thinking of happier things

Day 1; Day 2; Day 3; Day 4

Day 5

I came home from school today and found Mom in tears with the TV set on. They're gonna kill him, she said. Who? That Scott, she said, the guy who killed his wife.

I think, so why are you crying, Mom? Do you know him? Did you know the wife he killed? But I don't ask her, because suddenly I know why she's crying. It's because when Dad left, she died. So in a way she feels like Scott and Dad are the same.

Mom's not clear on a lot of things that are real, but unpleasant.

I went up to my room to read. I checked out a nice book from the school library today, The Menace from Earth. So while Mom was crying, I was thinking about flying on the Moon.
