Our supermarket dropped the requirement for a mask but I still wear one and not for health reasons..

I don't have to put any make up on my old, wrinkly face! I just have to touch the gray out of my eyebrows and I'm good to go.

So I'm gonna play this one out for as long as I can...

1. No joke. Got to enjoy wearing my mask. My forehead and eyes look younger.

2. Another plus for wearing a mask...

I don't have to wax my ladystache.

3. It's terrible what we go through just to look decent (or I do). I don't pluck my eyebrows and no

stache but age has given me underchin hair I'd rather not think about...

4. Some years ago, I was stopped at the main intersection...

...in our smallish town in one of the far northwest suburbs of Chicago. I looked to my right and saw the woman in that car looking into her rear view mirror while plucking chin hairs.

That is something I donít enjoy watching myself do for myself, and certainly something I would NEVER do in public. Eewww!

5. I just go once a month to my nail place...have a mani or pedi and a little wax. It's relaxing...they

give you extra time on the foot massage (but you pay for it). It's nice when you feel stressed.

...every day if I could afford to do that.

11. I got this and it's brilliant for

just that purpose. Easy peasy chin fuzz/hairs gone in a moment. So much easier than tweezing.

I was disappointed that I spent the money on it.

No more waxing bills for me.

7. Haha!

I have an old, wrinkly face, and never wore make-up.
I wear the mask still, especially around more than 3 people. I trust me, don't know who to trust otherwise.

27. I know what you mean about not knowing who to trust.

It seems to me that people who didn't want to wear masks are probably the same people who don't want to get the vaccine. I have no faith in an 'honor system' for people who are not vaccinated to wear masks.

I put on a mask at Costco recently, just so nobody mistook me for a Republican.As a white male of a certain age, itís not an uncommon mix-up.

14. On the other hand, there are stores in my area (NE NY) that now say those who are vaccinated

No longer have to wear masks to enter. Well, I don't know who's vaccinated or is just a maskhole, so I still wear mine - and I'm afraid I'll be mistaken for an anti-vaxxer.

I say who cares.

But when I took my brother to get his at the local state run site last month, they were nice enough to give both of us stickers.

29. Exact opposite here in W Mass

Very high vaccination rate. The few people who have been anti-vax are vocal and have been kicked out of many stores in my area. Vaxxed people i know are ALL continuing to mask bc of the jerks we KNOW haven't been vaxxed but won't mask now that there is no mandate. To recap, in my area the unvaxxed are not masking and the vaxxed are...

24. I am. I'm still wearing my mask.

Last I looked, only 56% of my county has been vaccinated which is really unacceptable since there are so many vaccine sites now, pharmacies, pharmacies in grocery stores, and both a county and a state vaccine site, many of which now take walk-ins. I got mine at CVS back in February and March, had to drive to the closest one offering appointments which was about a half hour south of where I live. I didn't mind in the least, I was just grateful to finally get it. My friend who teaches had to drive across the entire state!

I'm more comfortable wearing a mask in big-box stores. I also don't want to look like a Republican.

13. I now shave once a week. I went to the supermarket yesterday, and when I got home my wife said....

..."you went out like THAT?" I said, "it was covered by my mask!"

Like you, I'm going to ride this one out.

Ask most old, wrinkly faced men.

18. Anyone else have this happen?

My sense of smell has blossomed in the past year and a half. This can be a mixed blessing, of course, but always better to have improved senses than debilitated ones. I can't imagine any other reason than wearing a mask every minute I've been outside my apartment.

I'ma keep wearin' it.

... be sure to keep your teeth brushed under there. I've had that... problem... as a coffee drinker.
