Masks Off?


Are you ready?! …


Cynthia is wearing her face mask and counting down the minutes until she is officially fully vaccinated.

Cynthia: 10, 9, 8 …

Marcy yawns.

Cynthia (excitedly):  7, 6, 5 …

Marcy stretches.

Cynthia:  4, 3, 2 …

Cynthia leaps to her feet.

Cynthia (shouting): One!

Cynthia rips off her face mask and runs out the door to feel the effects of the “full face breeze”.

We hear her “woo hoo-ing” in the apartment courtyard.

penelope kitten enters in a bit of a panic.

penelope kitten (squeaking):  who’s woo hoo-ing?

Marcy:  Mom.

Cynthia bounds back into the apartment. penelope kitten dives for refuge under the sofa.

Marcy:  How was it?

Cynthia (breathless):  Amazing.

penelope kitten (hiding under the sofa):  your face is naked! omg!

Cynthia:  Come on, kitties! Let’s go cavort in the courtyard.

penelope kitten:  it’s too soon!

Cynthia and Marcy: Officially fully vaccinated!

Marcy (drolly): We heard.

    I’ve been feeling pretty okay with not wearing a mask outside (since being fully vaccinated), as long as I’m not in a crowd . But I still have it with me in case I get nervous. It’s like my little security blanket. I wish I looked as cute in it as P-Kitty does!

      I’ve been pretty maskless since the vaccine kicked in but still attach it when shopping indoors.
      Not ready to eat inside a restaurant yet or take public transportation.
      You’ll be fine, P. Take it slow, do kitten steps.?
