When It Takes You Back to Childhood

There are moments and places that take you back to your childhood. For me, if my legs are swinging from one of my grandma’s stools, I’m in the midst of a childhood memory. If I see frogs hopping around I’m reminded of the summer my brother and I caught frogs only to release them later because they were losing weight under our tutelage. These are triggers I know. I wasn’t expecting to be smiling and reminiscing when I accompanied my brother, sister-in-law, and nieces to Main Event, a place with bowling alleys, an arcade, laser tag, and joy. As my nieces ran amidst enough dancing lights to induce a seizure in a blind person, I found myself laughing and enjoying myself too. Texas has been super low-key this time around. It’s been nothing but family.
