"Let's have a quiet night in tonight, since tomorrow we're going to go nuts."

I like how his entire weekend includes me. I like how second nature we have become with each other.

So my cousin Elena in Greece emails me to say that she's thinking we should go to Cuba for the summer and I'm like, "What am I going to do in Cuba?" And she goes, "Smoke cigars?"

And then two seconds later she goes "Oh, wait. Are you even allowed in Cuba?"

Why must she complicate my vacation? I don't know if I'm allowed in Cuba, as an American.

But even if I am, I'd rather not spend a month in Havana. The shores of my motherland are calling. It's been two years.
