Just getting through the day.

Finishing The Skeleton Key (2005).

Jessica is officially moved out and Darren and Devon have officially moved in.

Ana calls me up on the phone. She says she has a lot of energy and wants to chat but I don't have a lot to talk about cause my day was pretty routine and I don't typically enjoy conversations on the phone unless they're necessary. It's close to 2 a.m. and I'm just tired. I hate to let her down so we talk for about ten minutes or so.

Later on as I'm about to brush my teeth I notice somebody in the bathroom with the water running. I assume it's Kevin but after knocking on the door I hear no answer. I find a way to open the door and discover Anthony slouched on the toilet sitting in the same position as that famous statue of the thinking man. And yet he's sleeping. I turn off the running faucet and startle him awake, "Anthony? Hey, were you sleeping?"

"No," he replies stoically.

Me: "Oh. Okay. I thought you were Kevin. Are you drunk?"

"No," he repeats the same answer.

I close the door and add, "That's a lie."

I say a prayer for him and go to bed.
