A woman from Canada striked up conversation with me while work was super slow tonight. She told me she’s Asian and from Vancouver, but that her and her husband just got back from Beijing and that they don’t have toilets there, just holes in the ground… She said it gave her anxiety before she used the bathroom, because she knew she’d have to squat. (me thinking how do you talk to someone randomly about toilets while on a trip, not just amazing sites to see or whatever)
Then she carried on to say that she realized when she wondered why the Asian foreign exchange kids sat differently than the American kids in her pre-school it was because they were use to squatting.
My response “yep, that’s culture for ya”
It was hilarious.
Not to mention when she straight up said “yeah I’m Asian and from Canada. But I don’t have an accent, when I talk to people on the phone then meet them in person, they’re shocked.”
Angie to Louisiana: she was my close friend throughout high school, so artistic and smart, plays viola and cello so amazingly even though shes hard on herself about it,the only girl I’ve ever met who loves weed as much me. Stealing my moms expensive ass car to pick up boys and hit up downtown Tacoma, both looking at the pregnancy test then looking at each other, waking up in the morning and first thing putting on the cool kids and the pack for the first three hours of the morning just dancing,only having one nug to smoke having to shotgun every hit “bang for our buck”, sneaking out the window like fucking Ninjas on the weekend “okay, let’s make the fake bodies, Justin’s on his way”, staying at a 5 million dollar home (waterfront estate “Oyster Ranch”) but choosing to sleep in a tent outside so we can smoke all night. Smoking every-night and freestyling\writing songs and recording them on our phones. The Wizard voice that sounds like yoda and a crackhead mixed, making a remix to the beatles Eleanor Rigby which made her mom smile when she was pissed on the roadtrip, kissing boys at skate tour ;) , the arrival of the cutest puppy Dingus… Who would eat his own poop “he’s got a turd!! Get him!”, graduation practice… Roll call was taking too long so we went to the car to smoke, graduation night… $350 hotel suite with a jacuzzi in the middle of the living room.. Tons of drugs.. 24 hr pool and hottub.. Free breakfast.
Courtney to Texas: Picking me up everyday from school just to hangout and smoke blacks with our friends, skipping school to get a black during advisory and tore your foot open when i opened the door when we were running “can you still drive?!” (as her foots bleeding and she starts screaming), beerpong. Pong. BP. Throwing crazy ass parties to where we have to get james or brad to kick everyone out, 26 blunts smoked at Jacks in 1 night, go to her house during school punch in garage code make a sandwich walk up stairs “are you on lunch?” “no, advisory.. I gotta go.”, this is Eric from Texas let’s sing to him on skype(always singing for guys she knows from Texas), “i need a cigg when is your break?I’m on my way” , adopted Cannon (american bulldog pitbull mix,our son) showering together, laying in bed naked half the day, getting irritated with all the animals (4 dogs, two turtles and a bearded dragon), crying so hard when me and Andrew broke up.. “stop crying I fucking hate it, now I know how you feel when I get upset about Jake.”
Brandon to the military: buying spray paint, skating, walking downtown, “did you get fucking laid yet?”, smoking hookah everywhere, watching movies..”want a sandwich?”, getting drunk and talking, fighting then my shoulder popped out “I’m not fucking faking, stop!”, skating more, laying on the slide at the school talking, “come pick me up, I’m bored”,” fuck Jacob Starr, I’m not letting my bestfriend spend her whole springbreak in her room crying (takes me to carnival), moves to Idaho,He loses 70 lbs, talk for hour on the phone everyday moves back, skating drinking, joins military “what are you doing?”.. “smoking a cigarette”.. “fuck you bitch”
Nobody knows how fucking hard it is to lose your bestfriends. You can try to keep in touch, but it’s never the same.
I hate it here.
Fucking hate it.
And it all started because Courtney called me and said kings of Leon came on the radio.
