Five Guys French Fries with Ketchup (May 4 2013)[i]

Waking up at 11 a.m.

Strawberry Greek Yogurt with Bananas. Honey Oolong Tea.

All day shift at China Wok.

It’s a fairly busy day for deliveries.

Mesquite Almonds. Five Guys French Fries with Ketchup. Lemon Water.

Delivering an order to an apartment in Barberton Court. A big black man with bulging wild eyes answers the door. His living room is dark. He hands me exact change for his food then pulls out a dollar bill debating whether or not to hand it to me.

“Do you need a dollar for tip?” he asks with a furrowed brow.

“Yes. We work for tips. But that’s up to you.” I say.

I shouldn’t have even said that last part because then he puts the bill away and shakes his head, “Ah. Nah.” then closes the door. Wow.


A healthy relationship is one where two independent people just make a deal that they will help make the other person the best version of themselves.

Finally, after 11.5 hours of hard labor, I’m at home. As soon as I step into the door there’s a debate between Kelley and Darren that’s somehow escalated to the point where they’re screaming. I retreat up to my room.

Enjoying some Vegetable Egg Fried Rice and watching one of my favorite basketball movies, Blue Chips (1994), and sipping on a beer.

Sleep 4 a.m.
