I asked a young lady (College Student) working in a grocery store how she likes wearing a mask ? I can’t print what she said but she added very cleverly, “I guess it’s where we are, I need to work and can’t imagine making anybody sick.” Pretty smart young lady, she’ll go far. I’m pretty sure she’s beautiful too, but it’s hard to say with that mask
