We do a lot of driving around on Thursday. We pass the aftermath of a pretty bad car accident and then a block later a couple are getting their wedding photos taken outside a cemetery. The cemetery has very nice scenery and I think they’re using it for that reason, and the photographer is probably not capturing the parts that are explicitly death-related, but it is a cemetery.


We get dinner at another place Eric recommended, a burger place called Counter in Santa Monica. I drive us there and we park on a street lined with ice-cream colored houses and as we walk to the restaurant there’s a really nice sunset going on. At a certain point you have to be okay with the phrase “That house is cute” coming out of your mouth without a trace of irony.


It is one of those days where you sort of forget to eat so that combined with the fact that the restaurant is, as advertised, really really good, mean that at least in the moment it feels like one of the best meals of my life. There are chili fries and side salads before the main event. The main event is burgers the size of your face, the toppings for which you personally select by checking boxes on a form full of delicious ideas. You are mostly accustomed to checking boxes on tax forms or at the doctor’s office, so it feels good to use your box-checking technique for something positive, something that will end in you being full of bacon and avocado and things. We are hungry and overwhelmed by choice so we mostly elect to go with our guts and check whatever sounds good without worrying whether or not the toppings and dressings make sense together. When our burgers finally arrive, they are each like a little former Soviet state, expressions of new-found freedom joyously and carelessly explored. They are a glorious fucking mess. Mine’s a real fucking mess. Dan pretty much nails his. But they’re beautiful, all of them. And then oh God the milkshakes. Our waiter treats us so right. I even drink a Mr. Pibb, the Cadillac of non-diet sodas.


After dinner we drive aimlessly around Santa Monica looking at streets for a while. A good day is one full of productive creative work that ends in great hamburgers and poking around suburbia with your friends. My car is full of knobs I can play with. I even have a sunroof.
