Norma has an envelope labeled "Money"--sure to foil burglars. It's for household expenses. She asked me to drop by the bank, while I do errands, to restock it for another month --or whenever this lockdown ends. She said, "Oh, and wear your gloves."
"I do." I said, but she wasn't finished.
"Also", she said, "Governor Newsom says you should wear a mask."
I thought a moment and replied with a question. "I already wear rubber surgical gloves in public, but a mask? I have trouble with the idea of entering a bank with a mask on. Does our governor also want me to carry a black sack labeled LOOT?
I'll find out tomorrow if tellers can call me by name and smile or say,"Well, aren't you whoever you are?"
