I always wonder what conversation couples have had when one is wearing a mask and the other isn’t. Did they agree they’d be safe from each other if only one wore a mask? Did the one with a mask just decide to tolerate the other’s irresponsible decision without dissent? Did the one without express contempt for the idea of protection that the one with simply swallowed?
Courting doesn’t mean unmasking.
I had just commented to my wife, on our walk a couple of weeks ago, how it seemed most people were now wearing masks and the need to do so seemed finally to have permeated the consciousness of most New Yorkers when we passed this corner and I had to take it back.
