Local Man Survives Shopping Trip While Wearing Mask
GROVE CITY, PA – A local man went shopping for groceries late Wednesday night while wearing a cloth face covering in response to COVID-19 regulations. With his mask on, Warren Throckmorton, a professor at Grove City College, was able to secure numerous items during the 35 minute excursion without injuring his health.
“I know it might surprise some people, but I didn’t lose consciousness even once. My heart rate went up a little in the hot sauce section, but I think that was because of the great selection,” Throckmorton said.
Many shoppers in the local County Market were not wearing masks observed Throckmorton.
“From what Facebook says, I bet they were afraid they would pass out.”
Throckmorton said he was even able to engage in one of his favorite shopping activities with his mask on: Grooving to the background music.
“The store plays some really good tunes. I like to groove while I shop.”
When asked if he planned to try wearing the mask again for other activities, Throckmorton said, “Now that I know I won’t die from wearing a mask, the sky’s the limit.”
Throckmorton demonstrates for the skeptical reader just how he was able to shop while wearing his mask without having a major health catastrophe.
The entire trip was uneventful except for the many people who were not wearing masks. We wear masks to protect others in the event we have COVID-19 and don’t know it. If everybody wears a mask, the spread can be slowed.
