Cleaning out the attic – nine parts looking through old things, one part pretending to convince myself that I can throw something away. Mum gave me a box of my old school things last month, and I’d been meaning to look through it, so I decided I’d better do it before I forget again.
Right near the top of the box, below some report cards and a drawing of a ‘Doog’ from when I was 4, I found an envelope.
Well, I’m a little past that now, I thought glumly. I slowly pried open the seal, curious to see what it would be.
“What would you ask your future self?” read the title. It sounded like a good laugh, what my younger self would write. A few seconds later, though, I felt bad for thinking it; remembering how I was as an awkward young girl, I decided that, even though it would make no difference, I’d write the answers just for her.
I think I’ll dust off my old bike and ride it to work tomorrow.
