Just a little stick. Then a little burn.

I haven't had a flu shot in 17 years.
My kids haven't had one in seven or eight. Hope that doesn't make me a bad mom...
Not naive enough to think that we won't get the flu, but we really just try to stay away from icky things. I wipe down door handles, light switches, remote controls, etc. Daily. Obsessively.
And, we haven't be sick in a long time.
Hope I didn't just jinx us.
But, now my employer requires mandatory flu shots.
Or, we can pass and wear a mask from December to April.
Hmmmm would that be so bad?
But I'll be getting a shot today.
Have I mentioned I'm a fainter?
Not the reason I don't want to get a shot.  Just informing you.
Hope I don't fall out at work today.
Or get sick in three days.
I'll be brave.
I hope.
