I just found out that my city has mandated that all persons over the age of two have to wear a mask. Here are ten best reasons why we all should wear a mask during the Coronavirus pandemic.

1–You can accessorize your mask with your outfit.

I’m still waiting for the day that they design masks for the pool.

2–You can chew gum obnoxiously.

Or grind your teeth or stick your tongue out.

3–You can wear bright green lipstick.

Or any color really.

4–You don’t need breath mints when going out in public.

You can eat as much garlic as you dare.

5–You suddenly look like everyone else. There is unity in conformity.

In a world where we are often torn apart by the color of our skin, it is nice to share this commonality.

6–You can talk to yourself.

Just don’t talk out loud or others will know what you are doing.

7–It’s a new place to hide your money.

I mean, c’mon, who would think to look for money behind your mask?

8–You can hide that nasty pimple on your chin or cheek.

No more make-up to cover up!

9–You can look at a person’s eyes when speaking to them.

Don’t stare at their mouth, or any other body part.

10–You can be safe!

And keep your family, friends, and neighbors safe.
