Mom x
Heading to the gate now. They took your fathers hip flask with your
medicine so he's grouchy :) You'll have to make him some more
Are you ok there honey? Are the CDC looking after you?
CDC morons won't hear me out Mom! Said to stay out of the way & go
back to the bus. They think because I don't have my doctorate yet
that I'm unqualified. But I got proof PANACEA POWDER works: Me,
and a picture of old flabby me! Don't worry though Mom. Found a
bitten girl hiding in the buses who was obviously happy for me to
save her! Once she wakes up, I'll have LITERAL LIVING PROOF it
works! Safe flight mom, I'll see you soon :)
