What a weird world we live in. Yeah, I said it.

Talk about going from 1-100 real quick with COVID-19, dawning the era of the face mask as a cultural phenomenon. Who would have ever imagined we'd be walking around with masks on in public 24/7? The irony of it all is that if you're not seen with a face mask, then you're the outcast and the one who should be ashamed of themselves.

I guess if you have to go with the flow, you might as well look good doing so.

Throughout my passings around the SouthCoast and various places that I've traveled, I've stumbled upon some pretty funky face masks, some that were fancy and others that were dog-gone funny. Some that were Plain Jane and others that stood out like a beacon. Whichever mask you rocked, there's most likely a story behind the mask.

Personally, I rock a black designer bandana that was gifted from the one and only G-Eazy, a rapper. For me, it's more about comfort than fashion, and it's easier to breathe than out of an N-95 surgical mask. I can leave it around my neck at all times and when I need to go out into public or into a store, it's ready at command. Just lift, set, and I'm good to go.

We all have a story to tell and representation of who we are. Whether that's through music or yes, even face masks, it's what makes us original:
