Cinnamon Raisin Bagel with Vegan Cream Cheese. Orange Juice.

All day shift at China Wok.

It's expectedly dead at the restaurant. I take to scrubbing a few sinks in the back.

Five Guys French Fries with Ketchup. Honey Green Tea.

As of late I've been developing an unhealthy addiction to Kinder Chocolate Bars.

Later in the day I eat an apple. Then I realize I can develop a healthy addiction to these Fuji Apples.

Surprisingly, the business picks up dramatically at dinnertime. I'm the only driver and that means I can reap all the delivery benefits without the competition. But it also means I have to be a super driver. And so I am.

Ana arrives within the last hour of my shift and tags along. We sit down at the table and enjoy Vegetable Moo Shu with Broccoli.

30 orders delivered today and $116 in tips. With only 18 orders and $60 made in tips yesterday, I feel well rewarded.

Wallowing around in the bed Ana and I talk. I bring up the topic of her choice to wear makeup on her face. I didn't mean to insult but she becomes slightly offended and walks over to her "corner" by the clothes hamper.

Me: "I just want to be able to kiss you more there."

She mentions her behavior trait of being uncomfortable to discuss every personal detail with someone whom she has romantic interest in. With other friends it's doesn't even phase her. She hides over by the bedroom door. I keep my gaze on her behind the whirring fan.

Me: "Well are you afraid of rejection? Most people are. You shouldn't be. You have nothing to worry about. I like you."

Eventually she returns to the bed. We finish watching Django Unchained (2012). Then off to sleep at 4 a.m.
