Love me some El Guapo.

Lance, in a way, each of us has an El Guapo to face. For some, shyness might be their El Guapo. For others, a lack of education might be their El Guapo. For us, El Guapo is a big, dangerous man who wants to kill us.

P.S. Apparently/Allegedly, "El Guapo" is Spanish for "The Handsome One" or "The Ladies' Man"

Unlike El Guapo, I did not receive a sweater for my 40th (but I did go to White Castle).
