Pollen Vision (April 18 2015)[i]

Waking up at 10:45 a.m.

Raw Cacao Protein Shake with Banana, Strawberries, and Almond Milk.

All day shift at China Wok.

The yellow dust has settled on everyone's car – it's officially pollen season. Everything I see through my windshield has a yellow tint. With my finger I draw out an image on my rear window that says, "I AM THE POLLEN KING!"

Banana Almond Meal Muffin.

Scrambled Eggs. Toast with Non-Dairy Cream Cheese and Strawberry Jam. Sweet Potato Corn Tortilla Chips with Avocado.

Hungrier For More (April 18 2015)

Some thoughts and terms I've taken in while listening to various podcasts on the drives...

The news (the media) is an echo chamber.

Experienced world-weary person – I feel myself becoming.

Basically, we are all getting smarter because our beliefs are constantly being challenged via The Internet through argumentation theory.

Naked cynicism is a recurring problem along with contrarians.

"Reason allows people who have the right answer to find arguments to convince the others and allows those who have the wrong answer to accept these arguments and to see their strengths." – Hugo Mercier

After the dinner rush an older lady is placing an order at the counter. As of late the daughters, Janice and Eileen, have been helping out with answering the phones and handling the cash transactions with the pick-up customers. The lady hands Janice her credit card to pay for the food.

She turns to me and asks, "I don't know if it's true but is it illegal for the children to be handling credit cards?"

I never even considered this to be a concern until she asked.

"They're all family. It's okay," I assure her.

Off work and back home.

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

Watching Daredevil (TV series 2015).
