I can't believe these "
It normally takes me slightly less than 20 minutes from my door on the mainland to Paragraphs book store. Today it took me nearly an hour...you had to drive really slow because some crazy kid would dash out in front of you...people were gawking...dudes were posing...honking at girls...oh my!!! That was nothing compared to the trip home though...as described above.
I am officially old. Thank you very much. I even had my camera...but was afraid to drive and take photos for fear of crashing into the person in front of me...or being considered a pervert.
That said...only one girl appeared sloppy drunk as she nearly dashed into traffic and was restrained by her friends...mostly they all looked happy and, well, like Spring Breakers...and I only saw two ambulances...and about 25 police/constable/sheriff/DPS cars swarming the island and Port Isabel...and two wrecks...both totally avoidable. Whew...glad to be safely home. And to think...I have to go back there on Wednesday. Wonder if I'll see Snoop Dogg or his posse hanging out? Hell, probably not :-) I'm embarrassed to say I watched his reality t.v. show for awhile when I lived in Austin. I'd stop and couldn't look away...kind of like those wrecks I saw today. They are really setting up quite the stage for this event...whew...Spring Break at SPI...like everything in Texas...it's bigger and badder!
OK - that's my blog post for today. I'm in old lady culture shock. Sheesh, I'm not even that old...but that entire episode made me feel ancient.
Ciao for now!
