Just thinking out loud here! 😉
I’m sure many of you have thought of some of the below benefits of wearing your face masks when you’re outside your homes. While we were made to wear various types of masks for more than a year now, I found additional benefits of wearing them, besides saving people from being infected with the famous but most hated virus of the century.
So, here, enjoy the additional benefits of wearing your face masks:
When I was younger, and had special friends, I would wish there was a way no one could identify us when we were together. The other day while I was walking around with my cousin, we saw a young couple parked in the middle of the deserted street talking to each other, with their masks on. My cousin casually asked me why they were wearing masks when they were already physically close to each other. TONG! I realized that we couldn’t identify them!
Whether you are a grumpy person or not, in life, you are forced to smile at people (as annoying as they may be) just so that you don’t get a bad reputation. Well, masks allow you to ignore such people and live your life in peace. If at all they recognize you, you can always blame their masks, right? Haha!
Opening your mouth and yawning in front of someone is disrespectful. But, a couple of Sundays ago, during an early morning mass at Church, I saw the lady beside me suddenly lift her chin, breathe in and then breathe out. I thought she was having a heart attack but, then I realized that she was only yawning. She yawned her heart out. TONG! Another point for the mask! God will forgive her, but people won’t.
My friend just opened a boutique in Bangalore and I was amused to see that, for almost every outfit, she had matching masks. So, it’s not only your shoes, hair accessory and purse anymore! Another plus point for the fashionistas, right?
Imagine you have woken up late and must rush to drop your child to school that is a few miles away. Don’t worry, thanks to the mask, no one but you will be lucky to smell your breath. So, without being conscious about making a negative impression, you can quickly drop your child and no one will know. But, don’t blame anyone but yourself if your dentist yells at you for avoiding dental care. That’s on you! 😉
While living this suffocating life outside the house, we must find a little fun to get us through the day, must’ve we? And, no, I’ve not gotten used to wearing a mask but I just observe people and have weird thoughts every time I’m out. Hope you enjoyed me thinking aloud here! Have a lovely day!
Tell me your thoughts…
