A Shot in the Light

Yesterday I received my flu vaccine shot at the University of Alberta hospital.

"There, you're good to go," the nurse said after jabbing me in the arm.

"You don't want me to wait around for fifteen minutes in case I faint?" It was the protocol I was used to.

"Well," she said, "You're in the middle of a hospital. If you keel over, someone's bound to help you."

"Oh yes," I said.
