Silly me. Last year, when the pandemic hit, we dutifully canceled travel and took precautions and hunkered down. We washed our hands, and bought and wore masks, and learned how to make crumpets and how to Zoom. Our family indefinitely postponed my stepdad’s memorial service and my brother’s wedding; my husband Mark and I even put off dental checkups and grocery shopping trips to the mainland. And all through it, I kept thinking, Oh, I cannot wait for there to be a vaccine.
“When there’s a vaccine, we will do all those things again!”
As I say. Silly me.
There’s a vaccine now! Several of them! Very promising ones!
If only…we could get one.
