"On the days where enough has gone right in my tiny sliver of our grim shared reality to dredge up the now-nostalgic emotion of insouciance, I'll make it a block or two from my apartment before realizing, oh right, the pandemic didn't end, and I forgot a mask. I run back, embarrassed and deflated. This happens, on average, once every 10 days.

Evidently, I'm one of the lucky ones because the momentary panic of masklessness only makes its irritating little cameos during my waking hours. Some of you, it seems, have been forgetting to wear a mask in your Bleeped text dreams…"

My dreams are all pre-mask, and contentedly so.

No, but I do occasionally revert to my pre-pandemic practices and almost forget to put one on every now and then.

I keep one in my pocket at all times, and a spare in the car trunk, just in case now, which is ridiculous, but a sign of the post-apocalyptic times, I guess.

No, haven't worn my canister work mask in a month and never had a paper or cloth one.

Pandemic? what pandemic? I thought that was all over!

Didn't wear a mask then, still don't.

Mask? I'm still having the dream where I forgot my pants!

Dreams? So, are you all actually sleeping?

I dug out a pair of Groucho glasses (missing the hairy parts), drew a 'stache on a mask, and have been wearing that. No complaints, even from store managers, lots of people take pics, some avoid eye contact (though kids often stare, and I'm sure ask uncomfortable questions of their parental units later… ;-)

I really should start wearing an fsociety mask, though… ;-)

Pulling two dream threads together, I do have a mask on, but not my pants.

It's classified …

"a pair of Groucho glasses … (though kids often stare, "

Not today, though. A couple of kids in a shopping cart broke out laughing, as did their mother when she saw it. It's nice to see the very young generation at least have an inkling of Groucho Marx… ;-)

This is the recurring mask dream I've been having for years: link
