Woman feels a bit too ill to wear a mask today

A woman has elected to not wear a mask today, as she’s feeling a little bit ill and the mask would just make her feel even worse.

Ms Eleanor Gay made the decision after waking to find she had a nasty cough.

“I’ve been coughing since I woke up,” she said.

“Having to wear a mask while you’re coughing like that, well, it’s not very nice, is it, you’re just coughing into the mask and then breathing what you’ve coughed back in.

“And, to be honest, I’ve got a bit of a temperature as well I think, so the mask will only make me feel hotter.”

Ms Gay promised to start wearing her mask again when she’s feeling a little better.

“Oh yes, I’m fine with it usually, but I just feel so lousy today. One day won’t make a difference.”

“As soon as I start to feel better, I’ll make sure I pop it back on. I mean, it’s actually quite a funky one with leopard print and ‘you’re a star’ written across it, which is actually another reason why I don’t want to ruin it my coughing up god knows what onto it.”

She is confident that people will be understanding of her not wearing her mask.

She went on, “I’m sure people will be fine. I mean, I was on the bus the other day and this poor woman was coughing and spluttering with a mask on and so I just told her to take it off, I didn’t mind.”
