Kailua Interlude: the comforts of 2 o’clock in the afternoon.

I was raised to wait…

  • at a babysitter’s on Long Island for my parents to come home.
  • in the St. John’s University parking lot for my dad to get out of his MBA night classes.
  • in the principal’s office after class for my mom to finish her work so we could start our long journey home.
  • staring at the sky in a Honda Accord hatchback parked in Jamaica, Queens for my dad to emerge from the subway.

In Kailua there are days that I’m waiting again. Elements of my comfort:

  • 12PM Little House on the Prairie
  • 2PM Beverly Hills 90210
  • a couch, a pillow, a blanket
  • peanut butter and jelly
  • chicken noodle soup
  • fruit cups
  • jon and kate plus 8 on dvr
