Fell Back

I was sitting on my couch, watching TV when I fell through a hole in time. I landed in the backyard of the home I lived in when I was a kid. And there I was, five years old, playing with my Tonka trucks in the grass. I looked up from my toys and saw me, sitting on the lawn, looking back.

The current me said, “Hi. This is going to seem weird, but it’s me, I mean you…Brooks, when you’re older.”

The 5 year old me said, “Yeah, I was thinking I recognized you…Why are you here?”

The now me said, “It’s just one of those things.”

The younger me said, “Okay. Do you want to play?”

I said, “Yes.”

We played with the trucks. I forgot how much fun it is.
