i just ate at santanas.
it is a mexican joint a few blocks away from my house.
last time i ate there i promised not to go back. i had eaten with a lady friend with whom i was at the time infatuated. she was unable to finish her dinner and i offered to take some of the weight off her shoulders by relieving her platter of a few choice items.
i put the food in my mouth, chewed, and swallowed. seconds later, as the food touched the inner lining of my personal self - something strange began to happen.
my mouth instantly became moist with an overabundance of saliva, my entire body heated a tenth of a degree, and i was minorly dizzy. my throat felt very sensative and as feelings reached my brain, the stomach was starting to uneat that which was already eaten.
in short, i managed to keep down the food at the cost of quality conversation and extreme concentration - this was the kind of concentration you use to not sh_t yourself on a plane as the fasten your seatbelt sign remains, or the concentration that forces itself on your memory after a cute girl gives you her number at a club when you're drunk, or the concentration that is required when you have one blinking heart left and ganon is just one arrow away from handing you the virgin princess.
i then had defeated santanas, but today i was not so fortunate.
as i was speaking with Edgar on the cell phone after ordering my food - a LARGE BUG flew INTO MY MOUTH and RIGHT INTO MY UVULA.
It was like a miniature punch to the mouth hole. i coughed and then inserted my hand, pulling out the soft dilapidated remains of a then crushed Santana Bug. I couldn't believe my eyes, it was the size of one quarter of a postage stamp but with little tendrils and dark floppy wings.
I looked around to see if i had been seen. I was not. This saddened me as i'm sure it would have rivaled the amuzement levels of even america's funniest home videos.
I explained to Edgar - he laughed.
I picked my food up from the counter and left.
this is "santana bug" inspired by the half gram of protein that delivered itself into the maw of a then starving artist - what a selfless decision for such a st_pid _gly m_ther fucker.
¿who's laughing now, Santana Bug?
