So you know how everybody always wonders who those people are that sit in their cars alone wearing masks?
I spoke to somebody – a retired college professor – who told me that she recently “misbehaved” by pulling her mask down in the car. It was so hot that the mask was really getting in the way. She felt bad about it but felt she had to do it to continue driving safely. Obviously, this means she always drives in a mask.
But get this. As this person told me this, we were both unmasked, sitting together in a cafe. As we said goodbye, she insisted on giving me a hug. She knows I’m unvaccinated and always unmasked.
I have a feeling that people have completely outsourced their decision-making capacity to the CNN and WashPo. It’s obvious that you are more likely to get infected from a live person you sit next to for 3 hours in a small room than from being alone in a car. This cannot be in dispute.
I just find it very disturbing. It’s one thing when a person washes hands obsessively to get rid of germs. And it’s a completely different thing when she obsessively draws balloons everywhere to get rid of germs.
