Welcome to my regular Friday song/tune day, ladies and gentlemen, where I pick a piece of music that reflects my mood or the times, to share with you.
My brain is working overtime, but still I am so confused. I’ve got more questions than answers.
Here are some questions for the Aussies out there. Who is too embarrassed to wear a face mask to prevent the spread of infection? If you are too embarrassed, then why? Who is too embarrassed to get tested for Covid-19 if you’ve got a “sniffle”. If you are embarrassed, why?
One of my peccadilloes is silly beanies/hats. I have a small collection of them and like to wear one occasionally as a reminder not to take myself too seriously. Like is probably an over-statement. It embarrasses the heck out of me, but I still do it. My friends are horrified too when I front up to our brunch dates wearing one. Tell me, Aussies, what’s more embarrassing, wearing a silly beanie or wearing a protective face mask in public and why?
The pharmacist was so grateful that I wore my mask the other day because she told me that she is constantly confronted by maskless people who fail to keep an appropriate distance from her. The young vet nurse was also very appreciative of my mask-wearing and attempt to keep a safe distance. She has been shopping for her parents and she wants to keep them safe while continuing to work to keep our pets healthy.
Meanwhile, police in the Australian Capital Territory have appealed to people in quarantine not to open their doors in the nude when they drop by to check that those required to be at home in quarantine are actually at home. I imagine the police would appreciate it if those they are checking on could leave their face masks on too.
Sing it with me, people. Feel free to dance too in the privacy of your own homes. We can be respectful about this.
