EXTRACT: Rarely have I ever run out of breath. Rarely was I called outside to push our clapped out car, or to climb the tree to get the cat, or to mow, or dig, or to even put the bin out.

I don't remember dad telling me I was no longer invited, nor do I remember telling him I no longer wanted to go.
