Now that’s interesting! We would say bi-weekly to indicate every two weeks, so I used bi-daily to indicate every two days. We’d say twice daily if we meant...twice daily...! ;)

True. And "bi-monthly" in publishing certainly means every two months. I guess "bi-daily" just sounded weird.

(In medical terms, we would write "q2d.")

I’m betting the 2d in that is for two days...? Just a hunch. ;)

For those who keep up with Netflix's "Cells at Work", just imagine what hard WORK the vaccine must be for Memory immunity cells right now:

We were eligible for our second shot this past week, but were going to wait until we take our teenagers in next weekend, when they'll be eligible too. But the more I thought about it, the more anxious I became to just get 'er done. My wife and I discussed it last night, and decided to go for it. We were so excited to go, that we had trouble sleeping last night, so we got up at 5am to get in line for the drive-thru (there were about 35 cars ahead of us). By 9am, we had gotten our second doses! So grateful.

Very glad to hear that Rand! :)
You can’t just have your characters announce how they feel! That makes me feel angry!
