The Days Before Childhood
Before now, before you’re here, we’re getting the world ready. We’ve softened all the corners. We’ve taken all the chemicals out of everything we’ve ever made and used them to make fireworks to mark your arrival. We’ve invented leaves that fall 20% slower and are 100% more fun to fall into. We made new colours. We made snow. We made summer holidays. We’ve even created something called a “puppy” and a “kitten” and you may choose which one you prefer when you get here. Which is where we are now. Before you are born.
