Yes, yes we are.
Every. Single. Time.
But he will chew on the furniture, your shoes, and lick you in the face while you try to sleep. Piddle on the floor when he gets excited, refuse to go outside to do his “business” when it’s raining. They both can be very loving and very annoying in their own special ways.
What if a person who cannot be vaccinated, such as my much beloved SISTER, who is a Hospice nurse by the way, took the necessary precautions for her situation, taking responsibility for herself. She cannot even take the flu vaccine. What if I choose to be as responsible as I can be without accepting the vaccine taking full responsibility for my own health just as she takes full responsibility for her own (not saying I have not, just that the right to or not should not be used as a weapon)? My Dad used to say you catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. The mixed messages and the distrust that has been sown plus the hate and vitriol, trying to shame and coerce people into getting a vaccine that the current administration said that would be hesitant about before winning their positions, then flipping to we all need to do it, does not sow the seeds of trust. Having a CDC representative on TV crying about how we have to stay with the mandates even after vaccination one week or we are all gonna die from the variant and then saying no, it’s ok the next does not sow the seeds of trust. I happily wear my mask, it’s a small thing. It’s not the masks. Did it, still do it, don’t care. Whether it works or not, studies are mixed on that as well. It’s the politicizing of absolutely everything including personal responsibility and the lack of critical thinking. Period. That is the craziness that I thought would end but has only become more rampant. My opinion, form your own.
Yet still, IF I choose not to get vaccinated and I die, it is MY choice. If I choose to get vaccinated and survive the virus, it is MY choice. If I get cancer and choose not to take treatment, it is MY choice. If I live or if I die, it is MY choice. Either way, it should be MY choice. Some in my family are vaccinated, some are not. I respect both. I just want to be able to choose without all of the drama. Those who are not vaccinated pose no risk to those that are, any more, and likely less, than those who choose the flu vaccine and those that do not. Many in my family are at as great a risk from the flu. That’s why I CHOOSE to get vaccinated every year. Just saying it should be choice, not mandate, not drama. I seriously hoped we had gotten rid of drama in January. Apparently not.
Exactly like my cat!
I have one that loves it and one that does not. Brother and sister but totally different in every way.
For me it’s the grocery store.
