Oh, my mask! Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you go…
Jim Goes to Albertsons
I didn’t wear a mask at the grocery store today. Not an intentional nose-thumbing at the Establishment. I simply forgot to put one on, as I have STILL not been conditioned to automatically do it yet. I literally have to remind myself about putting one on, every single time. My distractions over our impending move to another state culminated in being halfway through my excursion when I realized my “error.” But then I looked around. While we were still in the minority, there were still a goodly number of us not wearing them. Maybe my fellow “rebels” had been vaccinated. Maybe, like me, they were forgetful. Maybe they’ve decided that we’ve been misled from the beginning. Still others may have been saying, “it’s been over a year, Enough is ENOUGH!” Ar any rate, we are (too slowly, IMHO) going back to normal. It is a good thing.
