Daddy’s driving, so I’m on “Are we nearly there yet?” duty. It’s exhausting.
Deep breath. “Yes, honey?”
“How far away is the horizon?”
“As far as you can see.” I think about expanding but it would be nice to just be able to stare into the silence for a bit.
“Mr Jenkins said people’s horizons are closing in on them. He says soon we won’t be able to see over our own garden fences and we’ll be at war with our neighbours.”
Mental note for Monday: check the teacher’s mental health. For now…
“Let’s play I Spy.”
