  1. It’s nice having a government that is so well organized for distribution. Like a well oiled machine…

    Wait… Umm. How many doses? When? Where? Who can get it?

    You know… Nevermind.

    1. Thank goodness. Everything is going to be USA okay!

      I’m in the of least concern group, I’m scheduled to get my vaccination in 2023 ๐Ÿ‘

      Which is fine. I’ve heard once you get the vaccine and use the 5G network your head explodes.

    1. That’s why I’m here; testing the waters ๐Ÿ˜‰
      I think this form might work better for more silly/nonsense content. That being said, I doubt I will attempt another ๐Ÿคฃ
