Let's Dumb This COVID-19 Mask Thing Down #KISS

SHARE:

Simple reasons you should wear a mask during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Alright, it's time to dumb this down. I'm going to try to make this relatable to YOU. 

If I haven't, please comment and tell me about yourself; tell me WHY you don't wear a mask, AFTER you read the entire post.

Let's think of COVID-19 as a STD. If it were, you would wear protection, right?

Let's think of COVID-19 as a motorcycle. If it were, you would wear a helmet, right?

Let's think of COVID-19 as the sun. If it were, you'd be rockin' the visor or hat, the sunglasses and SPF SOMETHING, right?

Let's think of COVID-19 as a forklift. If it were, you'd be REQUIRED to wear protection (at least in the US). Thanks OSHA! 

Let's think of COVID-19 as a potentially fatal car accident. Did someone say seat belt? Ah, yes. I wear that.

Let's think of COVID-19 as a female NOT doing the hover over the toilet seat in a public restroom. Do you really know where those lady parts have been? 

This is the part where some of you drop out. Good luck.


Let's think of wearing a mask for COVID-19 as washing your produce. You're cool with Monsanto dripping all kinds of GMO, cancer causing products (i.e. ROUNDUP) into your yard, walking through it with your bare feet, letting your children and your dogs play in it, but GASP....what do you mean I have to wear a piece of cloth over my nose and mouth to prevent people from DYING.

Let's think of COVID-19 as the thought of doing something that we "miss" because we decide we're not going to "live in fear" and infecting a loved one who then passes away due to (the primary cause) being COVID-19.

We're still only in the first wave, people. The second wave will be terribly worse, especially for the U.S. because we're all about getting back to "normal" and worried about our freedom.

Guess what? Death from COVID-19 doesn't equal freedom (some exclusions apply, i.e. primary cause not COVID-19 and is debilitating and/or near fatal anyway - SAD, but true - I'm a realist).

The fact of the matter is, you should be afraid. You should be very afraid, if not for you, for your loved ones. As I type this I feel like those who are not afraid may actually be in denial and they could be very afraid that this virus will take them or one of their loved ones and they want to make the best of the time they have. I could be wrong, but it seems plausible. Of course, another theory is the "it won't happen to me" mindset. 

Another thing that seems to fall by the wayside is the six degrees of separation

six-degrees-of-separation

You can do everything right and then come into contact with just one person, who has another six degrees of contacts and another and another and another. However many people you come into contact with, multiply that by SIX times because you have NO IDEA what those six degrees are doing.

With that, putting another piece of cloth over your nose and mouth, properly, should not be a big deal. Think of it as no shoes, no shirt, no service. We all adapted to that, right?

C'mon folks. It's not that hard. 

Let's keep the comments civil, please.

I wish you all the best, seriously.

Love and light!

Mel
