Situation

Maisie had to skip school because she was sick with the flu. The doctor advised her to stay home until she is given a clean bill of health.

Dialogue

Maisie:              Mom, I wonder when I can go back to school. I already missed so many quizzes.

Mom:                Nah. I don’t think it will be any time soon. You’ve only been away for two days.

Maisie:              So, when do you think I can resume school?

Mom:                Sweetheart, you are sick with the flu and it is considered highly contagious.

Maisie:              Ugh! I’m already getting bummed out here, mom.

Mom:                It’s alright. It’s not going to be much longer. We will visit your doctor this Friday for a follow up check.

Maisie:              And if I’m given a clean bill of health, can I already go to school next Monday?

Mom:                Pretty much.
