Waking up around 3 p.m.

Emily’s here.

Me: “What are you doing here?”

Her: “Hanging out!”

Breakfast: Plain Bagel with Cream Cheese. Orange Juice. Zinc.

Errands. The DMV is not as crowded after 4—not what I expected. It surely didn’t live up to its standards as “Satan’s Asshole” today. It was more like a “Gnome’s Asshole”.

Lunch: Egg Sandwich with Tomato. Salt n Vinegar Chips. Honey Green Tea.

Work at China Wok.

My boss had fired one of our veteran drivers a few weeks ago and today she fired another one over something insignificant. I hope I’m not next.

Eating Mango with Strawberry Yogurt.

Pulling up to the restaurant after a few deliveries, a man gets out of his car and comments on my purple rims, “Those are some alien wheels.” I laugh out loud in response.

Delivering to an old lady with walker in hand. Her apartment smells like bird food but no sign of a bird. I notice three cakes and pies placed on the dining room table.

Me: “Ooo. Tasty treats.”

Her: “They’re not real.”

In shock. Because they even have slices missing to make it more genuine.

Her: “I don’t like to bake.”

Back home. Kelley and Anthony are being their usual violent playful selves.

Elliott stops by for a visit.

Gathering all the vegetables we have in the fridge and making an experimental stir-fry dish with rice. Listing the array of spices and ingredients would not explain this dish the proper way. Carmen and Kevin seemed to like it enough.

Margot’s here. Such a beauty and cutie.

Eating some Strawberry Rhubarb Pie with Milk.

Anthony follows my lead and pours his own glass of milk but using a wine glass.

“Only Anthony would drink milk out of a wine glass and water out of a measuring cup!”

Becca, Ken, and a guy named Gordon stop by. Becca’s cutting my hair as Anthony and Ken jam out on the guitar. “It’s like a mariachi band at a Spanish restaurant or something. My entertainers.”

A few of us gather at the Friends School playground—enjoying the rope swing and the crisp cool night air.

Settling down with some Popcorn and watching Endgame [2009].

Sleep 6 a.m.
