Weirdest thing

Saturday, May 15, 2021

I was 25 miles away from my home, at a grocery store with my mask on and someone says hello. It is friends from LA, 300 plus miles away who happened to be visiting the area. Had a brief chat that brightened my day and cant help but wonder what a small world it is. Also, I would never have recognized them with the masks. Masks have stollen a means of communication from us. I always look at demeanor and peoples expressions and now we see masks.

It was a nice surprise on a Friday night. I was in that area to go to Lowes to pick up a patio chair. Drove out there and guess what they didnt have it either. Checked their little hand held computer and sent me back to the store 5 minutes from my home, the store that sent me to them!!!! Oh well, it was fantastic to see my friends. Never did get my chair

    Small world! I am looking forward to when we will no longer need masks. I miss sharing smiles.

    Our mask mandate just lifted two days ago, So it will be nice to recognize people again! May even start wearing a little makeup again!

    I have problems recognizing people with masks. Until they speak. Will be so glad when these days are over.

    Masks take away that visual communication. Can't see the smile or any of those features. However, like you, I did still recognize an old colleague, with the mask, by looking at their eyes. So maybe we will adjust.
