Waking up at 10:30 a.m.

Getting groceries at Trader Joe's. "Mr. Ana!" they call me cause I'm Ana's boyfriend.
Dinner: Black Bean Rotini and Brown Rice Quinoa Spaghetti with Green Peppers, Onions, and a Salad.
The Shreveport boys are in town and Skippy's throwing a bonfire over at his parent's place. I grab a bottle of White Wine and join in on the reunion. James Graves, Richie Howard, Skippy Shoals, Anthony the hype man, Allyson Keck, Kevin Moore, and so on. James's two sisters, Angel and Lindsey, show up later. Oh, Rachel Rephan and Jerome! After Ana gets off work she rolls over. We tend the fire and blare the tunes, deejayed consistently by Anthony. It's good to see these kids all in one place.
On the drive back home Kevin tags along in the passenger seat. He's pretty drunk. He keeps reiterating how much he loves me like a brother and how he's aware of how irresponsible he is in regards to finances and chores, that it's all unintentional.
"If you're ever in a bind I got your back," he keeps saying.
"I appreciate that. That's what friends are for."
Back home. Rinsing my body off from all the fiery fumes.
Sleep next to Ana at 2:30 a.m.
