It had been a long journey. Long. Many things I don’t want to talk about. But I am here. I’d not set out to be here, just not there. We were divided up: men and women. By age. And then, when they knew our professions and backgrounds, by class too. The interviews were all about the future, the things we wanted to do and be. it was nice to see a future, to imagine the journey ahead. They said our new bands would track that journey, help us realise it. Mine has just suggested something I’d like in Aisle 3.
