They speak a different language in New Orleans. I still haven't figured out what the last two people said to me.
I think MM. is turning into one of them. He keeps saying, "Hey y'all..." to everyone. OK, this confirms it...he asked if we want to go eat at Bubba Gump's Shrimp Company.
Sure, Forrest.

So we went to Bubba Gump's for dinner and this whole restaurant is themed after the movie "Forrest Gump". The place is filled with movie memorablilia. The waitress said she would do a little dance for us if we answered the movie trivia questions correctly. Ooooh goody, I can't wait. Surprisingly, we got alot of them right including... What is Forrest's favourite book? You don't know? No dance for you then.

So far we have shopped at Winn-Dixie (I thought that was a dog) and the Piggly Wiggly. I'm not joking. This is a real shop and none of the employees seemed embarrassed to be working there. They all acted as if it was perfectly normal to walk around with a pig's head logo on their chests. Oh well, (shrug) that's life in Louisiana...

(Forrest Gump's favourite book- 'Curious George'.)

2 brilliant observations:

Wow! Bubba Gump and Piggly Wiggly all in the same night!!!
So, I'm dying to know what Forrest's fav. book is? (this is before Twilight, so I know that's not it...) (:
I do have a few regrets about my Twilight comments. (just that I should have kept some of it to myself) I was very opinionated last week. I hope I didn't make enemies for you!!
Well y'all have a fine time, can't wait to see your ringlets!

New Orleans is one of those places I've always wanted to visit, but never have. Lucky you!
