Clumsy Crafter: Lafayette

Thursday, April 29, 2010


We are in Lafayette for the wedding of a good friend. They are one of those couples that really compliment each other and make each other happy. I'm thinking it's going to be a pretty good wedding.

For those of you who have never visited southern Louisiana, let me just tell you that it is a country by itself. There are weird things here and very different from the other parts of the United States. It can be a HUGE culture shock if you are not prepared.

So here is my east texan traveling to southern louisiana travel guide:

1. Alligators are not everywhere. You will find more alligators at miniature zoos that offer alligators or on people's plates at dinner time.
2. Speak french poorly and you will get along here.  I don't know what these cajun people are saying half the time but maybe that's because I took spanish in school. I have learned that "ya get enough yah," means... "did you have enough to eat?" In the same way that you put O on the end of all spanish words, just put the word "yeah" at the end of every sentence and you can now speak cajun!
3. Add cajun seasoning to everything, even the bath water.
4. Every road goes the opposite way than it appears to go. be aware.
5. Wildlife is a cajun's best friend but they do not discriminate! Hang it on the wall or let it free in a pasture, it's all the same down here.
6. It is Mardi Gras 364 days a year. Fat Tuesday shall remain sacred but the other days are wild and and invitation to have a party.
7. If someone is speaking about the crew, they are not talking about their friends and family or even the pit crew for Nascar, they are talking about the Mardis Gras group or society that they belong to.
8. You will find Mardis Gras beads in areas of your body that you did not know existed after a visit to southern Louisiana. It's like sand after the beach, but worse.
9.Anything that moved at one time can and will be stuffed into a chicken and sold for human consumption.
10.  Shocks are not necessary for your car.  The road will just open up and swallow your tires anyway. Why go to the expense of adding shocks to lessen the blow? not worth it. Save your money for french lessons.
11. The Saints won the Super Bowl. What else matters?
