Scary Day in Federal Prison
Too hot for groundhogs, but I had some unwanted excitement here at the camp.
So, I live by myself in a pod where there are 4 rooms. I came back from lunch and my neighbor was being packed out to go somewhere. He did not know where he was going. I helped him pack. They took him away, and I went about my business. I went to work and came back. There were yellow quarantine bags outside my room, and there were people in my room sanitizing it. The doctor rushed me away and gave me an extensive physical. He wouldn’t tell me what as going on. Needless to say, I was freaked out. It turns out that my neighbor has some rare strain of shingles and has been put in quarantine. They gave me the physical to see if I needed to be in quarantine with him. That’s the last thing I needed.
Scary day in Federal Prison for sure. The good thing? I am a day closer to home! That is a comforting thought.
