  • "Being and Showtime" pen; this ballpoint pen with click mechanism has a moveable silver metal clip and black ink; use it to write letters to friends and family, take notes in the margin of Being and Showtime, or write a novel about your time during the pandemic and your road to vaccination and health! The pen is in black and showtime-curtain-red, with an HPS cartoon and a quote from the book about the mournful nature of writing and language.
  • "Being and Showtime" masks; you will receive a pack of 10 disposable face masks; each mask is made from non-woven, triple-layer polypropylene and has an adjustable nose wire with elastic ear loops; for safety reasons, the masks themselves are sealed in a pack of 10 and only have the "Being and Showtime" marking on the outside of the package, not on each mask; the large sticker has a cartoon drawn by HPS that is in chapter 3 of the book and the text reads, "There's no Showtime without Being. Keep your distance, wash your hands, and stay safe!"
