“You know,” she said. “I’m just glad he is happy. He’s my kid.” “Your son told me it was nice for him to meet a really old trans person like me,” I tell her, and we both laugh. “Sounds like something he would say.” she says. “I’m glad you’re here.” she tells me.
I mentioned his name and she nodded yes, that was him. So that was why she was so nice to me today. Told me where to park so the security camera would be pointed right at my truck. Gave me a giant room on the quiet side. Because she is family. Her son makes her my family.
“I hope it went okay.” she says. “I think you met my son tonight, he said he was going to go.” Right away I knew who she was talking about. Young trans kid. Funny. Happy. Handsome. Confident. The young man who laughed so hard looked like he was going to fall off his chair.
Had a gig in Houston BC tonight. Small mill town famous for its truck dealerships. The parking lot of this hotel is full of just trucks. The woman at the front desk knew I had a gig at the library and asked me how it went. “This town is not very progressive” she tells me.
The waitress at this diner where I am having lunch brought her daughter to work and the daughter is sitting at the lunch counter eating noodles and colouring in her colouring book and being such an angel and it is giving me all the feelings right now.
The gender of the day is a preoccupied crow.
Much respect to the cashier at the Safeway in Smithers with the giant beehive hairdo who just sold me a roasted chicken. Your efforts to rise above it all and make an effort to be fabulous do not go unnoticed. Don’t ever stop shining.
“I’ve Been Woken Far Too Early by business dudes talking super loud in the hotel hallway every morning for ten days in a row” and other northern road stories by Ivan Coyote. Nobody cares what Ed said about the numbers from last quarter. Not even the guy you’re shouting at.
I located and disposed of one mouldy dog biscuit, an expired non-dairy creamer (not mine) and an ancient french fry so it smells much fresher in there. I’ve basically been living out of my truck since June 1st so it needed a good scrub.
I cleaned the ever living hell out of my truck when I landed in Smithers and now I feel like I can continue on this tour for a few more days. I got Armour All on my breakfast banana but only on the peel so I should be okay.
Today's gender is an enormous dangerous hedgehog.
There has been a possible ammonia leak at the rec centre in Hazelton where my reading was scheduled. It has been moved to the library at the high school just up the road. Start time is still 1pm.
Tour day 8: Raining and cold and grey morning, giving way to a little sun on the highway. Trying to eat well and stay right in my head on this lonesome road. Missing home a lot, and grateful to my love Sarah and my family and friends for their heartstrings.
Check out @ivancoyote in #hazelton today at 1 pm at the Upper Skeena Rec Centre! https://twitter.com/rainbownation13/status/1172539233782775808
Today's gender is the smell of a library.
I can't believe my son is in his last year of high school and I know that he is nervous about navigating the world outside of school. Although he's not as obsessed with books as I am, I know that he will benefit from reading @ivancoyote's Rebent Sinner https://bit.ly/2mjnJ3f
I’ve never seen a puppy pull a prank before and this was too cute not to share🐶
A reminder: people are a lot more beautiful and loving in person.
