Tetris shot

Got a tetanus booster Friday during my annual doctor visit. Wow, my body did not like that! I got vaguely flulike symptoms and a bizarre inflamation/ bruise/ soreness around the injection site (aka, my butt) that is still there 3 days later. Ow ow ow.

If the doctor says it's time for a tetanus shot (every 10 years, remember), try to schedule it during "downtime" or time when you need a convenient excuse to avoid some activity based on sickness/soreness.

But at least now I can suck on rusty nails with impunity....
