You know I want it
(Just a note about The Vaccine)
Normal is nothing. Everything is too long ago to be normal. Which means I finally have a legitimate excuse to make everything up as I go along. Obviously I’ve been doing that my whole life, but now it’s acceptable.
My arm received my first dose of the Covid vaccine last week. It was oddly soothing. Not that I enjoy shots — I literally cannot even look at the needle going into my arm — but it felt like progress. Getting the shot felt like a shift forward of some sort after standing still for over a year. And yet we aren’t done with this pandemic business. I need one more shot to be fully vaccinated. So does my husband. My kids don’t qualify yet.
So “normal” isn’t a thing and may not ever be.
But safe-to-mingle-with-friends may return soon. And safe-to-eat-at-a-restaurant. Maybe even safe-to-go-to-a-concert…
A girl can dream, right?
