In a little while, I'm going to the eyecare place to pick up my new glasses. They ask that customers either wear a mask or bring their vaccination cards. I don't actually have a vaccination "card", I have a vaccination "cheesy slip of paper". I don't know if the shooters ran out of cards and just made paper photocopies to then fill in, but that's what I have.
We were vaccinated at work, and one of my coworkers left her vaccination cheesy slip of paper in her work scrubs and put them in the laundry. So much for that "proof of vaccination". But she requested and received an actual card from the pharmacy that supplied our vaccines.
At first, I was all, "Oh NO, you WASHED it??". But when she got her card, I was all, "Aw, I want one".
I never got one. Maybe I should? Last time I went to the eye docs, I took a picture of the cheesy slip of paper and showed that when I checked in and was allowed in without a mask, but they'd prefer the card for some reason. Maybe I should put in the effort.
I'm thinking the COVID vaccine should've been the heftier gun version - like the smallpox. Your proof of vaccination is the tell-tale scar. My scar is still obvious, I think I was in the last class of kindergartners to get that badge of courage. Anyone else have a smallpox vaccine scar?
Meanwhile, watching any of the Olympics? I haven't watched any yet, just catch a few of the headlines each day whether I want to or not. Thinking of my vision shortcomings, I could totally relate to this capture:
I may never win Olympic gold, but yes, I can relate. Scoreboards and everything else are so far away.
Here's the full reaction:
Yeah, she's one of us.
