Waking up at 11:20 a.m.

All day shift at China Wok.


Scrambled Eggs. Flax Toast with Vegan Cream Cheese and Strawberry Jam. Honey Black Tea.

I point out to Ling that I saw a baby roach crawl from underneath the counter. He suddenly decides that all cardboard boxes holding the sauces, bags, and anything else need to be thrown out. He instructs me to fill all the soy sauce, duck sauce, mustard, and hot sauce packets into the empty white buckets we keep in the back. This is a lengthy task because all the buckets are dirty. Later, he explains that roach eggs might be transported on the delivery truck via the cardboard boxes. So from now on we don't keep any boxes up front. Sometimes, I think he's crazy. There's nothing wrong with that theory but what about all the other boxes around the restaurant? Why only these specific boxes? You can't argue with the man. His lack of English keeps him impatient and angry.

Ana shows up. I offer her a container of Fava beans that I made last night. She's always bringing edible gifts to me at work so I figure I'd gift her with something this time. She rides in the passenger seat while I hastily deliver Chinese food. It's raining and cold out. She stays wrapped up the checkered towel.
