"I'm going to give you vaccines for Typhoid, Diphtheria / Tetanus, Hep A and Malaria."
"I also have these pills for painful diarrhea."
"We also have an HIV vaccine."
"I was only kidding about the last one."
When a doctor makes a joke, it never feels right to laugh. You just sit there, apologetic for no good reason. I got all my shots today for my trip to Southeast Asia. Chris is a seasoned world traveller, so he's already immune to everything (including bullets). I, on the other hand, needed fortification. I got four shots in the arm, each one as sharp as a fist. I also got some semi-hallucinogenic Malaria pills.
"Take one every 3 minutes for the rest of your life."
"Can do. Is that a joke?"
So now I'm vaccinated! Well, I will be in a week and a half when most of the shots actually kick in. Probably four days after I get stabbed with a railroad spike.
