Scout - - THE MUNCHIES - —Felipe Dio­kno, 25, trans­port data an­a­lyst

“Ba­con. Fried egg. Fried rice. Those are pretty much it. Those were my fa­vorite foods as a kid. There was a time in my life where I didn’t eat any­thing but ba­con, and that’s when I got re­ally sick; my par­ents had to trick me into eat­ing vegetables by putting it in my burger. I re­mem­ber the name of the ill­ness I had, but I’m not sure ex­actly what it was. It was called ‘pri­mary com­plex.’ I re­mem­ber in­tro­duc­ing my­self to my friend’s par­ents in kinder­garten: ‘Hi, I’m Felipe. I have pri­mary com­plex.’ My mom was like, ‘That’s not how you are sup­posed to in­tro­duce your­self.’”

(Googles “pri­mary com­plex.”) “Oh sh*t. It’s tu­ber­cu­lo­sis. (Laughs) Wow, I almost died.”
