A Week in Review: We Had a Tornado Watch and Kevin’s Probably Not Chinese, Ya’ll

Oh, hai. In case you were wondering, we survived the tornado watch the other night.

We just have some felled branches and green plants to contend with.

During the watch, I took comfort in my binky angel while mom watched formulaic crime dramas and texted her brother.

Uncle Matthew gave me the binky angel. Auntie Kim made the binky, in case there was any confusion.

Uncle Matthew gave me the binky angel. Auntie Kim made the binky, in case there was any confusion. And when it got really bad, I hid in the linen closet, because that’s what you’re supposed to do when it’s dark and scary out.

Now that we have the tornado watch behind us, I’m helping my mom do research for a ghostwriting project. She’s learning that Chicano poets rock and that sometimes it’s nice to hear about the whole overcoming adversity thing, especially when you’re recovering from surgery and heavily medicated and exes pretend they accidentally emailed you when really they’re still rehashing a relationship gone wrong and should probably refrain from using the computer when drunk, stoned, or lying.

Luis Rodriguez is the bomb, ya’ll.

I also manged to make a few pate creations this week. OK, one creation. We’re not sure if it’s a baby pegasus or a dog awaiting treats. Maybe you can help us figure it out. Mom’s on painkillers, so she says things are kind of a blur right now.

And to round out this whole mystery week, Mama J helped us figure out what our tea wallet actually says. We asked Kevin, but his Chinese isn’t that good, and we’re not even sure he’s actually Chinese. So all he could tell us was that it was some sort of Buddhist poem or maybe a warning and that it may or may not include the words Buddha, pearl, blood, especially, gold, and ear.

Thank God Mama J saved the day with the whole marauding angle. Otherwise, we might still be wondering what this mysterious wallet was trying to tell us.

Kevin’s probably not Chinese. We can neither affirm nor deny this statement.

Rough translation: No use petitioning the golden pearl Buddha, cuz I’ll cut yer bloody ear off if you steal my tea, especially the Earl Grey.

OK, it’s time for lunch, so I need to roll. Happy Sunday, post-tornado watch, ya’ll.

  1. I’m enjoying reading your (uh, I mean J.D.’s) posts. Pretty funny stuff. I didn’t realize you did such creative bowl art. Groovy, cat. Your friend Fanny
    P.S. I think I must be the “writer friend” you spoke of who your mom was talking with late the other night. You know, the one who’s in the midst of finishing her novel.
