Alix moved from Uzbekistan to Israel
then 31 years ago he came to Brighton Beach with his wife.
He likes Russian food but on his 62nd birthday a week ago
he wanted sushi. Everyone asks
if I like driving, he said. I hate it. I’ve always hated driving
but I’m a man of habit. Driving is my job. What I like is
playing classical guitar. My son lives with us. He’s
a cop. Every two weeks he has another girlfriend.
We fight because my wife and I know he should be
married already. Enough said Alix. My daughter is married
and lives in Israel with her family. A husband and two
daughters. I don’t have to like the husband. That’s her problem.
I work every day from
3 in the morning until 3 in the afternoon.
When I come home I watch The Discovery Channel.
We go with five other couples on vacation every year.
Seven years in a row we’ve gone to Aruba. This year too.
One of the men is religious. The rest of us eat
a lot of shrimp. What else do you want to know?
