Judy's having a moment.

March 05 at 14:02

A: Mom, I need a new laptop. Mine's getting old.

B: Not now, Charlie. Judy's having a moment.

A: What, so my needs come last?

B: Do you know how much a new laptop costs? I can't even swing the mortgage this month.

Question 1. What does "be having a moment" mean in this sentence?

I saw the Chinese subtitle is like, she is sad.

I looked it up in the dictionary and found the meaning is " to be very or at a ". I guess It doesn't add up.

Question 2. So the mortgage can go with the verb "swing"? Is it common to use like that? Is it slang?

Thank you!!!
