It was afternoon when my roomies and I finally rolled out of our beds. Each of us, in the just-awake stupor, fumbled around the kitchen to break fast. We decided to concoct delicious rou bing (meat pancakes) from the leftover dumpling filling, and slump in couches for an unexpectedly intense movie.
It was a wonderful bonding moment, between us musketeers. We were three very different fellas, brought together by chance and happenstance. Aaron was an electric guitarist from out west, travelin’ with a super soft kitty. Jeff was a fierce mountain climber with a super sweet pet snake. I was a daydreamer, no pets yet.
Evenings around apartment filled with vibrations of guitar strings. Blues, jazz, metal, all kinds of music livened the place. Aroma of delicious home cooking also escaped to the streets. Both of my roomies were both excellent cooks.
Both of them also had excellent pets. I met Twist, Aaron’s shy kitty whom I got to befriend. ❤
I also met Jess Snak E, Jeff's companion ball python. I remembered the first time I watched her eat, saw her unhinging her tiny jaw, struggling and wiggling around her food.
Alas, as the ebb and flow of time goes, they will be leaving elsewhere very shortly. Until that day comes, I hope to have just a few more lazy Sundays with them.
