I guess sometimes when tragedies happen to us, we can't deal with them. So we don't. I guess the mom in this case couldn't take the loss of her son (who could?) and so took him somewhere where she could try to beleive everything was okay. And why the motel? I imagine it's because no one would find her there. If someone could just walk in and disrupt her fantasy, I guess there wouldn't be much point to it. Good video, by the way. Modest Mouse is awesome.

so the mom wanted to keep him with her son with her as long as possible. i'd have to ask though, why didn't she take him home instead of to some hotel room?
