Turns out the cold I am getting over is no cold at all. I just rapid-tested positive for COVID-19. It is Omicron. Worry not, as the symptoms – courtesy of my being fully vaccinated plus a booster – are those of a minor head cold. Actually, I got this 'cold' last week but did not realize until today that it was something more.Get the vaccine, folks. I know this post breaks by Fantasy Only, no real-world affairs, rule, but I have spoken of the Pandemic once before and feel this matter is important enough to speak of it again. Get vaccinated, folks.
Side note: I can never hear the word Omicron without thinking of how Star Trek's Lieutenant Commander Data was constructed on the planet Omicron Theta.
