I’ve written before about Handy Heidi — my lovely and talented sister-in-law — and her magic paint brush. Her skills extend beyond painting, however, to also include sewing. And in yesterday’s mail I received the latest fruits of her labors: my very own coronavirus mask, courtesy of Handy Heidi’s magic sewing machine. Thanks, Heidi!
It’s a sturdy mask, in suitably sober colors, as befits its sober purpose. I know that some people have opted for more brightly colored masks, but that’s not where my head is at, frankly. If I need to wear a mask on my walk to work or around the office, I don’t want it to look like I’m celebrating. And the black on one side, brown on the other side color scheme will match my boring lawyer suits.
I’m not keen on wearing a mask, but if that’s what it takes to open Ohio and America for work again, I’m all for it.
