Boudreaux & Thibodaux - Cajun Prenup

Thank my daddy for sending this one!~~~


Boudreaux done got old and his children done parked him at one'a dem old folks' homes near Breaux Bridge. At Shady Acres, Boo meets him a lovely lady from Texas, and bein' a fine upstanding Catlick, him didn't wanna do nuttin' against his religion. Derefore (Therefore), ol' Mr. Boudreaux axed (asked) for her hand trew (through) a proper marriage proposal.

Now, Boudreaux and Mabel were in dere (their) 80s. Mabel tells everyone at Shady Acres the good news. Miss Claudine, Mabel's best friend, tells Mabel since she's so wealthy, and da person she was about to jump da broom wit (Cajun wedding tradition) isn't worth a plug nickel, she should git (get) her a prenuptial agreement, yeah.

Mabel's swingin' on da porch swing wit Boo, and she tells him she'll jump da broom wit him if he'll sign a prenup. 

Boudreaux, him say to his lady love and betrothed, "I don' know what dat is, but I'll sign anyting you want, 'cause I love you dat much and more!"

Mabel, gets out her pen and paper to get started. She reads out to Boudreaux, "I want to keep my house down in Texas with all the oil wells."

Boo says, "Dat's fine wit me. I'll keep my shack on da bayou."

"I want to keep my Cadillac, BMW and Lexus." Mabel holds Boo's hand in case he's getting worried or put off.

Boo smiles, squeezes her hand and says, "Dat's fine wit me. I'll keep my pick-em-up truck."

"I want to keep my yacht that's moored near my summer home in Padre Island..."

"Okay, dat's fine wit me. I got my pirough."

"Okay, Mr. Boo, I want to keep all my jewelry too."

"Dat's fine wit me. I'll keep my stuffed deer head."

"Thank you, honey. Now, one more thing; I wanna have sex six times a week!"

"Hey, Mabel, dat's fine wit me too, yeah! Put me down for Fridays, sha (cher)."

Roni @ FictionGroupie said...

lol, this makes me think of my great grandmother. She liked one of the old men at her home, so she kept stealing his leather jacket and strutting around with it over her housedress to get his attention. And she was pure Cajun, sha, so the conversation probably didn't sound much different from this. :)

And is the pronunciation of asked not "axed"? Dammit.

Karen said...

That was funny and almost real. I worked in a couple of nursing homes. Some of'em are real characters! Great smile for today.

Angie Ledbetter said...

TTWC - Yeah, a double dose since it comes from both sides.

Oh, you had a canaille grandma, huh Roni? Good for you, and good for her sneaking dat jacket for some male attention! :) And to da question you axed, dat's how it's said down here! :)

Thanks Karen. Bet you never got bored working with the seniors.

Oh My Goddess said...

I want her to mentor me.

She obviously has gotten everything figured out!

Angie Ledbetter said...

OMG - For reals, hunh? :)

Too funny. That makes me think of another Shady Acres type stories. I'll paste it in here from you.

One evening, a family brings their frail, elderly mother to a nursing home and leaves her, hoping she will be well cared for. The next morning, the nurses bathe her, feed her a tasty breakfast, and set her in a chair at a window overlooking a lovely flower garden.

She seems O.K. but after a while she slowly starts to lean over sideways in her chair. Two attentive nurses immediately rush up to catch her and straighten her up.

Again, she seems O.K. but after a while she starts to tilt to the other side. The nurses rush back and once more bring her back upright. This goes on all morning.

Later, the family arrives to see how the old woman is adjusting to her new home. “So Ma, how is it here? Are they treating you all right?” they ask.

“It’s pretty nice,” she replies. “Except they won’t let you fart.”
