Unmasking

In 2020 a mask covering one's mouth and nose was mandatory in public. Masks made it almost impossible for me to breath, while wearing one I felt light-headed and nauseous. I feared I would pass out from oxygen deprivation, fall off of my electric cart at the grocery store, and break a shoulder, a hip, or my head. That could be the end of me, so no more masks for me, I have unmasked. I shopped maskless at two grocery stores this week and not a peep out of anyone. To the contrary, did I see admiring, hopeful glances?


Mask is "a covering for all or part of the face, worn as a disguise, or to amuse or terrify other people." - random internet dictionary. AKA obedience mask, face diaper, training burqa, muzzle, burglar disguise, or "it’s what people wear to not get the coronavirus" as defined by the sheeple at Urban Dictionary.

Call me a scofflaw but after suffocating for over a year under my obedience mask I took it off for good.
