Fun Friday...Mask Missives
Masks have been on most everyone’s minds (or faces) for months. I have a few thoughts now that I’ve been wearing one for several months.
Because of my allergies and asthma, my initial tolerance for wearing a mask was about 20 minutes. Now, I can wear one long enough to have my hair colored or for a doctor’s visit.
So what about masks...
Many of my female friends have mentioned that they have saved a lot of money because they don’t feel the need to wear makeup under a mask. That’s especially true of lipstick.
I don’t know about anyone else, but these eyes don’t leave the house without a little assistance!
Burglars were onto something. There have been people who have done things they would not ordinarily do under the guise of anonymity.
Now we can buy those 5 gallons of ice cream and no one will know it’s us!
Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde…
This is my favorite. Remember the fun Halloween parties where you had to wear a mask and/or dress as a character? We had fun because we got to be or play at being who we weren’t.
Maybe who you become isn’t totally different from the real you...just an enhanced version. We had a server, Cookie, who was a delight... upbeat, bubbly, and just what we needed. Her mask was similar to the one I’m wearing above. I have no idea if this is her true persona but I have a feeling that the mask helped her be who she felt like being.
Masks are wonderfully paradoxical in this way: while they may hide the physical reality, they can show us how a person wants to be seen. Joanna Scott
