Wearing a mask, while smoking a pipe

Post by Winton » Thu Oct 01, 2020 7:07 am

Over the last two monthly pipe club meetings, I have been experimenting on how to comply with the COVID recommendations, while smoking my pipe. My first attempt was with a cloth mask, my wife made. This style is similar to the horrid paper / rubber band masks, but it is much more comfortable and ties on behind my head. She selected a piece of cloth that had dancing frogs on it. While, I think it adds to my dignity level, it was very bothersome to keep slipping the pipe under the mask to take another puff.

Last week, I tried using a bandana for a mask. I also used an Oom Paul pipe, since this would allow the pipe to be in my mouth and have my face largely covered. I was having great success with this technique, for a while. Then I discovered that I was becoming increasingly lightheaded. Apparently, the smoke was trapped inside my bandana.

So far, I am not content with the new smoking experience. If anyone has better suggestion, please let me know.

Get your wife to use her sewing machine to sew a buttonhole in your mask. The stem goes through the hole.

There are many terrible attributes of the lowly cob. Not the least of them is that it makes you look like a doof.

No mask needed. I’ve never had a problem with social distancing when I smoke. I blame my resting angry face.
