Hah ! you is a mere beginner Bluey. Some of us has had them and...gets a B12 jab every 3 months as well !

Although I am not certain why because when the Q n A session begins prior to the jab, they gets very confused when I answers " No" as to the effects of the symptoms..which is actually true as I don't have any of them. However, they diligently alternate arms, even though the jabs is three months apart ! ...which I find hilarious.

I had a case of bad timing on the last jab. After I said “ow”, the needler pointed out he hadn’t stuck me yet.
Looking at them Aussie case stats, seems like omicron is pretty much compulsory down under.

Sorry to hear that Ascend Charlie. I hope you and your wife are feeling much better very soon.

Beginner? Beginner??? I'll have you know I got an anti-shingles vaccine AND a Hepatitis one plus anti-tetanus some time ago as well. AND ... I stabbed my finger with a fork the other day too. So there!

More practice needed?

Hah ! if you wants to indulge in oneupmanship, well two can play that game !

Try lifting a bowl out of the microwave and finding " it was a bit hot " as me fingers duly told me or opening a corn beef can, and the end of me finger at the same time (ok, possibly alcohol was involved as this was in the RAF) but even so, takes a lot of multi skilling to open both at the same time...

Hmmm ... I think that one might just take the prize Krystal! I shall bow out gracefully and declare you the winner ... but I do believe my simultaneous broken toe, smashed coffee cup and hot liquid splashes do deserve an honourable mention.

As it's you Bluey, ever generous please note, me that is.. I concedes defeat...this time !

And so to the "C word, as seen on tele last night !!...advert for 2022 no less !...one hesitates to suggest those responsible for making and airing it had their blood stream in some way diluted..

I might just be able to black cat your corned beef tin cut. I did the same, not the finger but the fleshy bit of the palm under the thumb - while 120 feet underwater. Still have the scar. For info, blood is black at that depth.

Many years ago, two of the young ladies in our landscape architects team, situated adjacent to the 4th floor tea point, congratulated me on my fast reactions - managing to say "oh s**t" before my cup smashed on the floor was, they opined, quite impressive.

Good reflexes there treadie! I'm impressed! Ninthace ... although I'm dying of curiosity, I'm not going to ask why you were opening a tin of corned beef at a depth of 120 feet! Nope. Not going there!

Some things are best not discussed. It stung a fair bit as I recall and you have no idea how gory the simplest gash can look when the blood from a cut mixes with a lot of water. As I emerged from the watery depths, women screamed, strong men fainted.

Well quite, after all, it ain't natural to be opening a can of corn beef 120 ft under the sea in the first place...and thus far, no reason for this surreal gastronomic exercise has been revealed...however, the key question ...as always with such unexpected occurrences ..." was lessons learned " ?.

The answer "never open a can 120ft below the sea " will not be accepted please note.

How about, if you are going to use borrowed twin steel tanks when you are used to single aluminium, double check your buoyancy if you do not want arrive at the bottom with a bit of a bang? No buoyancy compensators in those days.
