Femme, your package arrived!


Marcella, you have to come over this evening and help me… I mean… you know what I mean.

And, ladies, party, we are totally, we need to have a sex toy party. Wow! These things…

I baked.

I went to Safeway. With an entire pie.

It was still warm.

Reza wasn’t there.

I guess I could have frozen it. Or just kept it until the next day. But I didn’t.

I felt stupid.

I worked on my resume.

I felt stupid.

I texted Tyler about weed.

“Don’t be stupid Mom,” he texted back. “I’ll bring you some when I come home in May. And whatever you do, don’t go buying it at the train station.”

Well. I guess I now know where to buy it if I decide to be stupid.

John’s mom called.

I let it go to voice mail.

The voice mail asked, petulantly, if I was punishing her for being John’s mother. She had raised him right. He was not the sort of boy to do these things. He wouldn’t talk to her and tell her what was going on. She was upset. She was a failure. What had she done wrong? Surely there was something I had done wrong? Surely, there was something we could all do to fix this? Didn’t John and I remember how much we had loved each other?

True thing: no. I don’t remember how much we had loved each other.

All I remember is those awful few days around Christmas, and my suffering in January and February, and…

Fucking cherry pie.
