Ah, winter....the season of inconvenient weather and plenty of diseases to go around. Scott and I have stayed pretty healthy so far, knock on wood. Plenty of people around us have not been so fortunate.
I've seen a lot of people wearing surgical masks recently. I'm not sure what to make of them. Should I feel grateful that people are trying to contain their germs, or fearful of the germs that they're trying to contain? I find myself trying to give people wearing surgical masks a wide berth, but maybe I should actually be more afraid of the people who might be sick, but haven't signaled it to the world at large by wearing a mask. Hmm.
