Happy Turning Tuesday!
And Happy Mardi Gras!
When I lived back in New Orleans, my family and I decided to take our annual vacation during Mardi Gras time. When you live in Nola, Mardi Gras tends to be more of a pain in the butt than a celebration over the years. With all the tourists and traffic and drunk people, you better hope you don’t live near a parade route…or else it would be difficult to be able to even leave your house!
There are some good things about it, though. The amount of creativity that is put into the parade floats is fun to admire. Also, all of the bigger parades have balls throughout the season where you get to dress up in ball gowns and tuxedos and enjoy a night of dancing and mingling.
And let’s not forget the sense of community one feels from the city itself! Sure, there are tons of tourists, but the locals enjoy Mardi Gras just as much. And it’s a time to celebrate and enjoy quality time with friends and loved ones.
Fortunately, Mardi Gras is also Turning Tuesday! So this week, I found a Pic of the Day that I thought would fit right in…
For those of you who don’t know, showing your boobs is a New Orleans staple this time of year. Show your boobs and you get some beads. I can’t tell you how many sets of boobs I have seen in my lifetime.
Not only is this Mardi Gras Zombie’s “turning” look pretty nice with the really good coloring of his skin, but he is being nice and giving people an option. It’s either brains or boobs. You choose.
