CATNIPS on Flu Shots 12/09/2009
I got my flu shots today--regular and H1N1 (one in each arm). Some people don't think flu shots are a good idea, and many don't trust the new H1N1 vaccine. I work in a high-risk environment, interacting with grade school teachers and specialists, so I decided to go ahead with getting the shots. What would Bogie and Bacall do?
BOGIE: Shots?!!! Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.
BACALL: Oh Bogie, you're such a crybaby. Afraid of a little needle. Come here, Bogie, and sample my needle-sharp claws. I don't think Mom should have gotten the shots. I want her to get the flu and stay home sick so I can snuggle up to her feverish body. And I bet she doesn't feel so good tomorrow after having two shots! But then again, I do want her to be able to go to work and earn my cat crunchies. I get shots at the veterinarian once a year, and I don't even cry!! Of course, I wail in the car all the way to the vet's and all the way back, but you have to expect a little drama from a drama queen. I guess we'll find out if Mom's shots work or not. The odds are always 50-50: either they work or they don't. If she didn't get the shots and she got the flu, who would she have to blame but herself? Me, I would blame Bogie. I blame him for everything. That works for me!
