Last night we picked up A and his roommate. They were not ready. A had to let his dogs pee, clean up a mess… The roommate and I talked while he smoked two cigarettes.
I brought their household some food from J’s pantry. There were two types of pancake mix, apple juice, some blueberry muffin mix, a box of mac & cheese, sweet potato soup…
Then we went to Haven Craft for D’s art opening. She does art with skulls. She was not there. We brought her flowers and a card we’d all signed.
It was First Friday. So we went around, waiting for D to show up at 8. I got overloaded quickly. I oscillated between overloaded and really overloaded.
A massaged me in front of a food truck while Ming waited for some vegan wurst. A and Ming shared the wurst, and A fed me a bite. They broke bread. It was sacred.
A bought things: honey stix, a sage bundle, a hotdog. By the hotdog stand some weird guy talked to us for a while. He was from San Diego and talked about how great Vegas is.
Then we went back to Haven Craft and it was swarming with people. Finally D showed up. She was moved to receive the flowers and card. The flowers were red gerber daisies. We had some good hugs.
Then I got overloadeder and Ming and I left. But the other guys were still in there. I stood outside quietly singing to myself, a Durga song, my favorite.
Then A and roommate passed by while M was going to the car for meds. I caught up with them, and they were surprised I came out of nowhere.
Then we went to Cheesecake Factory. I had been wanting to go for a long time, maybe a year. I got some Early Grey tea. The guys got coffee. I ate an omelette that really wasn’t all that good. I gave all my toast to A.
I got a piece of low carb cheesecake to go. I just finished it for breakfast.
A drove us to his place. We said our goodbyes. It was a beautiful night. We didn’t get home till midnight. We went straight to bed.
