Earlier today, I took my wife to Target to pick up a few things, and like I always do, I waited for her in the snack bar. As an added precaution, because I'm on Chemo, I wore a mask.
While I waited, a young woman came up to me and asked me to remove the mask because it was frightening her child. I told her no without explaining why. I guess my one-word response didn't sit well. She stormed off in a huff wearing her obvious disappointment on her face.
Sorry kid, my health is way more important than your hurt feelings. Tell mommy to get you a night-light. Call me what you will, but I'm all about number one - me first!
