selfie, C19 mask Show more
Yesterday, I tried on my Dentec Nx400 elastomeric respirator (with N95 filters, the P100 filters should arrive soon).
For context, our entire family wears (K)N95 masks.
My son's reaction: "Wow you have a gas mask!"
Spouse's reaction: "Don't you think you're going a little overboard?"
Sadly, no, as the rest of the world stops wearing masks this is what those of us who want to protect ourselves have to do.
I'll wear it to help normalize it for others.
Of course, our family is only as protected as the weakest link. I'm hoping our kids will consider upgrading as well.
My spouse, a college professor in a health & physical fitness program, will be a very tough sell though :/
