We got tested Saturday, made an appointment online, went to Balloon Fiesta Park, through a visually confusing maze of bright orange pylons with white stripes on their tops strung with strings of car lot multi-colored pennants through a checkpoint manned by National Guard troops, got a small flat plastic bag of stuff out of a window with one of those old-people can-grabbers, then to one of three little shacks looked like outhouses where someone behind plastic drapes told us to open the bottle take the swab and put it in our cheek- oh man, we were so happy we didn’t have to have somebody jam Q-tips up into our skulls… she said it was 10% more effective as well, so yay to that.

OK, we both tested NEGATIVE. We’re good for now.
