Chocolate Woman. From Femal Fatal.[i]

Throughout the night I find it difficult to get deep sleep. Every time there's body movement I get jolted out of my sleep thoughts and I'm back to square one. Eventually we awaken collectively late in the afternoon at 1:43 p.m.

Sharing breakfast downstairs: Grapefruit. Honey Bunches of Oats with Almond Milk.

She makes up the bed as she always feels it is her duty to do so. I jump in to distract her with my affection. It's been a while since we've had sex and this is the perfect time to break that streak.

Day trip to the American Asian Market off Great Neck. She's never been there. Despite how cold it is in the store we browse through the aisles pointing out all the interesting and unconventional items. There always seems to be a taro root flavor option for anything.

Across the street we sit down at Brothers Pizza for a few slices. She snacks on these Panda chocolate crackers and says, "Whenever I eat chocolate it just makes me so happy. It's like a relief."


In the car on the way home we both place our shivering hands underneath our legs.

"Where the true warmth is," she says.

Me: "I feel like you could write a book one day called, Where the True Warmth Is."

At the Rec Center for organized basketball. I get put on the wait list for the third time in a row! It's unbelievable. But it's not really a big deal cause I take advantage of the time to work out in the weight room and eventually after about the third or fourth game I get called onto a team.


On the rest time a talkative older guy (39 years old) I see here often approaches me and says, "Hey! I've been praying for ya."

Me: "Thanks, man."

Guy: "Really though this year is gonna be good for you."

He mentions how the age of 30 is a magical time when everything unravels for you.

Back home.

A hefty Kale Salad with Tomatoes, Almonds, Dried Cranberries, Cilantro, and Green Onions. English Muffin with Vegan Cream Cheese. Red Bean Bun.

Watching Captain Phillips (2013).

Ana texts me, "I'm really happy we spent the day together. Thank you for sharing your games, your bed, your food, your warmth, and time with me. I know that I distance myself from you, and I'm really sorry for that. All you have been is such an amazing, caring, and giving person that I don't ever want to lose. I know I have to make sure I keep you because you are a keeper! I feel like I don't appreciate you enough like I want to. I want to grow as a person, and I want to grow with you too. I do want this relationship to progress."

She adds, "Sex with you is like eating all of my favorite chocolates."

Maple Leaf Cookies and Coffee.

Learning songs on the guitar.

Sleep 3:30 a.m.
