The day I found Whitney Houston in New Orleans

Whitney Houston

“Whitney Houston”


sc_logo_TEXTTomorrow is Mardi Gras in New Orleans. Look for my post on Tuesday about how to celebrate Mardi Gras without dealing with Boubon Street and Canal Street. In the meantime a little story.

The last time I was at Mardi Gras I was walking along Rampart Street and I saw this woman sitting on her stoop.

ME: I’d like to take your picture.

SHE: Why the hell you wanna do that?

ME: Because you look like Whitney Houston.

SHE: Ah hell, go ahead and take it.
