I keep extra masks in my glove compartment and I just bought a ton of masks with Easter designs since we headed for another Easter under Covid.   You do get used to them and while you are at it, you might as well have some fun wearing them.    

Standing in line at local store, I saw masks for sale that had a grinning sharks mouth superimposed over where your mouth would be, emphasis on the teeth.   I decided to get one because i'm really 8 years old.  Next week I got a reminder that I had an upcoming dentist appt, so it was with great delight that I wore it to the dentists office. It was a smashing success, haha.

I, too, live in hare core Trump territory, 60 mile south of Kansas City. To my horror, I discovered my neighbor and her sisters (all over 65yo),  radicalized by facebook, are devout Trumpists and anti-vaccers. Same for my other neighbors children (in their 40's) who recently hosted a baby shower in a bar with 55 of their closest maskless friends. Covid is fickle or all these fools would have it. They are adamant against the vaccine.

My 62 yo SIL has played fast and loose with Covid restrictions (family gatherings, travel, restaurants, visiting elderly MIL / FIL without a mask, crossing state lines where there is not a mask mandate) and at the same time engages in verbal handwringing over her 70 yo husband getting Covid.   She hasn't gotten sick so far but has insisted that she probably got it because she "sees people".   She is a screaming anti-vaxxer and says she will refuse the vaccine.

If there is anyone who should get Covid it's her.   I am waiting for the day she tests positive and how shocked she will be even after the rest of us are vaccinated.

Last year I made a cloth mask from cotton fabric that had potatoes printed on it.  The fabric was left over from the cloth microwave potato baker I made years before.  Mr. No likes to wear it and calls himself Mr. Potato Head when he does.  He reports that it gets a few laughs.

I worry about creating super bugs or not developing antibodies to regular colds and illnesses. I definitely wear a mask and may continue in certain circumstances long after the vaccine is available. But I don’t use hand sanitizer if a sink and soap are available, and I don’t wipe my grocery cart before I use it, although I usually have my groceries delivered. I’m trying to limit my exposure to germs but not completely eliminate them.

This is one of my concerns, as well.  We have to be exposed to some things for immunity.

I do wipe down the grocery cart, but I shop in store.

      I thought I found the part I need for my car on O'Reilly Auto Parts' website, but it looks like I can't get it at this time. 
      (Please, please, please, please, please click the link! The joke only works if you see it. I promise it really is the auto parts site! )

      A few weeks ago, I was telling @HerNameIsBuffy about the generously sized single carrot I received from Imperfect Foods. Well, today I got two more monsters in my box. I ordered a pound of carrots and a pound of sweet potatoes, and this is what they gave me:

      At its widest point, the sweet potato is nine inches in diameter, while the carrot tops out at seven and three-quarter inches. I kinda feel bad about my plans to eat them, as these two are definitely large enough to pursue careers in the adult film industry.

      Fuck. Both of my interns are in quarantine. One is positive, the other is a close contact (her exposure was from her roommate, not the other intern). I know six other people who are or were sick within the last month and at least four other people who've had to quarantine after close contact. Things were supposed to be getting better. 😷

      I think most of us on FJ dislike the way many of the fundies talk about "training" their children. I've often read FJers post, "You train a dog. You teach a child."
      I would also bet that most of us don't think about humans as being "well bred", like a good breeding line of purebred dogs. 
      I'm a bit nauseated right now from reading the phrase "well bred" applied to human beings so many times. What bullshit.
      And apparently, I think too much.

      I feel like we need a Rachel Hollis snark thread. She landed in a lot of trouble recently after a bad TIKTOK video. She isn't fundie, although she is the daughter of a Pentecostal minister.  I've been watching videos on Youtube about her, both from before the scandal and now. I didn't know much about her, but I'm catching up.

      Conservatives on mask mandates: they’re just trying to make people comply with government rules. Resist!
      Conservatives after yet another police shooting of an unarmed black man: He should have complied with the police’s orders.

      I have a pile of old vintage handkerchiefs with lace crochet edges. Anyone have any ideas on how to display or use them? My grandmother made some of them. Time to get them out of the drawer.

      Attention Massholes!
      There will be a drive-through J&J vaccine clinic in Rutland (near Worcester) on April 19-22, and as of this writing--about 9:30pm on Sunday, April 11--there are tons of slots open on all but the first day. Anyone who lives (or works?) in Massachusetts and is over 18 can sign up now.
      https://www.rrecc.us/vaccine
       
      [And for everyone else: yes, people from Massachusetts are called Massholes. People from elsewhere started calling us that as an insult, but we ran with it. Vaccine demand is wicked high here, so it's hard to get appointments. Hence the public service announcement.]
       
      Side note: I know that J&J allocations are dropping this week, but I presume, or at least hope, that they've planned for that and either already have the vaccines on hand or will get them.
