|Time for the Younglings to get their vaccination it was today. Having a particularly hard time, Harvey was. Afraid of needles he is.|
"Hold still, Harvey," the medical droid said, "If you stop squirming we'll be done before you know it."
"But I don't wanna! I hate needles!"
"There now, Harvey," I said, "be brave you must. Imagine Kenobi acting this way, can you?"
"Actually," the droid said, "he was due for a vaccination today too. Unfortunately, he crawled under the examination table and wouldn't come out. It took five of us to drag him out. Still, it certainly wasn't pleasant after that."
"Helping you are not," I told him.
"Harvey, a big boy you can be, can't you?"
"I don't wanna get a shot! No!"
"Be a baby do not. Over in a little bit it will be."
"No! It'll hurt!"
"Only a little it will hurt."
"I don't wanna! I don't wanna!"
"Harvey! Act like this a Jedi must not! Besides, if good you are, a lollipop you will get."
To stop squirming, that last part seemed to get him. Still, quiet he could not be. Still crying he was.
"There," the medical droid said, "all done."
"Waaa-, oh. That's it?" Harvey asked.
"Well," he said, "that wasn't so bad. Can I have my lollipop now?"
"Well," I sighed, "glad I am that over with that is."
"Actually, Master Yoda," the droid said, "my records indicate that you are due for a booster shot yourself."
"What?! No, impossible that is!"
"I'm afraid so."
"Some mistake there must be. Been a whole year since my last shot it has not."
"Oh, yes. One year and seven days, to be exact."
"Well, have to do this later we will. Very busy I am today."
"Just hop up on the table here. It won't take any time at all."
Ok, proud of that I am not. But needles I hate. At least, something for my trouble I got.
