Vacation Boo Style~~

Boudreaux an' his lovely bride Marie talk about it bein' way too long since dey been on vacation, so Boo, him decide to take dem down to dat Cajun Riviera, Holly Beach, Louisiana.

Dere, da couple, dey have some great time! Dere hotel room got a great view, da weather's nice, and it's juss da relaxation da couple needs.

One day, Marie bury Boudreaux in da sand on dat beach. Den Boo, he bury Marie in da sand. It was too much fun, yeah!

A year later Boudreaux is drinkin' at the Prop Stop Bar & Bait Shop wit his bess friend Thibodaux. "Thib, mais I wish you coulda been at da beach wit me and Marie lass year!"

Thib say, "Mais Boo, dat woulda been some fun. I ain't had a vacation in I don't know how long. Maybe we can go dis summer, juss us two?"

Boo tinks and tinks, den orders two more beer. "Hey, Thib mon amie, why don't we do dat? Me and you, we'll go back to dat Holly Beach. While we dere, you can help me dig up Marie!"

Congrats on the award! Very well deserved.

Sandra Leigh said...

my brain hurts. I'm reading Patricia Cornwell's Isle of Dogs, struggling with the Tangier Island "backward speech" - and now this. Too much for my old head (but funny). How many dialects do you folks have down south?

Analisa said...

This was so funny and I read it outloud so I could practice my cajun accent. LOL

Marguerite said...

A good one about the Cajun Riviera! I do hope that your readers realize that the Boo-Thib jokes contain exaggerated dialect and that WE really don't talk "like dat", sha! lol Congrats on your latest award, and to all of the winners.
