DREAM: I’m running away from a man. Hop. Jump. Skip. Across the prairie. I make it through the trees and peer out onto a vast futuristic city located in the center of the mountains. The man is close on my tail. I dart up high in the sky and begin to fly...flailing my arms...keeping the momentum. The man stands guard on the edge just watching. He yells out to me to watch where I land. It’s as if he’s looking out for my safety. I’m soaring high above this city, which is understood to be Paris. The architecture is intricate. Warehouses. Dark yellows and reds. The smog. An old city charm built into fresh design. I’m losing my momentum and I’m forced to land directly into an office building...

Getting out of bed at 11:10 a.m.

Cinnamon Oatmeal with Brown Sugar, Flax Seed, Raisins, and Milk. Strawberry Banana Orange Juice. Zinc (50mg).

All day shift at China Wok.

Pretty busy afternoon.

Spicy Chic-fil-A Sandwich with Lettuce and Tomato. Waffle Fries. Sweet Tea.

I deliver an order in Margot’s neighborhood and decide to pop in for a surprise visit. She likes it. I only have about 10 minutes though. I lounge on the couch with her. One of the Kardashians appears on the TV and she mentions how young she looks despite being 30.

Me: “Well of course. 30 isn’t old. People still look young at 30. It’s when they turn 40 they have to start looking out...and the wrinkles. I’m definitely gonna have some wrinkles from all the stress in my life.” I pull a smirk and add, “...all the stress you cause me.”

She smiles and replies with, “No. I enrich your life.”

Me: “Yeah well along with any kind of enrichment comes the stress.”

Her: “But that’s how it is when you care about someone.”

And busy dinner rush.

Japanese Snacks and Prunes.

The last two hours of work is dead.

Back home.

Salmon and Mixed Vegetables in Garlic Sauce with Rice.

Watching The Fighter (2010).

My fortune cookie says, “Ones always regrets what could have done. Remember for next time.” What?

Even mentioning the word “cookie” in this house can cause an overwhelming excitement to its dwellers compared to that of a dog when you repeat the words "treat" or "walk". Making Chocolate Chip Cookies...then enjoying them.

Sleep at some point.
