    MrsPK says I also need a distemper shot. Not sure about that.
    Please post a pic of you wearing the cone of shame.

    My friend bought a very large house for just him and his wife. I told him, “ you two will probably go days without seeing each other”. He responded, “that’s the plan”.

    Define "excessive."

    On second thought -- don't.

    Be careful, much worse things may happen to you. A recording of you saying it may be publicly released and the next thing you know you’re POTUS.

    Finally got my Shingrix shot #1 yesterday afternoon. My arm was sore that evening, and then both late yesterday and today I've had a racing heart rate, my face is flush, and I am very, very tired. However, I receive a tapered dose of methylprednisolone at the same time to help take care of a nerve problem in my back, so I can't tell if my reaction is to the steroid, the Shingrix, or a combination of the two. In any case, I set my appointment to go back after the first of the year for shot #2. The doc said it's 50/50 as to whether or not it's worse the second time, so I'll plan accordingly.

    yeah, who knows? My wife's first shot laid her out for several days, both my shots were fine...it's just a good idea to not make any important plans for several days after you get a Shingrix shot to make sure you can wallow in bed if need be.

    My mother (age 69) recently had both doses of the Shingrix vaccine. I had warned her of the possible side effects. The first dose didn't effect her at all. The second did bother her a bit. She said she was achy all over and mildly nauseous for a day. However, the symptoms resolved fairly quickly.

    She had a case of shingles about 10 years ago and unequivocally stated that 24 hrs of not feeling well was FAR better than having shingles.

    yeah, you really don't want the shingles...I was lucky enough to get an ultra mild case some years ago, which was found and treated very very early. Ugly ailment.

    Went to get my flu shot this afternoon, went ahead and got the second Shingrix while I was there. Good weekend to sit home and mellow.

    I got a sour. To match my disposition.

    (feeling pretty much okay now, but last time the second 24 hours was worse than the first. Thanks to those kind souls who have asked!)

    Look forward to the virtual pub zoom at 4pm (info on beer thread) to see those who join! Can’t wait to show off my costume. All are welcome (unless you piss off fuse, in which case you may get tossed like — well, like ChatBot tosses me at Crazietalk!)

    Really, really hoping it's more than a pair of socks.

    I once went to a Halloween party in a sweatshirt and sweatpants, with socks glued partially all over it. I was going as “static cling.”

    I just received an e-mail ad for wine made in amphorae (or amphoras, if you prefer). Does that count?

    How about today? This is why I started the thread back in February...I did fine, but my wife was very sick for more than a day, very unpleasant (and somewhat unexpected).
