hey ezra,
I'm holding down the fort just fine, thanks for trusting me.
Actually, we broke up after the night she had a bad trip. She's with some guy from the suburbs now. Not too worried. There is a girl at one of my deliveries that wants to go out next week. Seems a little more stuffy than most, but then again, I see her at her work.
Got word from mom and dad. They're planning on heading west for chanukah this year. We won't be dealing with the whole family, again, it'll just be them and Deb for a couple weeks. And they won't be staying here. Dad has someone he knew from the university that he'll be staying with. Dr. Carlson?
Just wanted to give you the heads up, in case you get inspired to stay on longer to avoid another holiday chaos. If you're not back for chanukah, I'm laying claim on your stuff.
Hope you're keeping safe and enjoying your time in Israel.

Subject: Ezra

Ezra emailed me last weekend and he said he's coming back at the end of June. He wanted to know if I could take a week off so we could have some time in Toronto before he heads back here. I won't be able to make it. La Grande Baguette tends to get a lot of wedding orders at that time and I'm already short-shifting the courier gig to make sure I don't lose my job with LGB. Any help from home would be appreciated.
Tell Deb and Mom I say hi and that I am sorry I won't be able to make it out this summer.

Subject: Re: Ezra

How am I supposed to go to school when I work two jobs? I just don't have the time for it.
I'm not going to abandon Ezra out here because you'll put me up again for school. I was lousy then, I'll be lousy now. I seriously doubt Ezra's moving back to Toronto when he gets back from Israel. And if he does, I'm not going to abandon the friends I've made here. And don't start about how they're "no-good, dead-end junkie bums". Not everyone is an academic.

I appreciate your concern, but right now I just want to enjoy my time outside of school. Can't you ever let up on "my path"? I'll find "my path" eventually. I don't see what getting on my case is going to help.

I'll see if LGB will give me the time off. The courier place is overstaffed, so they're not going to mind if I need the time. I doubt I'll get a week, but I'll try to get a weekend, okay?

  • Kapel is the pet form of Jacob, and I felt like incorporating a dual personality for Jacob. The family calls him Kapel, but know he goes by Jacob.

    His family, aside from Ezra, know little about his activities in the neighbourhood. Pressumably Ezra lives with Jacob when he's not travelling abroad, and it is Ezra's apartment.

    He's submissive to his family, but stands on his own two feet.

  • I like the way you did this via email. It shakes up the "form" we're starting to establish.

    Wow you're a prolific writer!

  • It's difficult to show two distinct sides of a person in a short-short story. I chose the email as a means to communicate how he communicates. I wasn't interested in what other people were saying to him, but what he was saying to others.

    I'm an amazing procrastinator, but yes, I've always writen copious amounts.

    I have an essay due in two hours that I cannot seem to get going.

  • It is indeed very distracting!

  • I need someone to notice Jacob's email address! I thought it was funny!

    :P

  • He's a bike-courier! Double-entendres! Oh, you love it!

  • hah! you're right, that *is* witty. (I hadn't noticed the bike courier thing prior.) :)

  • Whoa. That was cool. What if they blogged... here?

  • Yay, a character interaction with one of mine already! I love it!

  • yes, this is getting distracting. But hell yes, Lay on McDuff. And be damned he who calls "hold" first.
