I don’t particularly enjoy wearing a mask when I go outside, but it’s the right thing to do and it’s the SMART thing to do for myself and everyone I come into contact with.
This is just our new reality, at least for now, so let’s hunker down, be cautious, and try to beat this thing as quickly as we can.
Buuuuuuuuuuuut, we’re also allowed to retain a sense of humor, right?
Phew! I was worried there that we wouldn’t be able to for a second.
So sit back, kick your feet up, and enjoy these funny memes about wearing a face mask in these very strange times we live in.
1. That’s very important.
Keep this in mind…
The upside about a face mask is it catches your snot when you're outside and your nose is running because you forgot to take your antihistamine

2. Just put it on!
Breathing all over me, gross!
Do you think maskless runners in Manhattan look at toddlers wearing masks and think “Thank you for wearing a mask so I don’t have to”?

3. Protecting strength…
Or something like that…
I keep seeing couples where the woman is wearing a face mask and the man isn't, even in the supermarket. That's all. Thank you for listening to my feminist manifesto.

4. Could be either one.
The mask serves many purposes.
me: *putting on mask*
wife: heading out?
me: changing a diaper

5. Hahahaha. So accurate.
Don’t worry about how you look, okay?

6. Cute! Can I get one?
Dogs are being smart about it, too.

7. You gotta be careful about that.
“That guy is a total dick.” Oops.
*continues to mouth bad words at people even after mask time is over

8. This is very popular right now.
And Darth Vader…
A fun thing to do when you’re wearing a face mask in public is talk like Bane

9. Not the cool kind of ninja.
Doesn’t quite come off as intimidating, does it?
When I wear my face mask I like to think I look like a ninja. A tired, stressed, and vacant eyed ninja.

10. You can’t win with some folks.
Just block them out, I guess.
I just find it funny that the same people who refuse to wear masks in public are the same ones who insist we cover our babies with a hot blanket to breast feed.

11. At least you’re staying busy!
And I’ll take one while you’re at it.
Every time I get pissed about everything happening I make masks.
Mailed off my 370th mask today.

12. Security blanket.
Hey, some people might never take them off, even after this is over.
I’ve never worn a mask before and it’s becoming comfortable, like a warm blanket of stay the hell away from me.

Those tweets are a real hoot!
Now we want to hear from all the readers out there!
In the comments, tell us how YOUR mask-wearing adventure is going so far. We want to hear the good, the bad, and the ugly.
And share a pic of yourself in your mask, too, if you’re up for it.
Oh, and one more thing: WEAR A MASK when you go out in public. Do it for yourself and for the sake of others. Please and thank you!
