Waking up at 11:15 a.m.

Grapefruit. Corn Flakes and Berry Cobbler Granola with Almond Milk.

When I arrive at China Wok to start my all day shift the front door is locked. There's nobody here to my surprise. I call the bosses and turns out Ling and Min overslept. Now that's a rarity.


Taking care of the usual tasks at the restaurant like prepping the paper bags into the plastic bags and filling up the 2 oz. cups with ginger garlic soy sauce.

Ana shows up for a visit quite earlier than usual (about 4), and for a long time accompanies me in the passenger seat on my deliveries until about 7:30. Enjoying nostalgic tunes on the stereo and poking fun at each other.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich. Baked Salt n Vinegar Chips. Honey Green Tea.

At one point when I get back in the car I pretend that I'm about to tell her something...

Me: "Hey! There's something I need to tell you about."

"What? Tell me!" she reacts with eagerness.

"I love you," I say quickly.

Those brown lips of hers slowly turn into a big smile – I'm certain the smile on the inside is even bigger.

After eating my homemade Granola Bar I comment about how the chia seeds get stuck in my teeth. After a while they turn slimy like they usually do when they get wet and then I can push them out with my tongue.

Me: "It's like an after-snack! A snack after the snack!"

We get stopped at a light for a while. I lean over the mid-console into her chest and we enjoy an affectionate moment.

After she leaves she sends me a few after-texts...

"That hug you gave me at the long light is exactly what I wanted. I felt a little energized after you hugged and held onto me. Kissing you with your mini neck kisses only felt natural. When you hold onto my thigh or my hands in the's very comforting."

Off work and back home.

Spring Rolls. Tofu with Broccoli, Onions, Carrots, and Rice in Garlic Sauce.

Watching Bronson (2008).

Sleep 4 a.m.
