growing up

1 Comment

the first school disco, and he’s only 5. it was dark, there were coloured lasers slicing through the haze of the smoke machine, it was loud with current pop music (but why do they still do the limbo and YMCA!!??) and the 5 to 8 year olds moved around the room in hand-gripping pairs looking for their friends, all decked out in glowsticks. the girls danced in tiny dress-up shoes and little handbags, and the boys spun around on their bottoms, and examined each other’s gelled-up hair and Ben10 watches. it was a late night, we didn’t get home until 7.15pm.
