Priorities: An Elijahlogue

Mom: (By way of explanation for the Small Scene which resulted in Mom having to go for a little walk to compose herself). I'm just having a lot of big feelings right now, honey. We all are. If you were just going to kindergarten, we'd all have big feelings. Or if I was only starting a big new job , or if it was only that our house was all torn up so we all had to live all squashed together, or if it was only taht Daddy was in a cast from an accident and having a hard time getting around , or if it was only that we were trying to find our way around a new city where we dont know where anything is - any of those things would give us big feelings. So it's like big feelings times five.

Son: (comfortingly) Well, we know where the bowling alley is.

yeah, I think the fact that we had just BEEN bowling and I had gotten a record low score (63!) and E had gotten a record high (95!) was keeping the bowling alley pretty large on the internal radar screen.
