Flu Shot

Ugh, got a flu shot for the first time a couple hours ago and feel a little achy. Is this normal?

x136 the evil flu shot clowns seldom kill. scar for life, physically and mentally, without a doubt. kill, seldom, but not unheard of.

I'd consider it if it could be laced into my coffee without interfering with the caffeine.

Achy arm eh? You'll probably wake up tomorrow naked, except for your shoes, in the city park and have no idea how you got there.

Mine was free. Wife had to pay $23 since she's not an employee.

Glad to know I'll only wake up as a zombie tomorrow.

Makes me glad we started watching "The Walking Dead" series. Now I know what I'm in for.

At least I'll still have my shoes. My feet hurt when I try to walk distances barefoot.

+1

In addition to a sore arm, I had a headache for a couple of days afterward. Ibuprofen helped quite a bit.

It does absolutely nothing to me. Plus it costs us a mere $75 for the other members of my family. Apparently someone re branded the word free.
Mine is free from my company.

Unfortunately, still at work. Will have to wait about three hours.

After work, a couple friends and I are thinking about going to the Wynkoop.

I finished mine an hour ago. So darn good.
One should never be able to see through their beer.

No zombie feelings yet. I don't ache anymore though. Is that the first sign of zombieness? Loss of feeling?

I'm going to look for Milk Stout at whole foods today.

I plan to get a flu shot on monday, so I'll probably need it.

I don't know if the Yuengling Black & Tan I have is strong enough to be effective flu shot medicine. I can kind of see through it if I hold it up to the light.

The darker the better to combat the flu shot.

You might ask and see if they have a no flu shot.
