No Great Mystery

a mask
not for glamour:
Diego de la Vega, much
better known as the legendary "Zorro,"
wore that mask simply because his ears stuck out too far and he was embarrassed by them.*

*From his biog., by Isabel Allende.

I am smiling, wondering if the part about Zorro’s ears was straight out of your imagination Beth.
