Rubio's, Home of the Fish Taco
So, I don't know how many Southern California types out there know the chain of taquerias to which I refer up there, but many years ago, I was smitten with a girl (that many years ago, yes, she was a girl) who lived in San Diego. We went to the ocean and on the way back, got something to eat at this fast food place. I got a cup that could be refilled for 49 cents With Any Purchase At All Rubio's Locations.

That last bit, I'm copying, because I have that same cup here in front of me. Actually it says .49 and then a cents sign. Which sounds like about half a penny. But that's not important right now.

Actually, none of this is important. Just the same, I'm continuing on to the point (such as it is) of this ramble. Near the bottom of the cup, there's text that reads "Expires Dec. 31, 1990".

So. I know full-on people that have been on this planet less time than this cup. Somehow that's hard for me to fathom.

you're making me crave a fish taco like you wouldn't believe. I haven't been to Rubio's for awhile, it seems like as they've gotten bigger, they haven't gotten better. There not bad, just not consistent.

I know the cup you speak of, I know the time you speak of, and those were some unbelievable fish tacos.

I wish I could go back there.

Appearantly, "Taco Del Mar" ripped off Rubio's. It took me many years to have the nerve to try a fish taco, and yeah, they're pretty tasty.

While I sit and muse about this cup, it amazes me that a fast food cup is so durable. Almost all of the green ink has washed off, so the Rubio's logo is gone, as is the coloration from Pesky's lettuce filling. The red ink is still there, and I can still make out the title: "Endless Summer".
