A Love Letter to my COVID Vaccine Buddy.

To the guy who sat next to me as we got our Covid vaccines at the CVS on Holt, I just want to say those eyes of yours are the most beautiful ones I’ve seen all year.

I hope I see you again in 28 days, but if not, I’m glad our paths crossed for those 20 minutes as we waited for a possible allergic reaction together.

So far, I think I’m in the clear.

As I am eight minutes ahead of you, I think you will be fine too.

I hear the first dose is okay.

It’s the second one that may have more side effects.

I am sure though we will both be fine.

I know we both wanted the other vaccine, but we are both grateful to be vaccinated and ready to get back to work so we can continue helping people.

If our paths cross again in 28 days, please smile again.

I just want to see those eyes of your twinkle one more time.

If life has other plans, I wish you the best.

Those beautiful eyes of yours will most definitely cheer up the hearts of many patients.

It certainly cheered up mine.

If you ever want to get coffee, let me know.

I’ll leave you my number under the nurse’s chair eight minutes before you sit down.

If not, thank you for showing me those eyes.

It felt good to see kindness again, in person.

Sincerely yours,

Your Covid Vaccine Buddy
