A seven-year-old is a more complicated case. The other day, without warning or any preparation from us, Vivian used the It’s Time For Another Bad Idea shirt Besides,I will do this word coronavirus in a sentence. A sweet-hearted girl, she has recently been boiling with feeling: bouts of manic energy, displays of hyper-competitiveness, hysterical tears at irrational moments, all while maintaining a prevailing cool-girl pose that feels like attitude but I suspect is a kind of sublimated anger.
