Saturday stuff: -10 below in NYC

Flying back to California tomorrow morning. As predicted, spent most of the past few days inside other people’s apartments. This afternoon, in search of a kid-friendly activity, my sister, brother-in-law, my six-year-old nephew and I went bowling.
What I learned:
The bowling alley says it’s a 30 minute wait, but they lie.
While waiting an hour for a lane, you spend $15 on video games, and $10 on kid food.
Everyone around you is doing the same thing–but some look happier about it than others.
I suck at bowling–my nephew got a better score than I did (okay, he had bumpers, but even still…)
