Luis Macias: he is not young any more, fashionably speaking. He does not live in the place where he was born; that would be impossible for his mental state. He is neither rich nor famous. He does not have a full time job either. He is not married, he does not have a car or a house at the beach. He does not know what a suit or a tie are. He simply is not part of your expectations of life at all.
