He thought I’d be interested, and he was right…


I was doing one of my walks around the neighborhood yesterday, and a guy in a white pickup truck stopped beside me. I figured he wanted to ask directions or something, but that wasn’t it.

A selfie I shot on the same walk. How could he tell I'd be interested?

A selfie I shot on the same walk. What made him think I’d be interested?

He said that looking at me, he thought I might be interested in seeing something his wife had made for him.

I said “Sure,” and he put it on.

Above you see him without it. Below you see him with it.

Pretty amazing, huh? When I got home and showed my wife, on the small screen of my phone, she couldn’t even tell at first that it was a face mask. I had to point it out.

Don’t know how his wife did it. Maybe took a picture of him, and sent it off to be printed on cloth? I should have asked.

In any case, I was suitably impressed…

    OK, just to be all factual and all, he mentioned something about my beard when he said he thought I might be interested. I just thought the story might be more fun if I left that out…

    Nice. Gotta keep the ‘rona off your beard. 🙂

    I have some good reading for you when you’re ready for some good fiction. It’s set during the time of the Aubrey-Maturin world (the Napoleonic Wars) but it follows a solider (Richard Shape) in a elite rifle battalion. Have you heard of this series? I’ve completed the first three…

        Yep. That’s the series. The author said he was trying to do for the British army what Hornblower did for the British navy.

    I will order one of these ASAP, using a picture of myself from 30 years ago. So much cheaper and less painful than plastic surgery or Botox and fillers. Also Jane Austen, Queen Elizabeth I and anyone from the cast of “Hamilton,” depending on whom I would like to channel on a given day.
