Can I fit in there?


You’re playing hide and seek in a house full of new furniture. Ten… Nine… Eight… You come across an empty cupboard, “I can fit in there,” you say to yourself.

Five… Four… Three… You force yourself inside, folding your legs and squeezing your stomach in. Two… One… Coming! Ready or not!

You softly close the cupboard. It’s tight but actually you’re really impressed, you didn’t know you could still bend like this. As you reacquaint yourself with your kneecaps, you realise you’re struggling to breathe, but shallow breaths are less likely to give you away anyway.

Three hours later, once the fire department arrives, you realise the question should’ve been,”Can I get out?”
