That Annoying Drop.

In these Strange Times

So much has changed,

We all need to wear masks,

Wear them in situations,

In differing situations.

They may be uncomfortable,

They may be a nuisance,

But they do have one thing,

One thing that is good.

You no longer have to wipe,

To wipe that drop,

That annoying drop off the end,

The end of your nose.

    Snot what i was expecting to read.

    I expect that henceforth I shall feel like the bogeyman wearing my mask.... actually i recently bought a full face covering see through visor type mask.... haven't had the guts to wear it yet.

      Those visors make people look as though they are going to work in the Chemical industry, I know I used to work in it!

        My osteopath wears both the full face visor, conventional mask and rubber gloves..... it's like i'm being experimented upon in a laboratory.

        Had a great chat with a friend about masks
        He said "I don't mind wearing them but they make your glasses steam up funny they never did that when I was in the navy medics"
        I said "did you wear glasses back then"
        He said "Oh NO!"

        Great write Andy

        Goodness bless Peter Green...

          It is such a pain wearing masks and glasses, the number of bumps on my car has increased so much!

          And you can poke your tongue out at people you don't like!

          • Goldfinch60

            I do anyway, I have a hole in my mask to do that.

            Music and nature...what a combo!!
            I enjoyed the instrumental very much.

            As far as the mask and the drop are concerned, I guess I’m doing it wrong. When I sense that drop is about to fall, I lower the mask and wipe that drop with a tissue. Lol

            Have a wonderful Sunday.

              Thank you Laura, we all have our own ways of dealing with these things when wearing masks.

              And you can go unshaved, and you don't have to put your hand up when you yawn, and you can poke your tongue out at people you can't see cos your specs are misted up,

                Very true Michael, my beard is coming along quite nicely thankyou.

                A shamble of tricks lie behind every mask and I dare not look at what others are licking when drops start to fall - - oh when will be able to wipe things with hankies.............

                • Goldfinch60

                  When indeed will normality return Fay.

                  But you still have to wipe your forehead! But that was cute!

                  • Goldfinch60
