Whitefish City Council did some sort of resolution to ask folks to wear masks.
The Whitefish Wave, in “support” of this resolution asking folks to wear masks, has laid down a rule requiring folks to wear masks. This is called “California Logic”.*
I can’t express how much I like this rule without using four-letter words. Here I am today, in the locker room, heading for the pool. No, the rule does not require us to wear the masks while swimming. That’ll be next week.
But we do have to wear the masks while on the pool deck. We don’t have to use them when working out on a machine – but we are supposed to wear the masks when moving from machine to machine, or when resting on a machine.**
And there is absolutely nothing that can be done about this.
Except to move to Mexico.
Fortunately, we’re heading down there next month. With any luck, this silliness will be over by the time we get back – or maybe we won’t come back :)***
*okay, then, YOU name it. My friend Don says that Whitefish used to be a nice sensible town, until these folks moved in. Now, they aren’t about to move back, because California is hell on earth, but they would sure like to help the rest of us make Whitefish into a little bit of that, since they are smarter than we are.
**Yes, that’s one of the things that they say – which is, if you think about it, an open admission that they don’t actually expect people to get off of the machines while resting. I’ve often noticed that the person trainers seemed to be teaching their clients to sit on their machines while resting and updating Facebook. I sort of thought that it was just poor manners. Now I realize it’s policy.
***no, I don’t expect this silliness to be over by the time we get back. As long as they keep pretending that asymptomatic cases of Coronavirus are the same as open smallpox sores, and that somebody who shoots himself while carrying Corona is a COVID death, this silliness won’t end – maybe ever.
