Yesterday, we got our flu shots and the latest booster shots for COVID. We don’t normally have reactions to either shot aside from some soreness at the injection site or general achiness. For some reason, the flu shot made my arm itch for a little while. By the time we made it home, the itchiness was gone. I woke up at 5:30 this morning to pee, and I was very achy. It was nothing Tylenol couldn’t fix, and I went back to sleep. The achiness returned a little while ago. I have a telephone interview at noon, so I took more Tylenol.

We watched our football team actually win a game. The quarterback hurt his ankle, and then the backup quarterback got hurt too. I hope neither is serious. It was toward the end of the game, so it had little effect on the outcome. It’s the first time in something like 17 years they’ve started the season at 3-1. I don’t want to get ahead of myself, but maybe we’ll have a winning season. The Seahawks won 48-45. Lion said it was a good thing we weren’t playing our spanking football game. I hadn’t even thought about it. We can do it for next week’s game.

Lion was hunkered under the covers while we watched TV last night. I wasn’t cold, but I wasn’t really up for anything anyway. I guess I was already starting to get achy from the shots without realizing it. I’ll take achiness that can be knocked out with Tylenol over the flu or COVID any day. A few friends have recently had COVID, and it knocked them on their butts for over a week. Yes, they were fully vaccinated. No, it’s not a perfect vaccine. But I will point out that if it was that bad with the vaccines, you can imagine how bad it would have been without them.

Tonight, or maybe even this afternoon, I hope we’re both in the mood for Lion fun. I don’t have anything planned, but it won’t take any time at all to whip out some clothespins or IcyHot. Yes, Lion still has that damn IcyHot Pro hanging over his head, ummm balls.
