Just a funny story....
« on: 22/12/2006 05:57:21 »
New Orleans lost its flavor when I visited there a while back.  I just hope I do it justice with blogging on it.  I only spent one night there and it was just a shock.  It is the "new kid era"  Cheri, Jerry, Staisha, Deleon, Fran, Robert, Magnum, and I went just to support Deleon's game in the Superdome. 

I have known Cheri since Magnum and Staisha were just mere tots and she used to be my partying buddy...now our lives are changed, whew, Thank God!

Jerry she met after going back to Washington and they have been married for 12 years...Jerry and I play dominoes and of course, I beat him....hey, I am a numbers person...hehe  Jerry kept teasing me all through the trip about Robert at every pit stop and I had to keep reminding him he is my friend/brother.  Jerry then made a comment how much we look alike...I told him, "see, he is my brother!"  LOL

Fran, is Cheri's sister and has an issue with men period...LOL  Everytime we stopped as they all the guys seemed to suffer from MB(mouse bladders) on this trip.  First, Jerry, then Robert, next Magnum, and so on and so on...LOL  When we stopped, I would hear Fran say, OMG, another stop!  LOL 

Staisha and Deleon are Cheri's children, but Jerry has stepped up to the plate to raise these kids since they were tots!  He is an amazing man as he claims them to be his own.  I love to watch him as he talks to them.  They have such a bond! 

Robert, is a good friend.  He is my friend and we have known each other for almost 2 years...this past year he has taken an interest in making sure I don't take too many trips without him...hehe  He is scared he might miss out on an adventure...We are going to Europe together with his mom...and they both amuse me when they are together...so I am sure I will capture enough human behaviour footage on those two alone...:-)

Magnum, is my baby son, he is one of my children and he loves to travel too.  He stated he  didn't want to ride in the car with me from Shreveport to New Orleans as he knows I would have to sing, say something corny every now and then....(duh, like Jerry didn't ;-) I think it was because he didn't want to share his mom with anyone else and Robert happened to go with me. 

We took two cars and one car filled with the smokers and Robert and I took a separate car...We sang, yakked, and told corny jokes...yeah, Magnum you missed it baby!  Psst, so did you Staisha!  LOL 

Well, Deleon won his game at the Superdome and the night before we went on Bourbon street to listen to some Jazz, but New Orleans flavor has changed to a newer and different sound...the sound of "new kid era" The Jazz was cheesy, the rap was zippppppppp...or rather the kids seemed to enjoy it...We had beads thrown at us and it didn't cost us to raise our tops for them...I did tease Robert and told him to raise his...but he said it was cold...Everyone complained of the cold, but to me it was not that bad. 

We did arrive back to Shreveport the next night and I was a bit tired after the 8hr drive the day before and the 51/2hr one on the way back.  I get a bit grumpy when I am tired.  Cheri had her clumpy heels on clunking on the hardwood floors...my nerves was grating at this point...then my lovely son,

Magnum is yakking on his phone....honestly it is now 1:15am...I tell him to use his inside voice and he keeps a yakking but I was too tired to grab phone, so instead...I grab a pillow from the couch(I was sleeping on the couch)and hit him with it. 

Then Ms. Staisha comes in...yakking too...trying to find CD's ....these two were fast asleep on the road...I asked her if she was going back out and she states she was.  I was trying to mentally prepare for the next 10 mins I am asleep...

Then Jerry starts playing some old records...(Johnny Cash)...good grief, it is too early in the morning for this...aagghh!  I grit my teeth and ask everyone to please go to bed...geez...give a sista a break here!  LOL  Magnum laughs at me as I must've looked crazy...he leaves. 

Then the voice of the Robert creature has to emerge from his room...honestly, is this ever going to end(I was thinking this in my mind)He says, "Loretta?" not sure if he is walking on egg shells...I give up at this point as I was tempted to ignore him...but felt like I would've been in trouble with my dad if I had!  I answer as nice as I could(probably sarcastically?) "Yes?"  He then proceeds to tell me that Bo(the Labrador) is trying to make out with him...I started laughing hysterically...I get up off the couch as I thought he might need assistance(the sissy)to get the big, black hairy dog off of him...and I am so weak from laughing at this visual of Robert trying to kick the dog in the "nuggets"(this is what Robert called them)and can't move as he is trapped under a blanket...so, of course, Robert told me this to get me to laugh as he calls them "loretta moments" He did mention he had laughed at me telling everyone to go to bed as I have my, "grumpy, I am sleepy moments" hehe The dog had since left before I could help my friend....LOL  But he seemed to have survive the incident...it did take me a while to go back to sleep...but it was worth the laugh!

I did stay home, but met up with them the next morning for breakfast...Robert joined us for breakfast...showed him my blackmail pics of him...LOL  with the angel one it had blonde hair and he was glad that it was blonde like his...LOL  I did show my family the pics...sis was quiet and I asked her why she was so quiet...then the one thing she says is..."when are you and Robert getting married?" I looked at her not missing a beat and said next weekend, do you want to be the flowergirl?  LOL  She did not say another blasted word...I will pay her back one day...hehe  when she is least expecting it though with thoughtful words of encouragement when she gets a beau in her life, such as...so Ida you were telling me that ---- and you were getting married next year...so what are you guys plan...LOL

Yes...sometimes it is tough and I will use email delay if possible..but when it is a call on the phone...I spring into action...I hate it at times...but if they will just give me a demotion...I wonder who could do it...scared thinking about it with a hand over my eyes peaking through...
