Twenty years ago, I had a friend who contracted polio from the vaccine. She struggled to walk with crutches and underwent many painful surgeries.
And no one said to her, "But, but, but...your polio would've been so much worse if you hadn't had the vaccine."
Twenty years ago we were too smart to say such cruel drivel. But now!?!
I didn't even think of it. Didn't crack the Top 10. But this isn't 2004 and we're not in Kansas anymore, Toto. Now the jibby-jibby-jab is one of the first things potential employers mention and I, being disgustingly honest, am losing job after job by replying with just two little words: "religious exemption."
It all began one fine Autumn day when the perfect job was mine. Well, almost mine.
