Most days wearing my mask is really no big deal, but there are some days where it can be irritating.

I know we should all wear masks until this country gets COVID-19 under control. It truly is one of our best defenses in keeping from contacting the virus as well as passing it to others.

Most of the time when I get out of my car, if my mask is not on, its like when I don't have my seatbelt on, I immediately notice it and quickly put it on.

There are some days when I get to work and I have my laptop, lunch and whatever else I decide to lug into work then realize after my hands are full, I better put on my damn mask.

Same goes for when I go shopping, I'll walk half way to the store's entrance and realize, dang it, I have to go back a get my mask.

Anytime I am out where other people are going to be around I have my mask on but then the phone rings and I spend half the call having to repeat everything I say since I'm I'm talking through a mask.

In the summer when it was really hot out and I was in public wearing my mask I really hated it, especially when going into a store. After being in there a while I would come out to my vehicle and remove the mask only to find a ring of beaded sweat around my mouth and nose.

Hey, don't get me wrong, I am all for wearing a mask in order to protect others and myself but sometimes it just gets a little irritating. I sure hope a year from now that wearing a mask will be a thing of the past.
