The internet bytes it

One mask or two

So shall I distance

No touch, no talk, just eye contact

MA, he's looking at me

I think he's blinking Morse code

He's so paranoid he's afraid to touch himself

Eye make-up sales are up 345%

Overheard at the dog park:

"My master's the one with the blue mask"

The cat's still peeking from under the couch

I followed the arrows at the grocery store

it took me two hours to get to the check out registers

TABLE FOR ONE is the most popular restaurant in town

Memo to the country "THE ELECTION IS OVER, MOVE ON"

No one cares if your sox match

Answer to the question of "mind over matter"

"if you don't mind, it don't matter"

I got my first dose of the vaccine

does that mean I only have to wear one mask?

Good sarcasm. I won't give my opinion about the whole thing here. I'm unpopular with it enough on FB!

John, a great poem and so true, it is a difficult time, oh yes some of us girls wear masks to match our outfits and play up our eyes with make up to enhance our eyes, we don't care about lipstick, its all about the eyes. The grocery store well that is just a nightmare, like cattle being moved to their final destination, have to learn how to make your eyes do the talking, almost got a fine for removing my mask to drink takeout coffee today, a warning given instead, I think we will be wearing masks for a very long time _Constance

ah the subtle nuances of communication in the coronal age. I often start making baying sounds as I meander through the ropes and barriers. it could be a case of "doing so much good that it did not good"

Is that a banana in your mask or are you just happy to see me?

meanwhile the superbowl ballers were spitting in each others' faces cos apparently they 'all' tested negative... it is getting quite ridiculous.. I hope I don't have to get vaccinated to go out of country..that would suck big time cos I hate needles piercing holes thru my intact skin I wonder if lipstick sales are down? lol :)
