she opened up the office for me even though i was not going to be paying for anything. she only works on commish.
how nice was that of her!??!
we spent two hours in there and when it was over i offered to drive her home because i know she doesn’t have a car and the uber prices right now are outta control.
she said, actually i need to do this one thing that should take about 20 minutes, so no thank you.
i said, right in your parking lot is one of my favorite taquerias in all of LA, Guisados, how about i get some tacos there and when im done i will bring you back something and drive you home.
she was all, omg thank you!
she used to do the books for movie execs, a studio or two, and still has some celeb clients who i cannot mention
but one for sure is A-list, the others i forgot about because of the xbi meddling with my brain.
so i sat there and these tacos are little. but each one is an adventure all their own.
youd think youd see these at a fancy art opening or billionaire party
but you can get six of them for nine bucks, $11 after tip
i sat there and quietly moaned with each bite while watching the cubs win.
when i was finishing up this big tall guy sat near me and bit into his platter of earthly delights.
i got up and threw out my trash and said
fucking unreal, arent they?
and his serious beverly hills face lit up
and he said
driving her home she told me that she had gotten COVID twice! once early on in January when no one knew what it was, but she had been an EMT in the great war so when she got her fever she drew a bath and soaked in it every other hour
“so i wouldn’t cook to death”
and after about 12 hours she beat the first huge fever.
i was all, you cured yourself of COVID!
she laughed. she should be retired. she has braces.
she says when she does retire she wants to do it overseas in asia somewhere.
i was all me too.
when i dropped her off she said, want my chicken soup, i didnt eat it for lunch.
i think after doing my taxes seeing how dirt poor i am she felt bad for me.
and im eating it now and it’s delicious.
