What was the lesson? I can't tell if it's to toss them now because they're going to be recycled anyway or to hang on to them because it'll be nice to reminisce when I'm recuperating from surgery in...

We used Home Chef and liked it a lot too.

This is not about you, Linda, because you said you'll wear one because you've been asked to.

But the first half is exactly the kind of thing I'm taking about. The mask is not about the wearer. It...
