until I started wearing a KN95 face mask, which tugged on my
ears on both sides and pulled them way out of line at right
angles to my skull
N95 masks are made in the U.S. and do not tug on ears.
KN95 masks come from China and use ear loop straps.
The majority of imported KN95 masks do not meet
the U.S. NIOSH N95 standard.
So buy N95 masks. It's the patriotic thing to do,
AND it will protect your ears (and is safer).
(Yesterday, while grocery shopping, I saw someone
who had stunted ears. Probably born, but with him
wearing a mask with ear straps, it looked as if
exhaustive wearing of the mask has produced this.)
