Mack is sitting in his room writing in his Daytonavirus journal.
“It’s been a while since I’ve written in here, but I have been thinking a lot and I’m getting frustrated. I’m tired of being home and not going anywhere. I’m ready to go see Nana, PopPop, Auntie Mona, Elijah and Daniel! I want to see more friends, but I can’t. What should I do journal? I want to go to a restaurant, but I can’t… We can only CAN’T! And I’m sick of it! It’s been a month since all of this began and Mom and Dad doesn’t know when this is going to end. I want my life back… BUT I do enjoy Dad being home. He’s taken us on walks and bike rides.
I smell cookies. I think I’m gonna go now. I like cookies.”
Mack closed his journal and placed it on his desk. He turned to the stairs and went towards the kitchen where Mom, Dad, and Cheese were making fresh peanut butter and jelly cookies!
