Do you realize that we've now been wearing masks each and every day for one year?

Face masks have become a (reluctant) part of life for almost everyone - well, with the exception of those mask haters that are still trying to keep up the anti-mask fight.

Masks have become more and more elaborate and finding one is no longer the sort of challenge is was when the COVID-19 problem began.

We, of course, are hoping for the end of the pandemic and, hopefully, a day when we can shed the mask much like your mom sheds her bra after a long day at work.

Until then, though, we need to continue to wear masks - even those of us who are fully vaccinated. (Hey, not my idea. Don't shoot the messenger.)

Now, a new mask has emerged. A mask to keep you safe (or, relatively safe...) while you're eating and drinking. Ladies and gentlemen, we give you the nose mask:

So, the nose mask was invented in Mexico. Um, no offense to anyone, but I can't think of ever hearing anything invented in Mexico, other than, you know, tacos and margaritas!

So, there it is! The nose mask!

Ain't it attractive?
