Masking Agent

The nurse has sent us a reminder that students are allowed to wear masks to prevent the spreading of germs as long as they have written permission from a parent or guardian. I don’t know about you, but I’m not going to ask a kid who looks like an extra in the movie Outbreak to hand over anything for me to inspect let alone a permission slip.

Another thing the nurse said that made me take pause was her clarifying that the mask could not be homemade. I wonder why anyone would do that? She is, however, obviously sharing this little tidbit because someone actually came to school with a homemade mask. I bet it was like a gym sock with a rubber band attached to it.

It was probably decorated too, like the hockey masks the goalies wear today… but in a jack-a-ninny kind of way. I can see it now; big red lips with a fat doobie hanging out. Or would it be vampire fangs? Yeah, those are popular now so I’m going to go with vampire fangs… vampire fangs and a speech bubble that reads, “SUCK IT!”
