My husband went to the bloodmobile to give blood today. When he got home, he said, “I had to wait in line an hour, they couldn’t find a vein, and there weren’t any Nutter Butters.”
“My day was worse,” I said. “The TV went off while Mama (my mother lives with us) was watching Bonanza, she spilled her Ensure on the carpet, I tried to go to the grocery store to get some more Ensure, and found out I lost my car keys.”

Your article has made me determined to check in with some people a few weeks or months after they have buried their loved ones.
My partner and I were excited. A small pharmacy in Walhalla, South Carolina, had called to confirm that we could schedule an appointment for the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine.

I much prefer the English word

A miracle of achievement.
We sit on them, we wiggle them,
They should evoke our praise,
Since whether dressed in thongs or jeans
They draw the lustful gaze.
And did you know that men account
For fully 10 percent

My popularity has soared during the pandemic, which might be why I am getting snarky.
Truthfully, I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed. Popularity is not all it’s cracked up to be.
