Mardi Gras

Laissez les bon temps rouler!

I’ve never been to New Orleans — other than driving through it in the middle of the night on my move from New Mexico to Florida in 2001 — and I’m not a real party animal; I quit drinking in 1992, and I’m not religious in the sense that the beginning of Lent means anything to me. But boy do I love King cake. Any excuse to get sugared up works for me.
