I stopped at the Adult High School on my way home from work and got my flu shot today. Filled out the forms and was ushered straight to a nurse. I assured her that I have no allergies and have never had trouble with a flu shot. She told me take tylenol but not aspirin if my arm hurts afterward and slid the needle in. Barely felt it.
She reminded me that I was supposed to wait 15 minutes and I said, "you bet," but my plan was to leave as soon as she was looking the other way. Until I saw the table with crayons and pictures of Gerri the Immunization Giraffe. I suppose it wouldn't hurt to colour one of these pictures, I thought, and if it takes 15 minutes, that'll be okay.
I have a tip for Ottawa Public Health - Either get better crayons or get a drawing that is less finely detailed. I tried to stay inside the lines but it was freaking impossible.
You know, when I was a kid it was clear to everyone that I would never be an artist because I couldn't draw inside the lines with crayons. Well who can?
Are there still adults out there who comment negatively on crayon colouring that goes outside the lines? If so, I'd like names and addresses so I can send them nasty letters.
