Marie Paints the Kitchen-It was a typical
South Louisiana July afternoon. A hundred degrees, and a hundred percent humidity.
Hot and wet. Boudreaux comes home from working at the crawfish farm to find Marie
wearing not some old comfortable clothes, but two heavy jackets. (In July, yet)
Boudreaux asks Marie why she was dressed that way on what surely had to be one
of the hottest days of the year. Marie tells him, “Mais Boudreaux, look
on de can of paint. It say, ‘For best results, put on two coats.’
So dat’s what I did’!”
