I am wearing a mask because it is mandated. I know all the scientific things about wearing the mask; read it all. I differ in my opinions about wearing a mask and other things in general but I understand it is considered more safe to be wearing a mask around others than not wearing a mask and because it is mandated I wear a mask but I rip it off the second I can. So now before I go anywhere I ask this question "is where I'm going mask worthy?" Meaning is it worth donning a mask that I would prefer not to wear just to go to where I want to go. And as a side note I still have not gotten "into the groove" of wearing a mask. I can't tell you how many times I've had to walk back to the car to get a mask before entering a building/restaurant/store.
So last week after seeing a YouTube segment about a decadent chocolate dessert someone made both hubby and me said later in the day "we got to go to Cerreta's". It is a local candy company. That was mask worthy.
Driving by an estate sale the sign said "masks required." That was not mask worthy for me though it would be interesting to see what was offered and also if the estate sale is inside the house as it sometimes is, I like to look at the layout of other houses. But in this case not mask worthy.
Going to get my hair cut last week, yep mask worthy. My hair was longer than it had been in a bit and was driving me crazy as I don't like the hair on my neck during hot summer months.
Going to church? YES definitely mask worthy. Our church has not reopened yet with no plans on when they will reopen. They originally were going to reopen August 2nd but then our numbers went crazy in July so they postponed it. FOR ME the online experience was not cutting it so we decided to look for a church that was meeting in person. Found one, liked the message we listened to online and went in person 2 weeks ago. LOVED IT. Just the feel of being together with fellow believers praising and worshiping and hearing a sermon in person instead of through a video screen was fantastic. Again FOR ME it was definitely more fulfilling than viewing online. So yes mask worthy. We are still considering whether we will go back to our old church when/if it ever reopens and are praying about it.
Going out to eat and restaurants asking you to wear a mask until seated and then put the mask on when moving around the restaurant is mask worthy.
Local gyms can reopen again after being closed for about 2 months. Wearing a mask while exercising on the treadmill (it is required in the majority of the gyms) is definitely not mask worthy.
Next month is our anniversary. Its a milestone one so we want to celebrate it grandly. Been thinking of going away for a few days and trying to come up with ideas of what to do and where to go. In talking we had to see what was opened (for instance we like to do wine tasting in Temecula California and some wineries aren't doing tastings just sales while others are doing tastings outside) and then we had to determine if what we wanted to do was mask worthy. So far we are coming up empty but I'm sure we will figure out some place to celebrate that is definitely mask worthy.
This is just me, but just asking what do you consider mask worthy?
