Welcome to the Zoo

This is just a small snippet of one of the three, count ‘em, three long lines that I stood in yesterday. Outside. In the hot sun. For two hours.

So what was all the excitement for? Were we waiting to meet Angelina and Brad? Oh no, this minor riot, complete with security, a ton of little kids running completely wild, a camera crew from Fox News, and an amazing number of attempts at fraud (apparently punishable by a huge fine) - this zoo was the line for the swine flu vaccination. Aren’t you sorry you missed all this fun?

But what the heck, I’ve now been immunized for both the swine flu and seasonal flu. Which, apparently, is worth more than gold at the moment. And it only cost me $10. Well, and those two hours of my life which I’ll never see again…
