There will be a day in the future when I will race up the hallway to answer the door as soon as I hear you ring the doorbell. You will no longer be a child in this vision of a distant future – the printed pyjamas and the tousled tresses and the gap from the missing tooth will have been replaced by permanent portents of an adult world. I will wonder why I was so weary to tidy up after yet another sleep-over that involved stuffed toys, midnight treats and clothes on the floor all over the house even as I wonder if your memories of the days of yore are the same as mine.

But now, as you giggle and ring the doorbell yet again and your friend asks “Anyone home?”, I continue to drink my coffee and read the newspaper and answer with a “Nope, come back another day”.
