So we're on the 15frwy on our way down &Clara's car begins to over heat in this fuckin 100 degree weather here we are dieing... i call my mom &dad in front of us &my moms like turn on the heater? the heater? so yea, here i am losing a few lbs in a small ass mustang with a giant in the backseat.. she super had to make some shade lol ok SHE WAS PISSED! lol hahahahaha needless to say while we drove threw the car wash, yea no ventilation equals sweaty bitches! Clara having too much going on in just 1 ear alone.. 5 peircings, bluetooth bamboos &glasses lol we make a few pit stops end up going to EZ Lube, turns out when her oil was changed they put 2inches too much in.. so yea, freeee as they drain some..

I have never showered outside the shower before, lol i shampooed my hair, conditioned it, shaved my legs all outside the shower so when it was my turn cause i called dibs on a 2nd! s when it was my turn all i hd to do was soap my body a few times..

He was so surprised it was cute, he had people from way back in his kindergarden days out here... just to celebrate his 70th birthday&his presence.. Amazing how surprised he was &how loved he is... when he got up to talk on the mic he was something along the lines of star struck, speechless. His barber for 20yrs was there His grade school friends who they had music group called "Hypnotics" who were choreographed was there i mean it's only the life you wish to live... i met family, friends i have not met in my life, i reunited with family i never know cause of such young age... i was able to meet on special man i've been longing to meet... i knew i had a photographer uncle who by the way is going blind, but has tons of equipment, so here's the thing his presence alone was touching.. but when he offered me over $50,000 worth of camera equipment if i was serious bout photography... he'd like to know i showed enough interest to at least go to school.. so that BLEW MY MIND!!!!!!!! he wants to give me his equipment.. so the night went by i was 'photographer of the night" my grandparents &friend &older black couple made me jealous all the true couple love in the air made me drop a few tears... i only want what they are living.. when my years come, my Nanny had a touching little speech ending with "In the words of Marvin Gaye 'Let's get on...'" the music played the old people boogied on down, old pictures were busted out, bathroom photo sessions took place with Clara &Monique &reminiscing &love was definitely in the air! even puppy love :P (when little Austin falls in love with Clara) The night ended well with a slightly buzzed grandpa who actually went to go buy six packs by the dozen lol after the last call for alcohol..
