: (bursts out laughing) Those old ladies back there said, There’s a sexy Asian guy!
Me: I am! (turning to her) Kidding – it’s only cause I’ve got such a lovely accessory…
Her: (beams)
Me: …my cool leather jacket.
Her: (laughs again) Yes, you’re really popular with the cougars.
Don’t think I’ve ever gone this long without a single client calling me. Man, it’s like death out there. Gotta tap into my last little bit of emergency coin but suppose this is emergency time.

Been keeping busy trying to get some some things settled, though. The thesis, paperwork, continuing education. Lotsa stuff. Personal stuff too – saw my cousins last night. We never hang out. No reason, just don’t. People think I eat a lot. These guys, these guys can pound. And they’re all normal looking.

Talked about our grandmother. They said, without trying to make me feel bad, that I should have seen her. Least said goodbye. Told them I couldn’t. They said my mom sat all by her lonesome at the funeral.

Somehow, knew that without them telling me that. Guess cause I do that too, sometimes.

Told them that I’m closer to 40 than I am to 30. And I’m still waiting for my real life to begin.

Man, how silly’s that?

  1. "Told them that I'm closer to 40 than I am to 30. And I'm still waiting for my real life to begin.Man, how silly's that?"yah, i hear you man… sometimes i wonder though, if there are ppl destined to be waiting for their life to begin forever… have you seen vicky christina barcelona? christina… sometimes i feel like that too and then i remind myself that it's a dangerous thought to have. 😛

  2. It's the asian gene in us. I out eat most of the guys I know.I am not waiting for life to start, but I often feel like I'm just going with the flow. Then that poses the question if I'm floating in the right direction.And I get insomnia for about 6 weeks every spring. It's normally not here till closer to the end of March. We'll see how it goes.

  3. It is a dangerous thought to have but it won't stop showing up sometimes.As for the asian gene in it, it's putting up a mighty fight against the western fast food and cola – but I think they might lose.
