AT PRESENT cool jazz pops out hidden omnipresent speakers…just so. Perfect. One girl looks at herself in her mirror phone, you see this over her shoulder, her back to you. Her boyfriend opposite.
On your left a girl with pale jean jacket on a stool facing the windows outside to the blank walls of the no stores new mall across the way. On her back, left shoulder, a small, stitched black and white patch. In English it reads: "I AM BUSY!" and below that in the same bubble cartoon balloon: "CALL LATER".
Perfect, no? Yes. Indeed. Off to the side another girl has a fine striped white horizontal lined long sleeved close fitting top. It’s blue and white. Thin white lines between say 1/2" dark Navy blue lines. With me. 9 people on this beautiful overcast late afternoon in Buena Park, where we’ve all just hauled in a load of Skin Supplies from KPop moon scoop or something it said on the outside…but the receipt says Kpop. And, Aritaum, respectively.
1 more day left. It’s awful. All going to end after the day of [not after] tomorrow. I have the work week off today and tomorrow. The next 2 days after, my weekend, I still have off, but so what? How much can I do in 2 days? How much rest can a person get from what normally they have off? I’m going to have to do what I normally do then. It’s all about food prep lunch sack set, wash, gas up car, etc. And it’s to be done just so, or I’m not comfortable/ready. There’s not much time left to enjoy. I had to drive and map myself on unfamiliar streets getting here, and had to do a couple of turn arounds, and now here, almost home, I’m trying to relax. I did some earlier, even in the car, I was mindful enough to remind myself, enjoy, enjoy. Here’s this, there’s that. Places to go and try next time. Oh, I could…but no, I’ve bills to pay tomorrow, and that’s fine. It was fine then as well. All very good. No post cards written, but it’s okay too. It’s been PERFECT weather. Usually it would be sunny and super hot. And so, yeah, neither. Perfectly Comfortable. At ease. Now time perhaps to slide on down to the coast and look at your writing on the notebook. You can do that here as well. But…well, dunno. Maybe you should go, clean off your bathroom counter. Not have to have that which you won’t clean even on weekends off of work. Incidentally, June 1st is The First Date for Vacation submissions for December January next, or, upcoming, right? Right. Let’s get on the road again. Find some other way back first…don’t just Beach it, Highway 39….home. Look at something from a different perspective, eh?
