I could possibly be the only human on planet Earth who rejoiced when the mandate came down from the Surgeon General saying everyone should wear a mask when they have to go out in public.
That’s right – rejoiced.
Mask-wearing is a blessing when you’re missing front teeth and your “cosmetic appliance” is not comfortable. Not only people can’t see your gaping maw, but they can’t hear that you have a major lisp when you speak.
There are other perks when we wear masks: No makeup needed, just some mascara.
You save a lot of money on gasoline. Going to meetings on ZOOM means no more rushing out the door to get somewhere on time.
Stormy weather? No big deal, you are only walking from your living room to your den. No snow to shovel. No need to bundle up then unbundle when you get there.
Nine months after my teeth were fixed (this week), I broke off my canine tooth on the other side this time. My dentist is on vacation for two weeks, so no appliance will be made until October. Sigh. And it is starting to hurt…
I just heard on the news that ‘they’ are making masks required again. Whew… Just in time!
