but the ones the general public should wear when out and about.

I knew that masks were a “thing” when I couldn’t figure out where to keep my own tiny supply of them. Should I keep them in my lingerie drawer or with my gloves and scarves? I actually spent a solid five minutes on the topic before finally concluding I needed a separate, dedicated space for them.

Now a friend’s birthday is coming up. Asked what she wants as a present, she gave a very specific reply. She wants a gift card so she can design face masks to coordinate with her outfits! My friend, a huge Star Wars fan, already tried to order one a la Darth Vader but couldn’t. Apparently, it violated copyright laws.

Yes, face masks are a thing. And they’re going to be in even in the new “normal” — whatever and whenever that is.

And that is about as much as I can think about on Day 34. I hope you had a peaceful weekend.
