“Did you make your reservation yet, Jerry?” Annie asked.
“Well,” Jerry responded, “I thought they had shuttered the museum due to the statewide stay-at-home order.”
“Actually, the governor has opened up some businesses and services across the state, including museums, as long as proper protocols are observed,” Annie said. “So they’ve moved forward the date of the museum’s reopening.”
“That’s great, Annie,” Jerry said. “I bet Joseph must be thrilled.”
“Yes, he’s thrilled,” Annie said, “although he’s still having trouble getting his head around it. It’s all a bit of an abstraction to him.”
