Default FUN WITH THE MASK

I went up to the drug store to pick up a new prescription. I took along one of the masks my sister made for me to wear for the first time. My sister really put a lot of planning and engineering into this mask (she's a mechanical engineer). It has a lot of pleats in it which I assume increases the surface area for catching respiratory expulsions.

When I stated my date of birth at the prescription counter, I noticed that I was hearing a reverberation in my voice which to my wiseacre mind sounded like Darth Vader. This was too good to pass up. When I was at the front cash register, I told the cashier how the mask made my voice reverberate and then I did the classic Star Wars line, "Luke, I am your father." The cashier was practically rolling on the floor laughing.

James Earl Jones would have been proud of me.

Great! We need some laughs in all this garbage. The Force was with you!

I'd love to try that. I've been going to the same pharmacy for 40+ years, and the people there are like family.
Would your sister sell me one of those masks?

Unfortunately, my sister was using leftover scrap material, so I don't think there are any more.

Sounds like a regular cottage industry now. My friend's wife has been making them for a while. If you have to wear one may as well have a custom one.

The pleats increase the surface area to make it easier to breath.

Best,
Rick

Figuring this is going to last a while, I bought masks from a company in California that makes lacrosse equipment ordinarily, but is now producing facial coverings.

I was the height of 2020 fashion when I stopped on the way home from work last night to pick up dinner...1980s hair and a facemask...I looked vaguely like the human fly!
