Kind of laugh kind of 😳 : some guy sitting across from me said, "I like your sandals". Then he said, "Do you want a pair of high heels?"Which then he repeated, took out a black pair with about 3" heels from a duffel bag, and said, 'My feet are killing me I've worn them all day" 😳 (!) 😮
Oops, missed the edit, but was thinking the above ^^ was a bit bizarre; if I think in seriousness, kindness, and some guidance, and forgiveness. And feeling better because of that, so that made me smile. Plus some geese, and a funny video I was sent.
Though I notice it is weird- having to wear masks for months, at first they were handy, as I didn't have to hide my expression at work etc. But there must also be truth in that we (all people) both affect our sense of safety by our own expressions, and coregulate with others by our'/ their cues/ expressions.
It's strange too because I've noticed for a while that wearing a mask it is harder for me to hear. That makes sense if I'm reading lips and don't realize it (plugged ear(s) ), but it doesn't explain why it's so when I'm the only one wearing it. I can only guess my brain is busy looking for other safety cues to focus, Idk. Or just less air/ takes more energy? It's kind of funny, actually. 😊
