I was talking to someone on the phone a few days ago and we got into a side discussion about masks. I told her that I hate wearing them. It was hard to tell her attitude.

Then she told me that she had recently taken her 3-year-old grandson into a fast food restaurant in another state. When they got to the door, her grandson realized that he didn’t have his mask and he panicked. She reassured him that he could borrow one of hers.

Then she told me that basically as long as he can remember, he’s had to wear a mask when going out. She said that he basically regards it as part of his wardrobe.

That’s scary and tragic. How long will it take him to recover? And what has he missed in the meantime?
