We’re old enough to remember doing posts about mobs of people ganging up on that one person in the grocery store who wasn’t wearing a cloth mask, even though we’ve since been told that cloths masks are “little more than facial decoration” and you really need an N95 mask. We’re still masking up 2-year-olds as we wait for final emergency authorization of the COVID vaccine for babies.
This editor’s daughter is a chemist and has a respirator, but outside of work, she only wore it on Halloween to pass out candy dressed as a mad professor. This professor, though, Dr. James Smith of York University, put on his respirator to go grocery shopping and noted that most of the customers and employees were maskless. What a good occasion for a selfie to post on social media.

Shopping for hummus in a respirator certainly triggered a lot of people.

Do you, but no need to brag about it or shun those who don’t mask.

What's it like to have so little self-esteem that you require validation from strangers for doing something you know is absolutely worthless, but other mentally ill lunatics need to support b/c being a pussy is now a virtue?

If the alternative is a scuba suit, I'm good with no mask

Don't worry, looks like you've got enough mask for everyone 🙄

I honestly support you in this. Do whatever makes you feel safe but is it really necessary to post this on social media?

He’s just trying to get his point across that #CovidIsnotOver, although a majority of us are over COVID.
