My Second Covid Shot/Military Shots

In my lifetime this should be the only Covid shot(s) I need. A few years back, the military gave me two doses of anthrax shots. And looking further back, I’ve gotten about seventeen shots from the military for everything from malaria to the plague to polio, to hepatitis B to even Japanese encephalitis.

Right after my covid shot today I ride over to Costco to prime my immune system. I’ll probably still need some Tylenol to go with the soup. According to the information that was being passed out today; within 2 hours your arm should start to get sore; then expect flu-like symptoms overnight, and chills and body aches the following day.

So far it’s been three hours, and no change. The soup must now be working.

For centuries, chicken soup has been considered a remedy for colds. In my Cubano household while growing up, my mom believed in Vicks instead. The science behind the soup is the carrots, celery, and onion that provide antioxidants, vitamins A and C, which are proven to strengthen the immune system and help prevent viruses. The chicken itself provides the protein, which also supports the immune system and can help you feel better faster, and the noodles provide the carbs, which help you feel full.

Fortunately for mom, she never lived long enough to learn, that her one cure for all that ails you, Vicks VapoRub. … is now debunked. It contains camphor which is toxic if swallowed or absorbed into the body and the manufacturers do in fact warn that VapoRub should not be applied in or near the nostrils. Mom lived to be 87 and I’m certain allot of Vicks went up her nose like nose candy.

I’m now priming my immune system at Costco, by buying just one item; a four pound container of chicken soup, made from that Costco rotisserie chicken. And, since I can never leave, well enough alone; when I arrive home on my motorcycle, I take the container of chicken soup from my top case, and immediately go to work on it.

From our refrigerator out comes the Spanish Manzanilla olives, the tender cactus nopalitos, the La Victoria green sauce and a lemon from our tree. From the pantry I find the extra-virgin olive oil and salt.

About two pounds of soup is now boiling on the stove top. What goes into my soup is all dependent, on what extra ingredients, I find in our refrigerator.

Remember HIV, remember the Zeka Virus, and hopefully, within the next year, we also won’t be talking about covid.

Bon Appetit!
