“All units, copy guarded for a call.” Just in case scanner land is listening.
As a younger man, I burned the midnight oil. Now, partly because of my occupation, I rise before the sun. Days off will find me enjoying a cup of coffee and watching the sun rise. Years ago while vacationing on the East Coast, I still woke up at my normal time, but it was an hour earlier for me due to the time difference. Two hours of blissful, relaxing contemplation before my wife joined me.
The Almighty Google is a rabbit hole that will find you chasing topics “that you won’t believe really happened” for the next hour when all you needed was a quick answer to a question.
Her “I remember!” comment (with exclamation point) makes me curious about the events of that day. She’s a coy one herself.
Well played, JJ.
Good story, Robb!
Initially, I was hesitant about the vaccine, but after much consultation with my cardiologist, who is also a chemist, about the vaccine and taking into consideration my age, health, and occupation, I decided to get the vaccine. It was my choice and no one else’s. If someone wants to get it, that is their choice just as if someone doesn’t want to get it.
Another factor in my decision was my occupation. The staffing is at such a point that I decided to get the vaccine in Phase 1b in the interest of not having to quarantine if exposed as this would further burden my co-workers. Due to the nature of the work I do, we have not worn masks the entire time and in that time only one person contracted the virus. I believe we have been fortunate in that aspect.
Whether a person chooses to get the vaccine or not, their decision should be respected. No one should be shamed or made to feel guilty about their choice.
All that bloviation translates to I’m unique, just like everyone else.
Kirk is wise to avoid a situation far more tenuous than the Kobayashi Maru or even attempt to change the conditions.

Wasn’t all that bad for me and I count myself fortunate. Had to cancel a couple of trips and a graduation ceremony, but was able to take a few trips as well. Have kept working the entire time and was even fortunate enough to have Christmas off. Was also able to attend church, which is important to me, although not always in person but through creative measures. All in all, pretty good.
