I had a few too many and ended up at the Burrito place that I went to when I had too many so long ago.  The same guy was working the counter.  I said to him, "Wow, you're still here.  You were here like 7 or 8 years ago, and you look the same!"  He said he had been there 14 years.

Good lord.  I have been living and drinking in the city that long.

Sounds like a scene from the movie "Clerks"... or maybe "Clerks III: The Burrito of Doom."

Fungus: The Burrito of Doom is a great name for a giant eating challenge burrito.

It's relative. You are young yet. Trust me.

I suppose you could have asked him what wisdom and virtues he'd acquired over the past 14 years. And the asked yourself!

It's possible that you've found a vacuum that neither space nor time can touch. Most bars I've frequented had almost the opposite effect.

David: Yeah, I'm hanging in there. Thanks, bud.

Gorilla: I think I did try to ask him that, but it was in broken Spanish and I couldn't understand his response that was in rapid perfect Spanish.

Scott: Where you been, buddy? I think that Burrito House is one of those spots that really has NOT changed over the years. As far as greasy burritos go for late night, it's the best. It doesn't have that grease that runs down your arm, but it does have SOME grease, unlike that Chipotle stuff.
