Flu Shot

Did my civic duty.  #flushot

I did my civic duty!

PSA: The flu vaccine isn’t perfect. They have to make an educated guess at which strains will be most common, long before flu season starts. They guess wrong sometimes. But even when they guess wrong, a flu shot may still give you partial immunity. True story: The last time I had flu, I also had gotten a flu shot. But I was only sick for a few days, and it was not horrible. Coworkers who did not get a flu shot were out sick for a couple of weeks, and one of them ended up with pneumonia. I don’t want that, so I get a flu shot.

If there was any remaining doubt that there’s a Boxer hiding inside Thomas, I think it can be laid to rest.

"Just hanging out with my empty ice cream container."

It cracks me up when he stuffs things under his fang tooth and just hangs out with them there.

I’m not sure what was going on up there. It was kind of creepy looking, though.
