The context of this is: My work requires that I sometimes visit a chemical room. Inside said room, upon said room’s wall, is a gas mask. It’s a dirty thing that I’ve never put on because it’s gross. I think it might be there to prevent me from dying should anything happen, and, man, the way that room is kept that’s definitely a possibility. But whatever. I’d sooner die than wear that unkempt mask. Apparently.
