Meanwhile, me and the CaSt are at my parent's house: going to Curves with my mom, following them both around to doctor appointments, messing up the house with trains and dominos, playing cards with a tablefull of eighty-year-old faces I love, cooking enchalada dinners, buying peaches from a 100-year-old farm down the street, and enjoying the cedar-scented air.
