The Slice

Asked and answered

A mail carrier rang the doorbell Saturday morning.

He had a package for my wife requiring a signature. I held the door while she took care of that.

The carrier, a guy we both like, asked what our plans were for the day.

Thinking of one of the things I hoped to accomplish, I told him I would be getting a shingles shot.

We talked a bit more about this and that. And he asked me a question.

"So the shingles shot...is that so you won't get it?"

Yes, I said.

For a moment I found myself wondering if he thought anyone would get such a shot so they would come down with the potentially painful condition.

But he probably meant "Do you already have it or are you simply trying to prevent it?"

So I was glad I hadn't given him a wiseguy answer.
