Ana Washing Dishes (July 24 2014) (1)[i]

☼ ○ ▬

Fruit Fly Mayhem: A plant on my bedside desk is infested with mealy bugs and fruit flies. I'm stressing out as I attempt to rid the pests. All the while my mom is visiting with me for some reason. She kind of surprised me showing up out of the blue. I ask for advice on what I can do to stop the fruit flies. I inspect the plant and notice almost all the leaves are wilted and falling off. I see a disgusting little clump of the bugs crowded along the edge of the pot. I pour water over it hoping to drown them.

Waking up to the subs in Josh's room. His response after I text him to cut the woofers for a while is, "Gotta get those rap beats bumpin; for my workout, dog."

Honey Crunch n Oats with Almond Milk.

Catching on news and writing.

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

Ana arrives. Working on a few songs together. Then we're off to the Rec Center. I deal my hand in organized basketball. It's an evening of highs and lows on the courts, literally and figuratively. I get plenty of opportunity to knock in shots – sometimes I'm on fire and other times I've gotta step down. Every now and then Ana takes a break from her workout and watches my games. She catches me putting down buckets right and left – impressing the girlfriend is a plus.

Banana. Orange Juice.

Sharing dinner with Ana back home: Black Beans, Brown Rice, and Homemade Slaw. Blackberry Pear Crispins. Darren and Devon happen to be enjoying a dinner of their own. We all sit around at the table as two couples. Darren talks about how much he's starting to love his Whole Foods job – he just got a raise and he's starting to view it as a possible long-term employment. Even in this positive light we still manage to vent about our struggles and complaints as delivery drivers for China Wok.


Feeling very satisfied with our dinner choice tonight. The tart sting of the apple cider vinegar in the slaw mixed in with the black beans and rice create a succulent combo.

While Ana bakes a cookie recipe she found recently I set up the big screen TV in the living room. Double Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies. They're burnt a little on the bottom (she claims it was the oats she added that caused it) but they're still delicious. I put on The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (2013), a movie that turns out to be heartwarming, inspiring, and hilarious. Kevin slurps up his after-work Ramen Noodles on the other couch.

The moment just before she realized I was taking pictures of her..."What are you doing?"

Upstairs in the bedroom. Both of us parched from all the cookies we ate. Sipping on OJ and water. Lounging in the bed. She pampers me – rubbing my back lightly with her delicate hands. Sex is inevitable.

After taking care of my usual bedtime tasks I join her back in the bed sometime after 4 a.m.
