I took some time off, I was too focused and I was getting a new madness from the new normal. I went to Edmonton to find the city is neck deep in batshit crazy. The need to keep the peace with my daughters and wife, and the requirements of a mandatory masked society, was a high wire act to say the least. I think it is the pretense that is the most annoying -- I did experience some wearers of the device who actually have a good sense of humor. But wear it anyway. A black masked woman came up to me in a Save-On-Foods and looked at my mask down around my neck -- they didn't say 'how' to wear it? Just wear it. And besides its a $130 ticket I hear, and going back to Edmonton to challenge an unjust bylaw and the court appearance would prove a waste of my rather illustrious talents. You have to pick your battles. Anyway this nice lady looked at me and smiled from under her mask -- I could tell by here eyes, and she said, "You're a rather tall and handsome fellow, can you get something off the top shelf for me?"
