At the beginning of the Stay at Home directives, DH and I came to terms with our situation:
- We are in the most vulnerable age group. I am 9 years younger, and at a healthy weight.
- Clorox wipes and hand sanitizer aren't readily available to consumers who didn't stockpile.
- No matter what mask we would wear, it wouldn't protect us from others very well.
So we stay at home and wash our hands a lot. If we need groceries, I shop for them once a week or every other week, and only during senior hours. Now that masks are mandatory (even if ineffective), I wear a mask made from a t-shirt I should have discarded years ago.
This past Thursday, I went to Costco during the senior hour, and several people said, "You can't come in, this time is reserved for seniors!" I replied, "I'm 71, do you want to see my driver's license?"
A little later, I entered BJ's, for my Kale, also during the senior hours. Again, "this time is reserved for seniors!" I replied, "I'm 71, do you want to see my driver's license?"
Yes, I may look young for my age, but the best thing about the mask is that it hides most of my wrinkles...
