It is about to snow today...and I am reminded about a time it snowed in New Orleans.
Christmas Day, and the snow begins to fall in New Orleans...for the first time in 25 years. I am standing on the street corner as the snow is falling, waiting for the man. I need to get enough dope to outlast this snow storm. It is freezing. I stick my toungue out to catch the snowflakes. No one can drive in this Louisana snow. The man says he is coming.
I wait and wait. Finally, as the flakes begin to subside, the man pulls around the corner. "Here is 200 bucks, give me as much as you can." I am now ready to weather this winter storm...with 15 bags in my pocket.
