…get a tetanus booster in the arm again, though I will in 10 years’ time. Maybe writing it down will lodge it in the old memory bank–I got a tetanus booster in August of 2009!
Next time, when the nurse says, “Hmm–we don’t have a record of you getting a tetanus booster. Has it been more than ten years?” I won’t blithely answer, “I’m sure it has. Let’s do it today, can we?” And then realize two days later, when my arm is swollen and cranky and ouchy, and my in-house doctor says, “Oh, yeah, that can happen when you get tetanus boosters closer than two years apart.”
