New York 4, 5, 6 - Fourth of July
I said, "Avery, you can call me whatever you want."
He said, "how about Chet Nucklechest?"
Avery saw a video of Jake today. It is the first time that he has ever seen him in anything other than a photograph. Wouldn't you know it, the camera zooms in just as the late then-adolescent father-to-be lights up a cigarette and takes a long, satisfying drag. I think we could trace any future smoking habits Avery may develop back to that moment.
From time to time we build our own personal bombs out of secrets and grow them silence. Due to rain there were no fireworks today, but I dropped my own personal bomb.
Fifth of July: Enjoyed the fireworks by the lake of some unpronounceable town.
Sixth: Began the voyage home. Valve acting up.
