Driving with my boss, Cecily, and one of her daughters in a car. I think Cecily is at the wheel. I carefully lay my head on her shoulder in an affectionate way. We pull into a shopping plaza for food. I get excited and tell her about this amazing pizza I had yesterday but I can't remember which restaurant it was from. Most of the stores we see are closed except for two pizza joints. Later on, in the car, I'm at the wheel now. Approaching a boastful middle-aged man with long dirty blonde hair and a goatee.
He shouts out to me in a sarcastic manner, "I'll trade ya for the pizza and the girls!"
I don't really understand what's happening. Maybe I'm making a delivery. Either way, the man grips my hand and challenges me to a wrestling match. A bunch of people surround us. I hold my ground. My strength overpowers his strength surprisingly (he's a bigger dude than me). I pit him in a chokehold and a leg hold on the ground.

Everyone starts chanting, "Wayne! Wayne! Wayne!"

That's my dad's name but it's understood to be my name in the dream. We both rise from the ground and he congratulates me on my win. Upon reflection I mention how my muscles have gotten much stronger than I thought.

Waking up at 10:40 a.m.

Irish Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Maple Syrup, Chia Seeds, Blueberries, Strawberries, and Almond Milk. Coffee with Cream and Honey.

All day shift at China Wok.


During the down time I watch as Janice unwillingly hops like a bunny rabbit around the restaurant in a circle. Cecily makes her do this to wake her up cause she gets sleepy while doing math homework.

Baby Kale Salad with Tomatoes. Leftover slice of Ricotta Cheese Pizza. Pu-erh Tea. Opal Apple.

It's busy for deliveries after 5 o'clock. Dealing with the usual bullshit. Overcrowded hotels from a high school wrestling convention. People zooming behind bushes. People driving dangerously cautious.

Snacking on Plantain Chips.

It's a late shift tonight. I arrive home after 11:30 p.m. Enjoying Black Beans with Broccoli and Rice.

Finishing Interstellar (2014).

Talking with Ana on the phone I explain, "Everyone's upset cause it's cold today!" She just had a birthday party at her mom's house in Norfolk. She's getting home so late that I won't be able to see her.

Sleep 3:30 a.m.
