From a Distracted Life

Observed at preschool:

Four children play “House” together

In the wooden and plastic “House” designated corner of the classroom

Of the littlest students with the brightest of futures.

‘Mom’ sits at the round wooden table, looking at the plastic toy cell phone.

‘Dad’ sits on the bench (named “the couch”), watching a plastic TV.

‘Child’s head is in the little wooden refrigerator as he looks at wooden food.

‘Baby’ crawls on the carpet and ‘cries’ as his role dictates.

No one speaks, listens or pays attention.
