Clare always called this the “hot ass boyfriend” photo. She kind of oversold it, and I’m stoked her favorite photo she snapped of me was taken at my old stomping grounds of Huntington Beach, California.

I salvaged this snap from her Facebook page which was later deleted after her passing. This was her phone lockscreen wallpaper, and it made me feel so proud to be with her.

This is only a short blog tonight and horribly soppy sweet. I’ll inject the next tale of Clare and me with wit from the ceaseless fountain of mirth that is my brain. Perhaps a tale of how Norwalk is not Anaheim.

I do look damn hawt in this photo. Once a SoCalifornian, always a SoCalifornian. Good call, Hua Hua.
