Saturday march 14th Rirou woke up slow like he does every Saturday, with a small difference, his wife did not have to work that Saturday due to the Corona Virus. The rest was like a normal Saturday, however the definition of normal can go very far.
Rirou is a stay home Dad and Saturday is the first day off the week that he does not have to rush. So, Rirou usually have breakfast in bed with his son Luke, normally his favorite scramble eggs and bacon. Since both have a strong connection specially thru music the first part of the day starts with lots of music and laughs. The morning play list is a little smooth with a good mix of Sublime, Incubus, Toddler music and Luke’s favorites Insane in the brain, Jump around and thunderstruck.
Around 12 o’clock, yeah they really wake up slow on Saturday, they move to the play room. Life on planet earth can be pretty fast, well at least before COVID-19, after this pandemic might be different or not. Anyways, Luke goes to work, and as a kid his job is to play. Rirou goes to clean the house, witch is pretty much play time for Rirou. He puts the famous Looking good Naked punk playlist that consist in: The off spring, pennywise, Foo fighters, Rancid, Sex pistols, Social distortion and green day. Luke as a good little punk ask for the music loud while they play (click here for the playlist) During that period there is a lot of air guitar, air drums, the broom becomes a microphone and a guitar, cleaning bottle becomes weapons and there is a lot of ass shaking, and sometimes mooning. Yeah, Rirou became the king of mooning since 1997 when he skipped school to skateboard, and went by the school and told his friends to look at the window, and when they did Rirou moon the whole school on the top of the skateboard. No one has ever done that!
After cleaning the house Rirou usually shower and finally takes of the pajamas to go to the park. Since they were in quarantine going to the park was not possible, so Rirou made a dream come true: He shower and put back a new set of pajamas. For the first time he was able to use pajamas all day long. He was not going anywhere, no human contact besides family, and that was like a dream.
Around 4 o’clock was time for the second meal. Rirou usually eats a snack and a meal, except saturday’s where usually there are 2 meals and a cake. Usually Rirou start cooking after the park. Well, Rirou does not call it cooking, he called making love with food, kinda of creppy but Rirou believes food and house are sacred and must be made/organized with love.
By that time is 6 o’clock and Luke jump in the ipad for 90 minutes and Rirou and his with enjoy Curb your enthusiasm while Luke enjoy his cartoons. After that is time bath and bed time for Luke where they dance to Jah music. Rirou close the day performing Reiki on the family, and after that Rirou goes writting and play the guitar. Rirou sleeps late and he loves to write under the moon in his patio…. and that is a normal Saturday form them….Pretty peaceful day, and its always better when they are all together.
