First dose of Pfizer, done.

And thanks to the literal army of men in uniform behaving as if the vaccination site is a 1940s USO. Having a barrel-chested man in uniform casually drop that he likes my hair and “has biracial children” truly made getting stuck in the arm with a long needle less awful.
