Before Sunrise.[i]

Waking up at 11:15 a.m.

Ezekiel 4:9 Sesame Toast with Apple Butter. Orange Juice.

All day shift at China Wok.

Peach. Five Guys French Fries with Ketchup. Honey Oolong Tea.

Just another typical day on the job.

Experiencing an insane thirst.

Tropical Flavored Coconut Water.

Finally off work.

Eating Hot and Sour Soup with Broccoli and Rice.

Ana kindly bought me a six-pack of Miller High Life. I needed this kind of bubbly liquid after such a hardworking day. We have a few plans for the night but first we have to drop Darren and Devon off at the China bus by Rick's Café. They'll be in New York for four days.


At home we spend a little time in Darren's room practicing songs together. "All I Have to Do is Dream". "Proud Mary". "Fell in Love with a Girl". All the while Jupiter runs around the room hunting and chasing down any hint of what he thinks might be a bug. Ana is a tad bit lacking in confidence but I keep telling her there's nothing to fear. She's musically inclined enough to be able to trust her musical instincts. I love her voice.


Sharing bowls of Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal in the kitchen.


Then, settling down in the bed to watch Before Sunset (2004).

Me: "You're so lucky. You get to watch all three of these films in a one-week time span. Imagine being around in 1995 watching the first film and having to wait nine years to continue the story."

And then of course we'll be seeing the third and final installment later this week (nine years from 2004).

Before we go to sleep I ask Ana what time I should set the alarm for.

Me: "How's 7:15?"

Ana: "No. 7:10."

Me: "Wait. Why not five minutes later?"

Ana: "Every minute matters!"

Me: "Haha. I like that you didn't say every second counts. Minute matters is better."

Ana: "I like the alliteration."
