Remember the movie AIRPLANE where catastrophe upon catastrophe kept happening and Lloyd Bridges would intermittently pop up on screen to declare:
“Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit smoking..”
then “looks like I picked the wrong week to quit drinking..”
and then “looks like I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue!”
Loved that movie.. so funny!
Made me think about bad habits and how so often it’s a crisis (often medical) that forces us to come face to face with them.
And speaking of faces..
The “jury” is out as to how much protection face masks provide against the corona virus, but interestingly enough, one doc said “if a mask keeps you from touching your nose and mouth, it’s worth wearing one.”
(The average person touches their face over two dozen times an hour.)
So in essence, a mask’s most valuable function is breaking you of the habit of touching your face; one of the primary ways that this virus enters a body.
The mask’s purpose would be to protect you…from you.
And don’t we all need a little protection from our own selves at times?
