From "Why God Sent Guillermo" (alt. "Señor Pelvis")

“Me encanta the way you dance,” Guillermo told me the night Lisa introduced us at that dart bar that played heartland rock and pseudoflamenco. “Enchanting!” For you monolinguals, “Ghee-Yermo” is how he said it - but in Guillermo’s night life, everyone called him Señor Pelvis. His lithe hips writhed toward me in faded jeans and an antique steer belt buckle. His shirt was short-sleeved, a faint, restrained plaid, open deep enough to reveal the gold manatee and a small slew of other charms nesting in his thatch of black chest hair.
