Four years ago, we went to a Secret Cinema production of 28 Days Later which was great fun, what with it being fictional and all.
As the dress code was “scrubs and surgical mask”, I purchased two pairs of green scrubs and a box of 100 cheapo paper masks from a medical supplies website. It was the smallest quantity available.
The scrubs turned out to be a fantastic stay-at-home outfit and we have been wearing them on a daily basis ever since. The masks, on the other hand, have been sitting in a drawer. I occasionally used one when sanding wood but apart from that, what can you do with a box of paper surgical masks?
Then the coronavirus struck.
Now the country is in lockdown and we wear the masks to go shopping. Eek.
