Absolutely it’s worth it. I could see the other side of it more easily if there was some sort of sacrifice being made, but wearing a mask doesn’t really fit the bill. I mean, it’s not really costing us anything aside from the few bucks you have to shell out to pick up a reusable one. So yeah, as far as inconveniences go, this is about as minor as it gets, IMHO.

Also, it’s always nice to meet a fellow OCD’er! It’s not an easy thing to talk about, for sure. But in this case, it felt necessary given the relevancy of my experiences to the whole lockdown issue.

Thanks a ton for reading and commenting, as well as for the flattering feedback. I really appreciate it! :)
