Girl's Easter Drawing (April 5 2015)[i]

☼ ○ ▬

An undesired shootout goes down outside a warehouse. I play a key role in protecting my friends. A group of hoodlums hide inside the back of a semi-truck about to take off. I spot a shooter aiming at my friends and take multiple shots at him. I manage to kill two. The others hastily search for me. I run behind the buildings and try to escape. Inside a garage bay made of giant cardboard boxes I discover a two heavy-duty hatches that lead to secret rooms. I carefully inspect everything before I crawl inside. I hit a button that activates a platform that I'm on. I can hear the voices of James Graves, Anthony, Richie, and Josh echo from the other part of the building. It's understood they were the hoodlums in the semi. They're searching for me.

James finds me in the secret room and asks, "Where are you gonna hide?" as if he's concerned about my well being.

"I'm not sure," I say.

Eventually, we regroup with the others.

I reprimand Richie, "If it wasn't for you this whole thing wouldn't even have happened!"

Nobody seems to care about it anyway. We have other plans. Hopping a train is one of them. All of us sit securely on the flatbed of a train car as it speeds down the tracks. No one has any idea where we are going.

Waking up to Ana's fair touch. The sun shines brightly through the shades of her bedroom window. The Easter morning birds tweet loud and clear. And in celebration of life and resurrection we make love.

Raw Cacao Protein Drink with Maca Powder, Blueberries, Banana, and Almond Milk.      

All day shift at China Wok.

Slow afternoon at the restaurant. Snapping the snow peas and singing to myself while Janice comes back and forth pretending to be a teacher and punishing me like a student – I have to sit in my timeout chair and finish the whole box of snow peas before I'm allowed to get up again. Never a dull moment at China Wok when the girls are here.

Scrambled Eggs. Toast with Non-Dairy Cream Cheese and Strawberry Jam. Black Bean Quinoa Corn Tortilla Chips with Avocado. Honey Green Tea.

It picks up after Art comes in for the dinner rush.

Pink Lady Apple.

With Cecily gone for the day in New York we have to pick up the slack. I'm helping more with the expediting and cooking.

Elliott drops in and joins me on a few deliveries.

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

Off work and back home. Ana and I were supposed to rehearse some songs but she's lying comfortably under the covers and won't be able to give it 100%. So I head off to the unit to work on my own material.

Sleep 3 a.m.
