Ajoleblon...A Cajun Tale

This journal is a bunch of rants about nothing. Mostly lighthearted happenings in the life of a woman who is very simple and who wants for nothing but greatly appreciates whatever is given. You will find nothing profound here but hopefully something that will make you laugh and that's what I enjoy doing most. Being humorous. Fight all error, but do it with good humor, patience, kindness, and love. Harshness will damage your own soul and spoil the best cause.

She never ceases to amaze me!

Loopy actually describes my daughter.  I have another good one to tell you guys.  She never and I mean never ceases to amaze me.  Here's the conversation we had when I asked her directions to her house:

Me:  I know how to get to Laplace just give me the directions after I take the exit.

Her:  Take a left on "x" street go to the end and take a right on "x" street.  Then count 10 to 15 and we are to the right.

Me:  10 to 15 what... houses?

Her:  No, 10 to 15 seconds...then we are to the right.

Me:  (laughing hysterically) Well in all my years Brandi I have never had anyone tell me to count seconds in giving me directions. 

Just suppose I count faster than others?  Oops wrong house! LOL

I'm off to LaPlace then New Orleans tonight.  Wish me luck...how many seconds do you think I have to count from Lafayette to LaPlace?

7200 seconds if you dont drive too slow or count too fast.  LOL.  Hope you have a good time in New Orleans.  You surprised with the email.  I had an ex once that gave directions by the color of houses.  They painted a house one time and she herself got lost.    john
