You can take the beaner out of the barrio, but you can't take the barrio out of the beaner.

9/25/2005 - Night of Rita Touchdown

Me: "...they opened up the church near my house as a shelter for all the stranded motorists on I-45. I spent all day today baking food for them. I might head over there tomorrow to see if they need any more help."

Guy #6: "Yeah, I spent all day yesterday handing out water and snacks to the stranded motorists on I-45."

Me: "Really? That's cool."

Guy #6: "Yeah, now we've both done our good deeds for the year. So what are you doing tomorrow?"

Me: "I don't know...I think I might take a page from the Hurricane Katrina survivors and start looting. Mama wants a new plasma TV. You in?"

Guy #6: "Just tell me when and where."

David: Diva slut cat is purring away in her little bed at home. She never left my side during our "evacuation."

And you're right...not a very PC post. But if anyone complains about it, I'll just cut them. ;-)

LMFAO!

I was wondering about the 'beaner' reference until the end. Too funny!

Glad you're home and unpacking!

If white people "find things" and black people "loot," then what do beaners do?

You are a fucking freak.
I love it.
That sounds like a conversation my husband and I have..on a daily basis except it usually has to do with balls, boobs, poop, etc.

I didn't know you were a beaner too! On our drive back to Houston, we all decided what we would loot if the opportunity presented itself. I would take a Target shopping cart and loot that Blockbuster of it's New Releases, my kid would loot the Best Buy and my boyfriend said he'd loot the comic book shop.

That's what I call balance. ;)

Guy #6 sounds like a great partner in crime.

My oldest daughter asked me what looting was. I explained it and she said, "that's pretty smart." Hopefully I don't have a criminal on my hands; but if so, then hell, maybe I'll get a Plasma tv too.

We dodged the bullet, that's fo sure, girl! I'm glad you are okay and guy #6. Maybe you could open up your heart just an itty bitty bit??? He sounds like a keeper.
