Day 406: Shots, Dinner, and a Movie

I got shot today.

Mr. December and I shot up together today.

Shoot me now.

The Mr. and I got our COVID vaccines today (AstraZenica, just like everyone else in our age bracket.) Getting shots is not as much fun as doing shots, but it was still more fun to do together than it would have been alone. It’s also easier to get a good angle on the obligatory vaccination selfie. The pharmacist assured me that the vaccine works just as well if you don’t take a selfie and post it online, but I’m not taking any chances. Can’t hurt, might help. Right?

Tonight we (as in, just the two of us) watched A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood. So now I have the friendliest earworm stuck in my head (“Please won’t you be my neighbour?”) and am thinking that my kids haven’t seen nearly enough Mr. Rogers.

It’s late and my arm is achy, but I’m thankful for the vaccine and for Mr. December. There’s nobody I’d rather do get shots with.

  1. SO GLAD YOU GOT SHOT !!
    And apologies for failing to share that the ideal attire for women getting shots in arm is a tank top with a button up front sweater and warm zip or button up front jacket over it so you can remove arm from sleeves easily in one swift move….. and replace equally rapidly. Keep in mind for followup shot….. when it may be so warm the tank is adequate without over layers.
    SORRY I did not share before your shot. (this is such a family tradition I forget other people do not automatically know it.)
    SO GLAD YOU HAVE FIRST ONE DONE!!!! Hope you both are feeling well and continue to have no significant side effects. Huge hugs.
