Ace's doctor's office has held several clinics over the past 2 months for flu shots. Did I know this? That is a negatory. He's just always gotten the shots when we go in for other things. Tonight is the last clinic, and it's all booked, and they don't know if they'll be getting any more vaccines in. "But call next week, and we'll see if we have any more in." Bokay.
Please nobody tell my mother-in-law. She thinks that the flu shot is the most important thing in the world and everyone should get one and not getting one is like dropping an atom bomb on Beijing WHAT IS THIS WORLD COMING TO? Seriously, when Drew talked to her last week, he told her that he hadn't gotten one yet and she climbed up his rectum for a full 3 minutes. Need I remind y'all that Drew is THIRTY-ONE YEARS OLD. When he finally said that he can get them for free from his company and that they hadn't done the shots yet, she stopped crawling on him and started to crawl on him about Ace getting HIS flu shot. Never have I wanted to bust out my anti-vax knowledge more than that moment (thimerosal! autism! reactions!) but I just told him to lie. Lie like a dog.
It's amazing how Drew has kept himself alive since he moved out of The Barbara's house without her constant guidance. I mean, if she didn't remind him 74 times during each conversation to be careful, he'd probably run his car into a tree, on purpose. If she didn't remind him to watch his money, we'd probably be bankrupt. If she didn't remind him to brush his teeth (no, I'm not kidding, people) they'd have probably fallen out by now.
Please, people, if you know me in 29 years and you see my apron strings still wound tightly through Ace's belt loops, smack me. Smack me hard.
