I’m home, friends. Let the month-long period in which I wake up every morning feeling depressed because I’m no longer in New Orleans begin. Seriously, it happens every time.
Although I’d love to launch into a detailed recap of my vacation (the people, the activities, the food), I woke up at 5 AM to be on a 7:30 flight home and well, I’m just plain tired. I can’t muster the strength to go through all the 100+ pictures I took or look at moments that are now only
distant not-so-distant memories. You understand, right? I knew you would.
But, fear no more my friends because I do plan on sharing something with you.
It’s a test. Multiple choice, true/false and fill in the blank. And you have 50 minutes to take it. Just kidding, it’s summer and there’s no real tests here
A Not-So-Serious Test
1. Joey is now once again a Coca-Cola addict after 4 clean months.
Answer: Remains to be undetermined but I think that far off look in his eye can only be a sign of bad things to come.
2. Egg salad sandwiches may be a cholesterol nightmare but they sure do taste good. Especially when your mom homemakes/packs it for you to eat at the airport.
Answer: Undeniably true.
3. First real meal in New Orleans?
A. A snoball
B. A muffaletta
D. A beignet
If you have no idea what any of those foods are feel free to skip to number 4.
Answer: It was crawfish. Don’t judge, it’s totally normal. And don’t think I even came close to eating that sausage.
4. My new favorite hobby is .
If you answered ‘taking pictures of Joey tweeting, eating or just making weird faces’ then you’re correct.
Lookin good, boo. Lookin good.
Not that the faces I make are much better…
5. You’re never too old to ride the carousel.
Answer: True. Duh. And I’m clearly enjoying the ride a little too much as evidenced by that ‘I’m in my own world’ look on my face.
6. The scariest thing you will see on Bourbon Street is .
A. Your mom watching you chug a “Hand Grenade”
B. The ground. That thing is DIRTY
C. Too many bachelorette parties, karaoke bars and strange bouncers trying to wave you into a bar
D. Not enough clothes on the girls inside those bars
At exactly midnight, in case you can’t make out the time on the clock.
Answer: F, all of the above.
7. Besides reaffirming a Coca-Cola addiction, the next best way to entertain yourself on a plane is to .
I actually kinda wish you all could fill that answer in!
Answer: Write a grocery list on the back of your boarding pass.
After that comes ‘Attempt to nap until you wake up because you’re drooling on yourself’ and ‘Try not to look crazy while attempting to itch one of the 20 mosquito bites you have on your legs.’ But those are just my answers.
8. The first thing I did when I got home was:
C. Go back to bed
D. Go spend way too much money on groceries at Whole Foods, and why not pick up lunch while you’re there too.
Answer: Laundry, hygiene and sleep can wait. It’s food I’m concerned with.
And now my breath smells like red onions, mmmm.
I better go tend to those unpacked groceries and clothes.
What’s the first thing you do when you get back from vacation?
