I finally got to my drafting table to clean up the bag of things I chose to bring from my father's house after he died. I found what I'm certain is a receipt from the sort of side hustle lotteries Latinos run alongside the real lottery and it had sevens everywhere and he played it on my birthday. I don't remember making that distinction for this piece of paper but I'm glad I kept it and I hope I remember it because it made me feel loved and thought of by him even though he is gone. I guess this is a receipt for that receipt. I put that and the other things in 3 folders in my filing cabinet and I labeled them Papi. Under that I found the nice things Chris sent me and I will drink the booze tonight and I put his kind words and urgings in the folder labeled mementos.
