After scarfing down my nilupak I head upstairs to the common room where Dad's watching TV. He recently discovered Netflix and is being cute about it. He's watching Chef's Table. He gestures for me to sit beside him. "So, Mom's having a good day," I whisper. "She is!" he says proudly. "Forget about that prison incident, she was just being dramatic. Don't believe that she wants you gone that long, bonito." Two Bonitos in a day! Have I won a contest? This is jackpot. He takes notes while watching. "I'll cook this pasta tonight." I already look forward to tonight.
