What a difference a jab makes, twenty-four little hours…as the song goes so did my symptoms. Exactly twenty hours after my first jab, I developed a low-grade fever, ringing in my ears, sore arm, headache and weakness that lasted twenty-four hours. I was grateful that my symptoms were mild. My second dose is in four weeks. I can hardly wait.
Sending emails to our friends, sharing my good news was sheer joy. Seeing them and sharing laughs is what we miss. Imagine, sitting at a table together playing bridge after dinner. Listening to lively music and dancing. Resurrecting the good old days. My husband suggested the possibility of having small dinner parties. There would be strict rules: only four guests at a time and each person would bring their completed vaccination card declaring they had had their recommended jabs.
Next the title of our invitation: “Feeling Pricked?” or “Pricks Only,” we both agreed on the latter.
