TulaneLSU's Top 10 face masks
Dear Friends,

Do you walk by faith or by sight? I suppose we all walk by a little of both, depending on what our needs are at that moment. Walking by faith is hard, almost impossible, in a materialistic country like America. So much of our culture is all about the physical, the material, the stuff on which we can put our fingers and around which we can grasp with our hands. We want some terra firma on which to stomp our feet, grab some dirt, and plant a flag. I mean, when God came to Abram and told him that at age 100, and with a wife of 90, he would become the father of children as numerous as the stars in the sky, Abram laughed because he thought it impossible; it was beyond the realm of the empirical data of his life. Abram wanted some evidence, you know? He wanted something in which he could sink his senses, to touch, and know in this physical world. He laughed and Sarai laughed too. But in the end, they became Abraham and Sarah. How many children of the faith claim them as their parents?

But then we come to a point when our everyday lives, our culture, our economy, our sports, indeed, every aspect of the American life is dictated and controlled by faith that there is something floating about, something imperceptible to the human eye and most microscope lenses, sickening and killing. One need not go too long walking through a hospital to see with the eye that our faith is indeed placed in something that is real.

The anti-mask movement I see pains me. It pains Mother, primus inter pares, as well. To see that movement infect my beloved OT has left me in tears more than every night for the last month. It calls to mind those left wing San Franciscan loons who formed the Anti-Mask League in 1919 in response to a city ordinance requiring masks in public. Despite what all the science says -- that masks cut transmission -- some mock the mask as an intrusion on their personal liberty. What's the big deal if only the diabetic and hypertensive and nursing home patient are really at risk for death (a false premise)? Ignored are the words of our dear friend, St. Paul: "Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others." If wearing a mask helps prevent transmission, the masks will help open our economy again. The mask seems a small price of personal liberty to pay for the health of our community and the health of our economy. As our duty to others comes before our rights as individuals, for what good is a right if no one is duty-bound to protect it, brothers and sisters, friends, I plead with you to wear a mask.

To that end, I would like to share with you some of my favorite masks that I have procured over the months. These are not the best masks around; they are simply my top 10. I hope some of you will share your masks, perhaps share a top 10 list of masks you own. I must, however, also apologize for this letter being so brief. I have again returned to the lab to restart my vaccination studies. My last attempts were grossly unsuccessful and caused quite the mess and stink. Thankfully, Mother was quarantined at the family compound in Mississippi so she missed my painstaking efforts which produced sudoriferous emanations from my body and mephitic fumes from my subjects. Mother has once again fled to the estate for another round of quarantine. Please pray for her, as this time, she is alone.

TulaneLSU's Top 10 face masks

10. Psychedelic orange

Mother's seamstress, who lives in St. Rose, has expanded her business recently to include face masks. While many of her cloth samples are lovely, this one was not. I would not be caught dead in public wearing this horrific 70s style cloth, unless I had no resort.


9. Sam's rotisserie chicken mask

Image: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49708177163_a220120020_k.jpg


As some of you will recall from my Perfect 10 Ezekiel 24 chicken rice soup, I gave directions on transforming a cover for a Sam's rotisserie chicken into a face shield, using just a knife and two Fuzzy Sticks. I must confess that this mask was not very helpful, as I could feel my breath escaping from below. In the summer heat, it also fogs up, which causes a safety hazard like the one I experienced on Dumaine on my olive mix errand. The benefit of being able to see another's lips while they talk may help those who are mute, but I have nonetheless stopped using it.


8. Floral design


Image: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50095851781_8a6c3efd51_k.jpg


This design seems better suited for a couch on Designing Women. Mother quite likes the print, but it is too feminine for me.

7. Watermelon


Image: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50095273118_96d6905747_k.jpg


Few things say summer better than tomatoes and watermelon. What better to wear when tending your crop row or going to the local farm to purchase some fresh produce, as I did in Elberta, AL.

6. Brooks Brothers

I was so impressed with Mother's seamstress's mask work that I had her repurpose a pair of boardshorts from Brooks Brothers. While this mask is beautiful, I was also sad that I ruined a swimsuit from a now bankrupt Brooks Brothers. It devastated me when Neiman Marcus recently filed, though it allowed me to reminiscence on TulaneLSU's Top 10 department store restaurants. Although I did most of my childhood shopping at Goldberg's, I feel I must honor BB with a letter one day.

5. Surgical mask

Image: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50095851136_86a07f3d3c_k.jpg


Mother always wanted me to be a surgeon, but I found that I was never very good at retracting. My wrists would always lock up and my anxiety got the best of me, causing me to sweat profusely, clouding my plastic glasses and making it difficult to breathe. Now when I wear this mask, which I did label so no one else in the house used, Mother says, "It is never too late to finish medical school, TulaneLSU."

4. Blue

Image: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50095851316_19f91d694b_k.jpg


This mask is made of silk and feels so friendly when I wear it. It has the most masculine of designs and has garnered me the most compliments. I call it "Blue" and have it dry cleaned. Does anyone know if dry cleaning kills coronavirus?

3. N-95

Image: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50095852366_d0268cadbe_k.jpg


Next to impossible to get right now, I have this mask from my crafting days. A true Christmas crafter uses every medium and material available, from plastic to acrylic to gold to wood to metals of all sorts. An N-95 is essential when dealing with these materials. I so hoped to do several Top 10 Christmas craft lessons with you in this upcoming Advent, but fear it will not be successful without the ready availability of N-95 masks, which will be necessary for some of these crafts.

2. Christmas mask

Image: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50095852191_2eb329fe80_k.jpg


Did someone say Christmas? Oh, how I yearn for Advent right now. Though this year's may be quite different from years past, I will not prevent disease from building the most elaborate decorations in TulaneLSU history. People will be able to enjoy my labors soon enough from the safety of distance and their cars. It brings to mind the great hymn, O Come, O Come, Emmanuel. May we all be able to take another Advent Journey together this year.

1. Christmas in July

Image: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50095851576_6415c0f925_k.jpg


Christmas should be year round. It isn't, but at least we can celebrate Christmas in July. Why not fill a fellow American with that holiday cheer by wearing a mask? Better filled with joy and mirth than coronavirus, lest they not see this Christmas because of your germs, which you could be spreading unknowingly.

Faith, Hope, and Love,
TulaneLSU

Most of these “masks” look like they were made out of mother’s granny panties.

TulaneLSU, question for you. How you feel about technology? Are modern philosophers cool headed logicians?

You and your mask fixation is the 3rd most disappointing this about the coronavirus outbreak. Your posts used to take me away on a mental vacation. I left them lighter and a tad more joyful. Now I cringe.
