I’ve been griping a lot about face masks this week. But finally, I discovered a wonderful silver lining.

In my old age, I have developed occasional GOAT HAIR in the vicinity of my mouth and chin. AAAIIIEEE!!! So, from time to time, I have to go to the so-called beauty shop (false advertising) and . . . gulp . . . get waxed.

Double AAAIIIEEE!!!!

I used to call it a “moustache wax.” But pride intervened. Now I just ask for a “lip and chin wax.” And wince.

It always makes my lower face get red hot and very itchy for at least a day.

But, as I went to pay for the intentional infliction of pain today, I smiled, for the required mask actually hid my beet red, itchy face,  and the road map of wrinkles around my mouth.

Heyyyy! Guess masks are not ALL bad. Once in a while!

 But as for you, ye thought evil against me;

but God meant it unto good,

to bring to pass, as it is this day,

to save much people alive.

–Genesis 50:20
