Mask up!

I’ve seen these very fancy masks sold by an expensive brand, adorned in pearls. They even have pearls strung on the ear elastics. Maybe I have extremely sensitive ear-backs, but large, hard beads are the last thing I need around this appendage…

When my kids wear masks they always end up with a giant spit-soaked target in a matter of minutes. I can’t help wonder what is healthier for those around them, for those particles to fly free in the air, or for them to accumulate in this wet, disgusting way…

As hard as those MAGAs fight against wearing a mask is as hard as my 2-year-old daughter fights to wear them. For her birthday she finally got a set of Frozen masks, all her own. I think she was more excited about this gift than her adorable playhouse her father spent 3 hours assembling…

Air travel was already a Xanax-popping activity for me. Honestly, the world has just now caught up to my germ-cleaning practices. I’ve always wiped down my tray table and seats with Lysol-years before this product became liquid gold. The one good thing to come out of this pandemic is that I’ll now be able to wear a mask on airplanes-like all the Asian travelers I’ve always been jealous of-without feeling like everyone is judging me.

I'm a history-PhD-turned-stay-at-home-mom of three. When I'm not microwaving Trader Joe's meals for my kids, breaking up fights and wiping butts, I like to paint and write. To cope with the endless hours I'm spending with my son doing virtual school, I've abandoned my gouache paints for the more portable, less messy tried but true, paper and ink. While he learns to read to 20 floating heads on his screen, I sit on a tiny chair, at a tiny table pretending to be a productive adult.
