Time in a ball of foam.

February 22nd, 2014, 9am

I forgot to pack my shaving cream and so I grabbed whatever was available at the airport — pulled it off the rack, bought it, stuffed it into my bag without thinking, to be forgotten until the next morning when I had to shave.

This was a brand I don’t remember buying in years, if ever, but the moment I squeezed the cream out I was instantly reminded of my father, and was transported back to being a young teenager and being taught how to shave, three decades and almost 7,000 miles away.

Must see! Charming, spacious and immaculate. Newly remodeled, granite counter top, utilities included, walk-in closet, views of the Bay. Great location, close to restaurants, MUNI, Safeway, 280 and 101, etc. Okay, a bio for real: http://about.me/benito.vergara
