it's been a whole week since i last rode the motorcycle, parked 2 streets away. those neighbors probably think i abandoned it or something. i went to belmont, where my parents were away on a supply run (baifu, restaurant depot, one south of boston, one north), but hailey was home. i let her out into the backyard where she sniffed around before running back inside the house. there were leftover ribs in the kitchen; i had 3 for lunch.
