MEXICO CITY, Feb 4 2021 (IPS) – All of Erizo’s nightmares are the same. Since his return from the ocean – almost unrecognizable – every bad dream is identical. A wave punches his little boat and throws him into the deep sea where everything is so dark that he can’t even see his own hands.

Even when he swam with all his energy, this 31 year old fisherman was never able to set foot on the mainland and to him, the Mexican Pacific ocean slowly became a grave formed only of water.

When Erizo dies in his nightmare, he wakes up in real life, opening his mouth like a dying fish that desperately tries to gasp some air. Then, he and his wife are on a

The anomaly is partly due to the TikTok app, and its 3 billion and counting #tortillatrend hashtagged video views. It seems post-millennials and millennials, who make up more than 50 percent of the video-sharing app, are hoarding the near 20-inch flour and lard burrito-tortillas, then grilling them with cheese and, often, leftovers, inside.

Serrano posted a video on his TikTok, backed with the “Spam” country song by Muddy Boots and the Porch Pounders.

“People are scooping them up because of the challenge,” corroborated Rudy Serrano on January 25, “but I found some at Food Bowl Market and Deli.”

Serrano cooks at the Big Kitchen cafe on Grape Street in South Park, a half a mile north of the Cedar and Fern located supermarket.

“We downloaded the app because my five-year-old daughter likes
