Keep your distance.
2020 in a nutshell.
Full disclosure; My instinct is one that always emanates from the thought that “I am a grown a** man, best recognize the difference between advise and command & best exercise the former…”.
It is the way.
Alas, exploration of my way in this writing would take me down a personal, and some would argue political, path I don’t wish to walk at this moment in this setting. This is a non profit blog here at BurnSurvivor.org and we pride ourselves on staying within the borders of the “burn business”.
(Hit me up on my personal line if you want an education on other stuff.)
Stay on mission burnt guy.
Mask up. At some point, if you want to go to someone’s house or into someone’s business, you will have two choices. Mask up or do not enter. At some point you’re gonna have to mask up. You will have to wear the over the ear green or blue thing.
Or will you?
Not me. I won’t. Because I can’t. I do not have ears, or ears remaining that will allow such. The mask thing has been a pain when going to the hospital, and unfortunately I’ve had to go a lot to prep for a major foot surgery coming up (shout out to me wearing an Ilizarov with style come Halloween…hope the technology has come a long way since my last one circa 1995).
I don’t do the bandana, so most times I wore a motorcycle sleeve. Many times I’ve had to explain how the mask being offered was of no use and would not be worn as I showed off my burn enhanced ear to drive home the point that an ear lobe mask was useless (strangely, they rarely had the surgeon type masks that tie around the head).
Then my friend (who is the exact opposite of me in mask wearing enthusiasm) asked me to collaborate with her to get someone she deals with on the mask front to help us create something that would “change my ways” and get me to always wear a mask…uh, no…correct that dude…I should say, help hook me up with a mask that worked for a guy like me when a mask has to be worn…much better…do not let on that any woman changed you in any way.
My anecdotal studies show that even ear people prefer this type mask. My study consists of 20 out of 20 approval (a guy working the MRI machine, a gal working the X-ray machine, a few doctors and nurses who thought it was cool…a few friends…my friend & my own family approval, regardless of ear design…&…well…not even the pollsters can be so accurate these days).
Our effort added a unique head strap that angles just right cooperating with the ear loops.
The most important piece of the greatest mask adaptation ever…an owner that will work with you until you are satisfied.
