Road Trip

Mrs. Green and I are taking a quick trip to New Orleans this week and part of next. I've always wanted to go there, and while the weather in July isn't ideal (or even tolerable in the middle of the day), I'm really excited about it. Here are a few reasons why:

  • New Orleans has great jazz. Jazz is my favorite music.
  • New Orleans has great food. I love food. It was a Paul Prudhomme cookbook I picked up on a lark that got me interested in cooking.
  • New Orleans is a drinking-friendly town. I have been known to take a drink now and then.
  • New Orleans has a high crime rate. I am a criminal.
  • New Orleans is known as “The Big Easy”. I am big and easy.

It's like the town was made for me! Assuming I don't die of caloric and/or alcohol overdose, the diet / healthy living thing starts when we get back.

No, seriously. I mean it this time.

I believe you left off one super reason to be excited about your trip......

Of course. Had you not been there, it would not have been nearly as cool!

Just don't fall for the old, I bet you $10 I can tell you where you got your shoes, scam. Also, don't leave the well lighted areas in the French Quarter at night. Trust me, I lived there for 3 years.
