Who is That Masked Man?
Posted 30 April, 09on:
This flu frenzy is really nothing to laugh about, but this made me laugh out loud, literally. I love the pig mask. I saw this on Noquedanblogs. They find some great stuff on the internet.
Of course, my mind immediately went to sewing. Think of the fabulous custom face masks we could make with the fabrics in our stash!
Then reality hit me. If the Center for Disease Control says that the medical masks from the drugstore don’t really work against this flu, then certainly the cute ones I could make at home won’t do much either. Rats! I had plans for machine embroidery designs, rhinestones, and lace trims. Just think of the potential.
Hubski was in New York last week. A few days ago, he called me from work to say he wasn’t feeling well. As he described his symptoms, I happened to be watching the news. They flashed up a graphic with the symptoms of swine flu. Fever, aches, fatigue… Check, check, check… For a half of a second, I thought, “Dude, if you are responsible for bringing this flu to our state…I do not want to be responsible for shutting down our school…” Though, again, think of the sewing we could do if we were quarantined for a couple weeks. As it turns out, he has a simple cold. He is whining, but he is fine.
It is a sign of some sort of illness that I can turn a worldwide health crisis into a sewing opportunity?
