Parameters

As a frontline healthcare worker I received the vaccine yesterday. Grateful. As we roll into 2021 I hope the vaccine doesn’t get A) politicized, and/or B ) turned into a tool for fear-mongering conspiracy theorists.

Side note #1: mild headache, sore arm, dry mouth. And a developing third nipple.

Side note #2: I don’t think Mitch needs the vaccine. I’m fairly certain he’s not human.

Swings

Some people have assumed I’m enduring a personal loss. I’m not. This storyline just sort of emerged, probably from the almost-daily death I witness at the hospital in our COVID times, and reflecting on the grief families are feeling, often accentuated during the holidays. 2020 can suck an egg.
