Have you ever been to Mardi Gras? Me personally? No, I have not, but I have always wanted to go. I want to see the festivities, the parades just do a YOLO moment.
Would I expose my breasts to get beads? Well, maybe. Course by the time I do go to Mardi Gras, I would be most likely retired, 65 years old and my breasts would be like balloons that have been inflated for a week and are hanging low. The floats might throw beads at me to keep my shirt on by then!
In all honesty, sometimes you do need to step outside the box. Do something you never thought you would do. Mardi Gras in a way is like that. You can go down to New Orleans and step outside of your comfort zone, just live in the moment.
It is Sunday Supper time. So as you may have guessed with the Mardi Gras talk, this week’s theme is MARDI GRAS! The host for this theme is Marion of Life Tastes Good.
