    Yep, I get new masks everyday. Only wear the N95s when at work though.

    How about now?

    Been a couple months, wearing clean hand-made for 8+ hours workdays.


    Don't like it but doesn't phase me anymore, employees and customers have been great.

    I got a bunch of hand made cloth masks from Etsy...supporting local people. Avoiding buying those pre-made masks from china.

    Got ones with nautical or tropical designs. Or...like one for my daughter, has a Nike swoosh with a Sloth on it and "Eventually do it" saying. (cuz she loves sloths)

    I'm used to them. Sometimes even climb back in my truck and drive away..and a while later realize I still have my mask on my face (cuz I no longer really notice it). If it's not sunny out. If it's sunny out, I'll put my sunglasses on which will fog up with my next exhale...so yeah I'll then notice I still have my mask on and remove it.

    I wear a cloth mask when entering enclosed crowded spaces. I've been trying to do that since this started. Most people weren't doing it until recently in my part of Florida. Since a month ago, new daily cases increased 10-fold, so most people seem to grasp the issue and wear masks inside now, also it has been mandated to wear them indoors in places where you can't social-distance.

    We made a few masks on our own but tying them is really a little bit annoying. If it is very hot outside or I am on a long train ride I wear disposable masks.

    Second nature at this point.

    Sucks but pretty common sense and all but normal at this point.

    Then you got the maskholes:

    It's not about your politics people. Never has been, never will be.

    Although the wife and I are at the point to where they're 2nd nature, we still keep 4-5 disposable masks in a baggie in each of the car's glove compartments in case we leave without ours.

    The people who are trying to make this political are unbelievable. There is no common-sense reason not to wear one (while out in public) at this point in time. I get a kick when I see someone on the news saying it's their "Constitutional" right not to wear one.

    People will forget what you said... and people will forget what you did... but people will never forget how you made them feel.

    I bet there's still people out there who cover themselves when they sneeze (remember when that used to be a thing, lol).

    I wear a simple cloth hand made mask when I am at work or in public, don't the rest of the time. Just hoping for a quicker end to this than a long, dragged out one.
