The other day at the beach I came across this big bamboo stick. It was very nostalgic for me. It reminded me of my stick collection at my house in Memphis; I was going to take it back home and start a new California collection. But Mom gave me that look, and I understood that is not going to happen. So I told Mom that I am thinking of mailing it to the Pandas in the zoo. I hear they like to eat it. And there was that classic Mom eye roll.
