Also, I was getting sick. So I slept away most of the day. Snuggled and wrapped in lots of blankets, I pounded water down myself and made sure I sweat a lot. My joints were starting ti get achy.
When I woke up around noon I was feeling a bit better so I hopped in the shower for the steam and knocked all the gunk in my nose out. Then, the only thing I was feeling was starvation. I hadn't eaten for quite some time and I was feeling it.
But, I waited. Food was important, but it was also important as to what kind of food. Upon internetting, I found that a place called "Luke" existed, only with some fancy shit over the U. I found they had what I sought, but at 3pm. So I waited.
I was there for what they had, but I needed to wait till 3, so I ordered that days special. Seafood gumbo as my side and a White Gulf Shrimp Cuccuza Stew with smoked Pork Jowls on Jasmine Rice... Majestic to say the least. The gumbo was meaty and a blast of flavor, and the stew was magnificent as well. When I was finished with my meal, it was almost time. I ordered a beer and waited.
|Oysters are so damn good!|
I did so by ordering a second dozen.
Twenty four oysters for $12 was something you can't pass up, and I would have ordered more had I had a "wooden leg" as people often ask. What a wonderful thing to eat. I'm glad I'm on this planet to do it.
After this, I came back to Faith's and took a power nap. Shortly after, we were off to "The Spotted Cat". A live jazz joint. It was so great to hear more Jazz music, and particularly funny to me as I realized... all the dancers from last Sunday were here. It was great to hear the Jazz, and Faith, Anderson (Faith's friend) and I listened on intently to the music.
Water water and more water, then off to bed. I suppose it's time I get to rambling on, but I'm going to miss this here silly town. Its been fun New Orleans, but if I stay any longer I might stay for good.
