Mask. Cher-less.

by Marinka on April 30, 2009

I have the best friends. They really look out for me.

Like the other day, John told me that we have to go get masks to protect ourselves against the swine flu. He read up on it and people who wore masks during the SARS outbreak were thirteen times more likely to survive, so with that kind of math on our side, we got some masks. I wanted to try them out on the bus ride home, but he didn’t. Something about looking stupid.

If there’s one thing I know about looking stupid, is that it doesn’t come naturally to everyone, so you have to practice. So I did. As a public service to you people, of course. Because I’m all about helping others.

Oh, and for the sake of full disclosure and transparency: I did not receive any compensation or products for this post.( Tamiflu, call me!) ok, please click on that Tamiflu link and check out that fluish woman’s sink. I love it so much, because it’s like all the dishes are totally cleaned, but they’re just piled in the sink because her family is brain damaged or something. And I love the expression that the little girl has. It’s like “MOM! You got that stupid flu on purpose!!! This is why I like dad’s girlfriend better!!!!!”

And it’s a good thing that I tried it out because the masks have defects. First of all, do not underestimate the looking stupid thing. Second, how are you supposed to enjoy snacks and beverages? I think they should have a hole in there for nutrients. Third of all, I am very worried about the lipstick industry. Will women still buy it? Will they be the next needing a government bailout?

Other than that–perfect! Well, breathing is a little tough, especially if you’re claustrophobic and don’t like something covering up your air holes. Maybe I can look into getting a chloroform scented one to help me relax?
