Morning Mask Musings
You know what’s going to be a weird relic from nowadays?
A few years from now when memories from this time are starting to fade, but reviews on Yelp or whatever still have comments about mask wearing and social distance precautions.
It’ll seem super weird that for some reason Dale left such a detailed review of a diner’s plexiglass dividers or how Becky was so frustrated that people kept coming within six feet of her while waiting for her to-go order.
On the plus side, all those weird reviews might still give us some nice insights into who is good at what are hopefully a few timeless new ways of life, like super-common to-go deals and contactless delivery.
Yes, in 2030 we’d really like to still be able to have a stranger leave food on the porch and make no attempt to talk to us. We obviously also want to be able to grab that same food from an obnoxiously crowded bar, but the contactless porch thing is perfect for a certain kind of Tuesday night—hands down.
A little mask icon on an online review would make a nice addition to those rankings where they tell you how pricey or how fancy a place is. Five masks for a spot that really has their precautions in order and maybe one mask for a place that does the bare minimum. (We’ll need some sort of germy icon for places that do really terribly.)
Man, what a weird musing this is turning out to be. It’s a super odd time to be a human. Regardless, the point buried somewhere here has something to do with masks, and that’s today’s deal. We’ve still got a ways to go getting things back to normal, so grabbing another 40 excellent KN95 masks for twenty-four bucks is not a bad move.
Order some now, then by all means take a few minutes and leave an awesome review of the most responsible takeout place you can think of. Those folks are working hard.
