Rainbow (June 13 2014)[i]

Waking up from a deep sleep at 10:45 a.m. Not feeling 100% - my right ankle is still sore from yesterday's rollover on the basketball court.

Drinking some hearty Carrot-Orange Juice and my usual bowl of cereal. Halfway through something doesn't sit right in my stomach and I'm forced to stop eating. I don't think I should mix that juice with cereal.

All day shift at China Wok.

Popping a few acetaminophen pills.

Egg Drop Soup.

On the down time the girls huddle up next to me at the table. Janice tries to describe a house she heard about that looks like a strawberry. I somehow convince them that there is such a phenomenon as strawberry ghosts, like little invisible flying ghosts that are supposed to be strawberries. They sit in front of me with wide eyes and ears listening as I describe a ghost sighting I experienced when I was a kid.

Grapefruit. Cinnamon Raisin Bagel with Vegan Cream Cheese. Honey Green Tea.

The day drags on until about 6 o'clock when the phones start to ring off the hook. Darren gets called in to help with the dinner shift. Rain drizzles from the sky in movements like a Beethoven piece.

Kombucha. Fiberful Peanut Butter Chocolate Granola Bar.

Dealing with the usual troubles of a delivery driver – difficulty locating an address that was written down incorrectly to begin with – customers not knowing where they live – not having change for a hundred dollar bill.

Back home finally shortly after 11 p.m.

Vegetable Lo Mein.

Doing chores – cleaning dishes – laundry – trimming mustache.

Sleep 3:30 am.
