Mesa, with old people, all over 50, who are obsessed with gourds, who do not talk to me, who serve me traditional yet not accurate meals, i do not drink, i wish i could drink, i’m drinking now, i ate a deviled egg before supper, the old people glared at me, they glared at me when i smoked a cigarette, i do not know these old people, they don’t talk to me, they are my mother’s friend’s mother’s friends, they are obsessed with gourds, so fucking obsessed, they have a book called “gourd culture” on their coffee table, we prayed, it was short, i ate, i got into a fight with my sister, it was awkward, we smoked more, glared at more, my mother made us write thank you cards, i wrote one to my mother’s parents and my father’s parents and sent a text to my editor saying ‘thank you for being such a great editor’ and he responded with ‘thank you for ruling’ and i started to feel really sappy and thankful and grateful because i lost a lot of money yesterday in court and i hate being broke but i’m fucking happy anyway and i have this awesome girlfriend who puts up with all my shit and i put up with all her shit and that way we can love each other fully and i might have started to cry, but i think i was texting and i fell asleep and dreamed of seeing the Dandy Warhols in concert and stepping in psychedelic mushrooms up to my thighs, a thick muddy paste of magical mushrooms, wizard fungi, all of them colored like a rainbow and i was eating them like they were piles of melted ice cream cuz that’s the texture they had and i was so happy and i drove home and my sister got a haircut because she needs a change and i wondered if i need a change and we argued some more on the long drive home and i got super drunk and we watched Waking Life but it made my head ache and so i smoked a lot and my sister and i made up so then my sister and i got pretty drunk and that’s what i’m thankful for.
