Remember when

She remembers when she was a small child. There are rows and rows of adult-sized chairs all around. Her parents are seated in two of them with luggage around their legs. Her brother is at the drinking fountain across the way.

Above, there is a television screen. There is text scrolling across the bottom of the screen. She stares at it for a while but it’s boring. The background reads “CNN”. Most of the words are too large for her to understand but there are just heads and shoulders on the screen, obviously talking. She goes back to playing with her toy airplane, landing it on the waves of carpet and mountains of armrests.

Back to the present moment, she opens her eyes. The Republican debate is playing on the television. The scrolling text, the heads on shoulders. Now it’s entertaining. There’s a swirly carpet and armrests but no toy plane is present.
