Naida listened to the television and heard someone say they were, ‘Campaigning as the Mayor of Stress Town.‘
Most adults would have clearly understood the meaning of the words spoken but Naida was only five and did her best to decipher the words she’d heard.
“Where is Stress Town?”
Her mother hadn’t heard the television, “I don’t think there’s such a place.”
“I want to go camping there. A man said he was camping in Stress Town. It looked like a nice place.”
The words were repeated on the television, this time mother hearing.
Mother smiled, “I know a better place we can go.”
