Pueblo enters his house, and his mother's railing at him, "You get off of work at six o'clock!" "I do not!" responds Pueblo. "I get off of work at nine o'clock!" They get into an argument about the hour of night that he's been coming home, and his mother asks him where he's been working. Um. Call me crazy but, shouldn't she KNOW where her child is working? Okay. Okay. This is only reinforcing my liking Pueblo and, I have to tell you, I don't LIKE it. His own mother doesn't know where he works? Is this his fault or hers? I really don't know. I mean, when I was in high school, I couldn't GET a job outside of school unless my parents knew about it. Which begs me to ask two pertinent questions. Has Pueblo TOLD his mother where he's working, and she's too wrapped up in her own stuff to remember? Or has Pueblo NOT TOLD his mother where he's working, and therefore he's the fucking tool I've become comfortable hating?
My questions aren't answered, because Pueblo tells his mother that "all [he] need[s] are April 14th and April 17th." Wow. The two dates that surround my birthday. Do you think this is some sort of sign? Oh. Wait. No. This was filmed over a year ago. What the hell happened to me during my birthday in 2000? Oh. That's right. I went out with Wedge and Hank4 and got drunk and fell off a stool at the Twisted Lizard. Okay. So the fact that Pueblo's gym absences fall on either side of my 2000 birthday really don't have any relevance whatsoever. Great.
Oooooh. Wedge just brought me another strawberry-mango-vodka concoction. Oh. Love Wedge. Love him. "Love you!" I scream as he heads back into the living room to continue his perusal of Yuen Woo-ping's wire work. "Uh-huh," he responds, shoving his ass into my sofa. Yum. Strawberry-mango-vodka goodness. Slurp.
"They have rules, Pablo," says Pueblo's mother, bringing me back to the task at hand. Pueblo and his mother continue to argue as Pueblo's VO tells us, "I feel trapped. My mom and I have been having problems for awhile." Pueblo's become so desperate that he'll try anything to just get out.
