because yellow fever is good for no one

This morning I left Boston at 5:30 am. That's right, 5:30 AM. Why so early you ask? Because I needed to get back to NJ in time for an 11 am appointment to have needles stuck in my arm. It was great fun. Actually, it wasn't bad at all. I needed to get vaccinated against Yellow Fever and Typhoid for my up coming Ecuador trip. The Typhoid shot hurt because it went into the muscle but the Yellow Fever one just stung a lot. But I tell you what, both of those are nothing compared to what would happen if I actually contracted either of the two diseases. You know, lots of pain and possibly death. Yay for modern science! Think about it: vaccinations are shots OF THE DISEASE! And they keep us from GETTING the disease! We live in the future.
