Waking up at 10:40 a.m.
Irish Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Chia Seeds, Maple Syrup, Nectarines, and Yogurt.
All day shift at China Wok.
Scrambled Eggs. Toast with Non-Dairy Cream Cheese. Tortilla Chips with Avocado and Tomato. Honey Green Tea.
It's a slow afternoon for deliveries. I take a little excursion to Whole Foods to get some turmeric and some colloidal silver. I discover a mango-nectarine hybrid. I can't resist grabbing a couple.
The big rash on my left arm is still in full swing. I continue to keep my coconut oil/beeswax balm on it to keep the itchiness away and keep it moisturized. Cecily drills me on Chinese medicine ideas of "hot" and "cold" foods that are appropriate for certain physical situations. It's interesting hearing another culture's medicinal perspective. She mentions this special branch they've been making tea out of; she makes Janice, her daughter, drink it for her breakouts. I do believe traditional Chinese medicine could be beneficial but I have yet to really learn about it and try it for myself.
My last delivery of the night is out in the shadowlawn neighborhood on Delaware Avenue. This lady has ordered multiple times from us. And I wasn't expecting to get hit on by her but that's exactly what happened...
"I have a question," she says as she signs the credit receipt. "What time do you get off?"
"Uh," I answer. "That depends whenever people stop ordering...about 10:30 or 11. Why?"
"Okay. I'm just asking..." she says. "...in case you ever wanted to hang out."
"Oh. Okay," I chime back embarrassingly not sure how to respond. She's not exactly somebody I would say I'm attracted to – not really interested but I don't want to be rude. But still I'm flattered.
"Well, I'll see you next time," I finish as I walk back to my car.
Back home and off work.
Tofu with Broccoli, Carrots, Onions, and Rice in Garlic Sauce.
Watching Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003).
