Tomorrow is Dukoral vaccine day for me…YUCK! I think this is the worst part of preparing for my trip to Africa. Dukoral is an oral vaccine to prevent traveller’s diarrhea and to me it tastes like the fluoride rinse from the dentist only way more potent, and that stuff makes me gag so you can imagine what this stuff does to me. (Although I have been told by others than it is “no big deal”…what can I say…other than maybe I just have way better taste buds than they do…hahaha)
Last year my boys got the biggest kick out of watching me try to drink the stuff…it went something like this…take a sip….GAG….take a sip..…GAG……this went on for over half an hour….hahahaha….okay maybe a little longer....hahahaha.......
My son asked me when I have to take it this year and I said Saturday and he was sooo excited as his friend is sleeping over and now they both get to watch me go through this whole process…..hmmm…..I think someone might just be a story teller like his Mama!
11 more sleeps till Ottawa! :)
