In my Friday post I talked about San Diego County moving into a less restrictive phase, allowing for more people to eat in restaurants and visit public attractions.
Our governor had emphasized that we were still in the middle of a pandemic, and we all needed to continue wearing face masks, washing our hands frequently, and social distancing.
But this was a positive sign, and I was feeling cautiously optimistic about this small but significant step toward normalcy.
To celebrate, my husband and I went out to eat on Saturday – the first weekend with eased restrictions. Our first time out to eat in I can’t remember how long.
YES!!! WE WENT OUT TO EAT, INSIDE THE RESTAURANT!!!
We sat by a front window, which looked out onto a busy part of downtown. It’s a great spot for people watching.
But on this Saturday…
Not so great.
Because so many of the people I was watching were doing this:
I saw this – the face mask hanging from the ear arrangement:
And this – hanging from the wrist:
Yes, I saw all this, plus plenty of people with no face mask at all.
And my cautious optimism?
