Afterwards, we got gas. Picked up a bunch of scripts for my brother. Bought a jar of replacement peanut butter and a couple of magazines. Who knew a run of the mill magazine cost $12.99 now?
Here are two ways you know you’re in Southern California:
1) You see two VW Beetles (in good shape!), one with a “USC Dad” sticker;
2) The cashier complains that it’s overcast, even though the sun has come out every day for the last two weeks (and it’s out again now).
We saw the boys again. Whow-zer is traffic a thing around here. I know you know, but whew!
It’s our last full day here. These two weeks have been daunting and at times sad, full of a strange mix of defeat and determination. Much too much to write about here.
The manuscript has mostly languished during my stay here. “No none standard” work habit. It’s hard to focus when you’ve become porous to another’s discomfort.
