Today, Akemi unintentionally coined a new phrase: “Deja vie” which, when you think of it, actually makes more sense than the actual phrase: “Deja vu”. “Deja vu” translates to “already seen”, whereas “Deja vie” translates to “already lived” – which is what you are, in effect, claiming when you experience deja vu.
Anyway, all this to say that, from now, please use Akemi’s new and improved term: Deja Vie.
Speaking of Akemi, she is super excited and looking forward to our L.A. trip at the end of the month. The way I understand it, while I’m away pitching those five days, she’ll be spending her time at the nearest Trader Joe’s. THAT’S how much she loves Trader Joe’s (!).
She has also insisted we switch hotels from our usual mainstay to somewhere else – another hotel that, curiously enough, is famously dog-friendly. So dog-friendly, in fact, that they even boast a special room service menu exclusively for pets.
At first I assumed she was thinking of bringing Suji and Lulu along. But no. It turns out, she has a secret agenda. And it may have something to do with THIS dog –
He’s a blind, special needs senior looking for a good home.
Now I’m not sure he’s even still going to be available when we get into town in three weeks, but if he is…
I hope he likes room service.
