Got my #FluShot today! πŸŽ‰ Because honestly why would I volunteer to be a willing host for ANY disease if I can walk into a Walgreens, fill out a form, and get the immune-system cheat-sheet for free? (Check your local pharmacy or doctor’s office to find out where to get yours!)

En route to @VanderbiltU today! I’ll be giving the Department of Physics & Astronomy colloquium tomorrow. (Feels weird to be at the airport as a passenger!)
