☼ ○ ▬

Walking down the street in an unfamiliar city. I’m all alone. I feel a poke from behind. It’s Raven. I haven’t seen her in ages. She looks different than I remember. We spark up a lighthearted conversation and catch up on things.

Waking up regretfully at 11:02 a.m.

Strawberry Toaster Pastries. Orange Juice.

All day shift at China Wok.

I’ve been wearing this friendship bracelet Leslie made for me. Somehow it’s retained a unique scent reminiscent of fragrant dryer sheets. But it smells like her. I’m grateful.

Sweet & Spicy Pecans. Five Guy’s French Fries with Ketchup. Honey Oolong Tea.

It rains but the rain gradually transforms into snow. It’s too wet for any of it to really stick. This causes an expected boost in deliveries.

As soon as I step into the restaurant I’m back out the door with a handful of orders. It’s non-stop all day long.

God and these idiots behind the wheel! This stop and go traffic is exasperating. I can only go as fast as the driver in front of me. Just puttin’ along. My nerves are racked. Inefficient driving behavior annoys the hell out of me.

The night just drags on and on. This city’s appetite for Chinese food is insatiable.

Finally off work and back home after over eleven hours of mayhem.

Hot and Sour Soup with Broccoli and Rice.

Watching Switchback (1997).

Fortune cookie says, “Moderate you appetite so that with a little you may be content.”

Just outside my bedroom window I keep hearing the sound of a Taser gun. Kevin recently bought a fairly cheap one and keeps showing it off to his friends.

Chocolate Cake with Almond Milk.

Sleep 3 a.m.
