There have been so many high points to Hurricane Isaac, where do I start? The best moment may have been when Romney came and asked our governor where all the water came from? The sky, the rivers, or the ocean. Really people? Or maybe it was when Jindal got upset that Obama wasn’t giving the state enough government assistance? Yes, the man who thinks the government should never give assistance said that. No, none of those quite make my top number one spot. It had to have been a conversation with my good friend F over text.
The following is a friend of mine F recalling over text a conversation we had 3 years ago when I was pregnant with my daughter. It took place at a king cake party. [For those of you not from Louisiana, that is when you get a king cake from each of the bakeries claiming to make the best and everyone eats them all. Pretty wicked party] Names have not been included to protect the awesomeness of my friend’s private lives. They are wild people.
Scene: Nevercontrary (NC) is sipping a non alcoholic beverage in the dining room F notices the panel of stretchy fabric atop NC’s jeans. NC starts talking about “the baby” to someone (probably H or T).
F is confused and turned to M and says ” Is NC pregnant?”
F: Did she start dating boys?
F: Where did the baby come from?
M: I don’t know (sarcastically) why don’t you ask her.
F: Hey NC, are you pregnant?
NC: Yeah, Laura didn’t tell you?
M: NO F! DON’T
F: Did you start dating boys?
NC: (clearly annoyed) No.
L: F! M says you need to come in the kitchen right now!!!!
F: So where did the baby come from?
NC: FROM GOD!!! ( gives intense bitch face)
F: Well Duh!
Obviously the best thing to do during a hurricane is to remember hilarious times with friends.
*Side note, it turned out to be a hurricane and not a zombie attack. Yes, I was disappointed too*
