13 days until I return from West Palm
10 days until my brother Jay’s birthday
9 days until I depart Charlotte for West Palm
6 days until I leave for Charlotte
5 days until my last day of playing bingo (how do you say, “Where’s the nearest mahjong parlor?” in Mandarin?) and the day I have to be out of my house
4 days until my last day of work and my friend Jeff’s birthday
2 days until I find out if I’ll be visited by just the Easter Bunny, or if the yin to his yang, the Easter Warthog, will show up with him (What? Your parents never told you about the Easter Warthog? I’ll bet they kept you in the dark about the Thanksgiving Eagle as well then, eh? Well, stay in the dark no longer folks; if you’ve been mischievous the previous year then the Thanksgiving Eagle will swoop past your house and take a dump on your bedroom window, leaving you a marked man for all the world to see. I honestly can’t remember what the Easter Warthog does, but I’m positive that it’s something along the lines of him belching/drooling on your Easter candy if you’d been bad, or that he snoozes under your bed constantly flatuating if you’ve not been good about cleaning your room…oy, crap, I have some last minute cleaning to do…)
1 day has passed since I last fudged something up; even though I marked it on my calendar, I didn’t remember until last night at work around 1am that I was ‘sposed to call my cousin Kyle to wish him a happy birthday; sorry, boo! Happy birthday and I love you!
4 days have passed since my procrastination finally caught up with me; I purchased my flight, but since I waited so long I couldn’t get one on May 6th when Ig leaves. Earliest out was on the 8th, and so Ig will be wandering Beijing for a couple days before me…sorry, brotha!
12 hours have passed since declaring at work, “Four more shifts and then I won’t be working for an entire year!”
