click here for pt 1 In the weeks after the party, Maggie and I grew further and further apart. Kim had planted a seed in my mind the night of the party and it had grown into an entire crop.  It began by my asking myself why was I really with Maggie. Was she special to […]

click here for pt 1 It wasn’t a typical Brooklyn house party. I knew that as soon as I walked in the door and spotted a white couple sitting on the steps chatting and sipping wine…from real glasses! And, when the female of the two said, “Hey Loco!” I realized who she was. It was […]

click here for pt 1 Maggie and I had not made the fact that we were involved known at the job. Not that there was any policy against employee dating. There wasn’t to my knowledge.  And we’d never discussed it, either, so it wasn’t a conscious decision. It had started as a secret rendezvous on top of […]

click here for pt 1 I wrote a post a couple of years back- one of my first- a pretty crude piece called, “the J-Factor.” Some of you might remember it. If not, take a peek. To summarize, it was about my infatuation with Japanese girls when I first arrived here in Japan. How there was […]

click here for pt 1 New York City is made up of five boroughs: Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx, Staten Island, and of course Manhattan. When most people (except New Yorkers) picture New York, they picture Manhattan, big city of dreams and what not.

click here for pt 1 Maggie was pretty in a girl-next door who could be a model if she were slimmer and taller kinda way. But, with that ambition shattered, she became a cosmetologist instead and hustled Clinique products at Lord & Taylor’s wearing a white lab coat and a brilliant smile. I used to call her […]

Live from Locohama, S2/E28: Survival of the Suicidal

Well, it’s natsu yasumi (summer vacation) for us ALTs, thus the pause in my Reality Show. I’ve been spending most of my vacation thus far knee deep in my summer writing project / catharsis / purging / self-therapy series I call: Hi! My name is Loco…and I am a racist! For those of you who, despite it drifting slightly off […]
