Let's hear it for the masks!

I'm back in Omaha and in light of the swine flu, the Children's hospital out here is mandating universal face masks for everyone. Even if we're not sick, whenever we see a patient, we need to wear a mask. The patients need to wear a mask. The parents need to wear a mask. Heck, if the kid brought a baby doll, they'd probably have to wear a mask too. Seriously though, I guess this is good and a necessary precaution, but I miss being able to see the social smile of the kids or trying to connect with them by making funny faces. I just hope they don't mandate universal gowning next.

(I feel like Michael Jackson always wearing a mask).
