A summer day with the grandkid   America - all of it

Started Jul-28 by David Finkel(ish) (mahjong54); 492 views.

Grandson: Grandpa? What's that on your shoulder? 

Me: (Turning my shoulder forward to see what he is pointing at) Oh, that's a scare from my smallpox vaccination. 

Grandson: Grandma has one too. 

Me: Yes, Grandma has one also, everyone our age has one

Note - I haven't seen his grandmothers bare arms in 20 years, and hope I never do again (We divorced in 1998). 

Grandson: (Twists and turns and looks, goes to mirror and looks) Grandpa? How come I don't have a small puck vaccination? (Kids are cute with their mis-pronunciations - you should hear him say "spaghetti" or "helicopter"). 

I thought about that a moment, not really sure when they stopped doing that vaccination where there's a round scar from a circular pattern of several pricks, it used to be everyone, then it was some, now that I think about it, none of the younger kids have em. Then my mind returned to the current vaccine in the news...

Me: You don't have a smallpox vaccine scar because grandma and I got them. 

I am going to let that thought sit with my grandson as the current vaccine drama continues to unfold......

It's exhausting.

Do these "freedom loving" vaccine protestors drink and drive without seatbelts while texting?

Years ago, the thing around here was motorcycle helments.
