Big Fish.[i]

Waking up around noon.

Cream of Wheat with Almond Milk. Orange Juice.

No China Wok. No lessons. I actually have the whole day free. I'm relieved.


Scrambled Eggs. Everything Bagel with Vegan Cream Cheese. Sweet Potato Chips with Salsa. Honey Green Tea. White Peach.

At the Rec Center shooting hoops and working out. I leave after about an hour and a half to get some fresh air on the basketball courts off First Colonial. I had planned to run the track field but some street ballers needed an extra man for some 3-on-3. I've got my right thumb wrapped up and cushioned with a finger sleeve. During the game play it doesn't agitate me as much as it would have last week. I'm almost at the end of the healing road, maybe even ready for competitive basketball again.

Back home. Taking an Epsom salt bath and drinking a post-workout Vega Sports Drink.

We're having a special Movie Monday showing of Big Fish (2003), as requested by Josh. Allyson, James Graves, Stephen, and Richie are here. Ana also of course. Sharing dinner with her: Coconut Shrimp, Japanese Style Rice, and Broccoli and Carrots. We all freak out about the young Miley Cyrus cameo. I remember adoring this movie many years ago when I was a young adult.

After everyone leaves, and after I clean up, I hang back in the living room. Kevin walks in drunkenly from Tapped. Josh left his phone downstairs.

Me: "Do you know what I'm holding in my hand right now?"

Kevin: "What's that?"

Me: "Your redemption. Remember all those times Josh hacked into your Facebook account? Well, here you go."

I plop the phone into Kevin's hands. I watch as he struggles to figure out how to use Josh's ancient flip phone. Eventually, he manages to prank text a few people whom in the end figure out its Kevin anyway. Nice try anyway.

Sleeping next to Ana at 3:30 a.m.
