“At some point, you´re just going to say fuck it and you´re going to do what you´ve been putting off (9/23/2018) - and that´s when your life is going to start.” The writer shifts in his seat; how´d he know that I have been putting off buying an anniversary gift for my girlfriend? I continue speaking as I pick up the taza. “Until you get over the fear hump–the thing that you are putting off–you will be living out of fear and not love.  It´s not living–it´s existing.  It´s not happy–it´s flat-lining-“ I...
“This is why I like to have a heavy blanket at night when I sleep–I feel secure”, I tell the writer as I shift in my seat. (9/8/2018) - “That´s interesting”, he replies as he zips up his black hoodie, “so why do I have to wear a black hoodie, again?” “Solidarity.” “With who?” “The penguins.” “I want to be in the group of penguins.” “We respect them and show them this by a simple act–wearing a black hoodie.” “Do they understand what we are doing?” “Doubtful.” “Well then”, he replies as he reclines his seat in the spacejet,...
“It´s just you and your kayak going down the whitewater rapids–you can´t control the river.” (8/19/2018) - “Never been whitewater rafting or kayaking”, the writer replies. “Yeah”, I reply as I pick up my taza, “I read about them in the Earth log´s. Looks like fun!” “That´s cool–so do you want to get back to the 5 things about you?” “Not really”, I say as I take a sip, “I prefer not to talk about me.” “Oh!”, he replies as he takes a sip of his coffee, “that´s...
“Well you know, I have 17 followers on my HandLive account–and, it´s a lot of pressure. When I go to the gym, they go to the gym.” (7/23/2018) - I pause; I want the punchline to be super sweet so he thinks that I´m awesome… and go! “You know that it´s like I´m constantly teaching a spinning yoga digital cooking class in front of a crowd”, I take a sip of coffee; I raise my hand. “More sugar”, I tell the waiter. I continue as I recline in my chair. “I mean what kind of shit show would it be...
“Hey–can you solve all the problems in the world? Also, we´re not going to pay you. It´s due at 2pm Tuesday. Thanks!” (7/11/2018) - I roll my eyes; she thinks this is funny. “HR”, I say as I recline my chair in the kitchen, “it´s not funny–I really need to borrow the spacejet this afternoon.” “Dad”, she replies as she reaches over for the digitalpalomitas, “I thought that you could do anything?” I pause; her point is valid. “Ok”, I reply as I lean forward in my chair and take a sip of coffee, “how about...
“I really want a moat in front of the house”, I tell HR as I strum through the digitalnewspaper. (7/8/2018) - “Hun”, my wife says as she turns her head to me, “don´t forget about alligators!” I pause; I want to really think this out? I continue, “two sharks. I also want there to be two sharks in my moat in front of the house!” She pauses. “That´s nice.” I pause; I´m a genius, right? “I would not have pink flamingos in front of the house in the moat. No, I won´t do...
“You know–the smart bullfighter doesn´t attack–he waits. Once the charge is on, the skill is in knowing how to move”, (7/4/2018) - I tell the barista as I set down the coffee. “Yeah”, he says as rolls his eyes, “that´s great. Again, I told you that I don´t speak English.” He pauses; he puts his hands down. “TURN OFF YOUR DIGITAL TRANSLATOR.” I pause; oh… that´s why he didn´t laugh at my joke. It was a funny joke. I mean not my funniest–but I thought it was funny…. you know… at least, a...
I turn my head from the ruckus. “So”, HR asks as she sips the soda, “what was that about?” (6/26/2018) - “Probably another girlteam causing problems”, I reply as I reach into the bag of palomitas. I put a handful in my mouth; these are excellent! Continuing, “you know since they made HAKI free, we´ve had these roaming hordes of girlteams causing problems–harassing men and punch boys in the  “So”, HR replies as she stands up from the park bench, “what are we going to do today?” “You know”, I reply as...
“So like… 6 days of work… 1 day of rest”, I tell my wife as I scan the produce section in the digital grocerystore. (6/25/2018) - “I think you have a career of rest”, she replies as she picks up the digitalbrocoli. “Yeah”, I reply as I pick up a tube of digitalzanahorias, “you would think–but, actually, not.” She pauses; this would be great for the in-laws when they come in to town. She picks up the digitalmaiz and places it in the cart. “So”, she says as she turns her head to me, “like what the...
“So… like… I´m reading this article that you wrote. It´s really bad and immature”, I tell the writer as I sip my coffee. (6/21/2018) - I continue talking, “so who is it for? What´s it about?” The writer pauses; sips his coffee; he turns his head to look out the window then back at me. “It´s for me.” I pause; excuse me? The writer takes a sip of his coffee. “The article is for me–it´s to remember or to let go, to find peace, or to remind myself of something. It´s a progression of life that...
