I'm still doing things around the house to get ready to leave in a few days. It's amazing how fat and lazy. The Arctic Fox gets when it hasn't moved in a while. Many pounds of things have accumulated out of thin air and I have no idea how they got here.
There are books and magazines that I don't remember buying, tools that I can only remember using once, and things in the refrigerator that I have no intention of eating. I'm not sure how this happens but it appears to happen every time I stop for too long.
I'm working on the theory that if I stay in one place too long unwanted, and unneeded things are able to locate me and sneak into the trailer when I leave the door open. But if I move every once in a while useless junk is unable to find me so the Arctic Fox stays light and agile, or at least as light and agile as a portly Arctic Fox can be.
I'm not sure if that's the correct theory, but it makes more sense than my first idea which is there are gnomes living in my basement making useless junk from the endless supply of sawdust and dust bunnies that I find on the floor every time I stop for the day.
About the most useful thing I did today was go to Walgreens and get a flu shot. Back when I lived in a house that was unable to move, I had an actual doctor that I went to when I needed some pity or a flu shot. But now that I'm highly mobile I don't have anyone I can go to for pity, but there are lots of places that will give you a flu shot.
I don't know if the flu shot is keeping me from getting the flu, but I haven't had the flu since I've been taking the shots. But then again I can only remember having the flu twice in my whole life, so I don't know if there is a legitimate correlation between getting the flu and getting the shot.
Back a long time ago when I was in the Air Force we were forced to take a flu shot. Quite often we would be lured into an auditorium, supposedly for a mandatory commanders call and before we could leave the doors would be locked and we would be forced to take a flu shot.
Now the reason the government had to do this to us was not because we hated to take shots, because Lord knows we all had shot records that were longer than Rosie O'Donnell's grocery list, but it was well known that the flu shots usually made a lot of us sick, and I was often one of the unlucky ones.
But things are better today. I don't have to be forced to take a flu shot and I've never felt bad after taking one, so my only concern nowadays is not getting the flu in the two weeks it takes for the flu shot to take effect, and the best way I know of to do that is to stay away from school aged children and stay out of Walmart.
