I was in my favorite cigar bar this past weekend when I saw a regular that comes in once a month from San Antonio.
He’s a nice guy, Hispanic, super friendly.
Let’s call him Guillermo.
Guillermo’s usually with his wife but this time he has two friends with him one of which is fairly large.
Guillermo introduces his friends to me then says that the larger gentlemen used to be famous.
“Really?” I said in response.
“Yeah!” Guillermo says in reply then insists that his friend prove it by showing me a video.
Guillermo’s friend shows me a Subway commercial on his iPhone. The commercial is in Spanish and features him and Jared the Subway guy.
“He lost 100 pounds in six months on the Subway diet so they put him in a commercial,” Guillermo tells me.
“Holy crap!” I exclaim to Guillermo’s friend. “You lost 100 pounds by just eating Subway?”
Guillermo’s friend bursts into laughter.
“Hell no!” He says. “I did a whole lot of cocaine too!”
The trio explodes in laughter.
“Is that true?” I ask Guillermo.
“Yeah, he had to go to rehab and everything.”
Subway and cocaine – I hadn’t heard of that one before.
