Having signed for Norwich City last January, winger Onel Hernandez has become hopelessly enamoured with life in East Anglia – well, at least one incredibly specific aspect of it, anyway.
The Cuban-born, former Germany U-18 international was interviewed by the Canaries’ match programme last weekend, in which he was asked how he was finding it living in Norwich.
His answer was a more rich and vivid depiction of what it means to be alive (and living near an Argos store) than could ever be imagined…
The pertinent and poetic passage reads thus:
I’d never seen an Argos before in my life. I walked inside and saw the catalogue with things you can order.
You can order bikes, TVs – we don’t have this in Germany. Argos has everything and I’ve never seen this in my life before.
When I need something, I buy it from Argos! I live in a perfect area.
Oh, to see Argos through fresh eyes. The wonder, the glory, the vast amount of stock that you’re not actually allowed to see until you’ve bought it.
