The Advantages of Wearing a Mask
Happy Holidays to all of you! What a year this has been. One of the things that we are all going to remember about 2020 (and going into 2021) are the pros and cons of wearing masks.
As I was sitting down getting ready to write this newsletter, and a couple other newsletters, I had an interesting idea. What are the advantages of wearing a mask? I posed the question to my staff and I got a lot of replies. Let me share with you some of these “benefits”.
1. You keep others safe.
2. Women do not have to put on makeup under the mask.
3. Men do not have to shave.
4. If I cut myself shaving, no one needs to know it.
5. You don’t have to smile as much.
6. You don’t have to worry about something being in your teeth.
7. You can travel incognito easier, and can go into places without being so dressed up.
