I arrived at my little brother’s place, ready to spend the day with my sister. I was needing a day like this so bad. My sister Julissa and I have always been very close when growing, but not that we both have so much going on and live in different boroughs, we don’t always have the time to hang out. Today was the best exception.
First of all I was starving, and she had mangu waiting for me. After being all stuffed, the little bro Jeremy received a package in the mail, his new professional xbox remote. I don’t play video games, so I didn’t really see the difference. But hey, if it makes him happy why not? He locked himself in his room right away, Kiki was trying to figure the damn thing out too.
I needed to get rid of everything I just ate, I have the habit of walking right after I eat. Jula wasn’t up to that, so bike riding it was. We headed to the point, where we used to bike ride all the time as kids. The view is still beautiful, it makes you forget about your troubles for just a split second.
When we got to back to the house, we were all exchanging apps. Trying to figure out what the next big thing is. Kiki introduced me to “Periscope” which I pretty much got the hang of, but I didn’t really find convinient, especially since everything is live and at the moment.
I was ready for some wine, like I usually am. I rode to the liquor store and some creepy old men where to trying to hit on me, I was disgusted. Who ever told these men that that’s okay? Go pick up your saggy balls off the floor old man.
Wine was served, I was making tostones and my father was on the grill. It’s been a very long time since we have all out hung out together and it not being a special occasion. The only one missing was my brother Lu. But hey, it happens… almost all of us are out of the house now. We’re all growing up. Making time though, that’s where it counts.
