Mardi Gras

Fat Tuesday will be here soon. Galveston has begun its Mardi Gras celebration. I had my annual deep-fried alligator on a stick the other day. It was good, but not as good as usual, because I was coming down with another cold. I feel like I have been sick pretty much all the time since Hurricane Ike left. Hopefully I am evolving into something wonderful by virtue of viral cellular changes.

But this morning, I had a nice big cocktail of antihistamines and cold medicines. At first it made me "drowsy" as they say on the labels. But now, I am dervishly whirling around singing, "And in the name of the Mardi Gras beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeads, we wish to welcome you to Munchkin land."

Just in case you were wondering.
