I think you start with a square.
Or is that origami?
Anyway, fold it down the middle
Then make

An angle?

From one corner, no, yes like that.

Wait.
That’s not right.

Okay.
A -full- piece of paper.
Fold it in half, then fold it in half again.
Now open that part and make an angle
Then fold that back.
There you go, see?—like wings!
Launch it into space, well, into the big room
so that there’s room for it to fly
right out over the lake
into Indiana
past the low mountains
and over the ocean

uuuggghhh

Can you crawl down there and get it from under the couch?
Let’s try that again.
