I got my flu shot!
I don’t know if this happens to you, but when I get my flu shot I have feelings of invincibility. I feel like I can do crazy things! It’s like no matter what happens at least I won’t catch the flu. Or, at least, there is only a 3% chance of getting the flu. And those are my kind of odds.
But still, I hold back, I’m no fool.
This time, after I got my shot, I went on the web and read up on what the flu shot was all about. That’s when I was horrified to learn that it takes two weeks to get the full effect from the inoculation. I was still fair game for the flu bug.
Well, that sure put a damper on my euphoria.
So, I’ll soldier on with my tradition flu vigil.
But in two weeks, watch out! I’ll be 3% more dangerous than I am now.
