Maw Maw GamePosted: August 30, 2012
sorry, this one is more for the female readers. my maw-maw passed away last june. my maw-maw OWNED. she had so much spunk, and vitality and joie de vie that you couldn’t help but love the woman. she was 100% pure cajun, clan LeBlanc.
the fam is in for the storm in NO. me and paw-paw are pounding beers and watching “cajun justice”. he’ll usually chime in out of no where with little gems about my maw-maw. his latest-
“elaine asked momma how she could get involved with such a cad like me, she told her, “if i wanted vanilla, i’d have ordered vanilla.” lulz.
he told me the story of when her proposed to maw-maw at lee circle downtown. “i placed that tiny ring on her finger and asked, “will you marry me?” her response-
“why not?” this is CLASSIC maw-maw. you have to know this women to appreciate how laid back and nonchalant she was. RIP momma cat.
paw-paw had maw-maw on one of their early dates. paw-paw popped a piece of gum in his mouth, and maw-maw asked for a piece. she took the wrapper, crumbled it up and threw it at paw-paw. when he asked why she threw that at him she replied, “always throw your trash where your love lies.”
paw-paw had met maw-maw’s sister millie and when he finally met maw-maw he asked if she was millie (they looked VERY alike). maw-mawtold him, “no, but i’m next best thing…..millies little sister, the pick of the litter.” that’s some SERIOUS girl game. lol.
miss you Momma Cat. don’t worry, i’m taking care of paw-paw for you.
