i'd watch myself learning to ride a bike, falling over and scraping my knees in one screen, while the three years older version of me flies along a gravel road without an accident on the next screen over.
i'd watch my first day of junior high and my first day of senior high at the same time. one screen would show me with long straight blonde hair, ridiculously large ears and foofy bangs, and the other with a shorter haircut that hides my ears and doesn't make me look as much like a scraggly homeless child.
i'd watch my graduation from high school and my move to regina at the same time. one screen would show me leaving my whole life behind to go who-knows-where, and being quite fearful about it, and the other would show me meeting the guy who is going to be my future husband.
and then i'd get to valentine's day, and i'd watch my 19 year-old self waking up in bed alone, wallowing in teenage heart-ache and my 22 year-old self waking up to my husband, swallowing my homemade heart-eggs.
