Re: Not so funny real life Capt Trips thread

Today is the first day I'm eligible (1C in PA) and I'm set up for Wednesday morning for some one-stop shotting (J&J) at the grocery store pharmacy. Which feels good after opening of little league for the two little ones and lots more (masked) people than I've been around in a while.
