☼ ○ ▬

Running through a series of hallways and corridors as part of an obstacle course game. I lose my partner somewhere along the way and venture outside to peruse the streets. Cars parked on the curb. I select a nice looking sports car and hijack it. But I don’t turn on the ignition yet. I take a few minutes to enjoy the thrilling moment. Meanwhile the owner returns to his car to find me inside. I play it off like we knew each other and I was waiting for him this whole time. I guess he plays along too.

Strawberry Toaster Pastries. Orange Juice.

All day shift at China Wok.

At the restaurant counter taking a lady’s order that, by the attire, I can tell works at a nearby office. She smiles big and compliments my Edgar Allan Poe t-shirt. She’s got a pleasant ora about her that’s really attractive.

Mom shows up. It’s her last day in Virginia Beach. She accompanies me on a delivery run. Peeling a Florida Orange for me while I drive. It’s nice to be spending so much frequent time with her. I hate that it has to be rare.


Jimmy comes to pick her up and they go off to have dinner with Jimmy’s brother.

Nuts. Five Guys French Fries with Ketchup. Honey Green Tea.

Work is steady and the tips are generally high. I can’t complain too much.

It’s an unusually foggy and misty night making it a blur.

Bosc Pear.

Off work and back home

Broccoli, Snow Peas, Egg, and Rice in Brown Sauce. Peroni Beer.

Fortune cookie says, “Laziness is nothing more than the habit of resting before you get tired.”

Mom and Jimmy hang out with me in my bedroom. Art just got off work and joins us. To the soundtrack of Jimmy past out snoring in my bed the rest of us talk about this and that.
Art brings up something that goes along with the long-distance relationship theme and the problems associated with it – connections can’t grow stronger and the more physical time apart the more disconnect there is.

Filling up on Oranges and finishing a movie.

Sleep 4 a.m.
