Quarantine Sweet Quarantine

This is the Captain speaking. We’ve landed in Sydney. Now after spending 24 hours in a small space, you’re about to spending 14-days in an even smaller one.
I will never forget this room — even after shock therapy, large amounts of quaaludes, and injecting bleach into my veins.
The view was great. It was the thing that kept me sane during the two weeks, and the eleven imaginary people in the room with me agreed.
I didn’t expect the food to be amazing. Some days it was good, some days it was comedic.
Leigh and I could wave at each other. I’m on the 16th (top) floor. Look very carefully, you can see my hand waving out of one of the windows.
My sister is pretty amazing. Before leaving the states, she gave me an envelope with a note from here to read for every day I was in quarantine.
The guard on the other side of the door had to wonder where all the banging and grunting were coming from.
The day before exit, you get a wristband showing that you’re free to go tomorrow.
Freedom! Waiting for the uber to take me home.
