"Have you gotten your flu shot?"
"Flu Shot Clinic this weekend."
"The shot will cost less than the illness."
There seem to be signs everywhere, reminding everyone to take care of themselves and take the preventive steps to keep that blasted influenza at bay.
Every fall, Robb got a flu shot. Actually, every fall he said, "I'll get mine when you get yours." So I got mine; he got his.
A couple of weeks ago, when I first saw one of the ads for the flu shots, my instincts jumped to remind Robb to get his. He won't need one this year.
Those posters remind me of how this whole thing started. They remind me that we did everything we could do. They remind me that some curveballs come out of left field, and there's just nothing you can do to brace yourself or avoid them.
I don't know if I'll get one this year. I honestly don't know.
