A couple of months ago I walked into my usual store and was reprimanded for not wearing a mask: this sudden change seemed to happen overnight. So I went home and ordered a couple of masks, but when they arrived I found them very uncomfortable to wear,sort of claustrophobic. Then I saw a couple of characters wearing bandannas and remembered my fondness for them back in my younger years (good for wiping down sweat or guitars, or sweaty guitars). So I went on Etsy and bought about a dozen of them in all different colors and patterns, and I believe I've got a new addiction. I find them much easier to deal with than the masks and simply wind them up smaller on my neck when I don't need them. And I think they look kind of cool. A funny thing happened the other day: I was standing at the counter of the store waiting for the salesguy to go into the back to get my carton of smokes when two guys came in from the Brinks truck to take the cash to the bank. I'm standing there with my Panama hat and a black bandanna over my face, looked at the two guys, and then saw myself in the mirror. The guys looked at me and I laughed and said, "Just waitin' on my smokes" Nobody else laughed. Best I stay home as much as possible these days. p.s. I see our friend from The Well-dressed Head is offering original ones from 1920s France that he found a bolt of somewhere. They're going for $75.00 each.
