New Orleans Baby
The other morning, on the way to daycare, I popped in the Putamayo World Playground CD and scrolled through the tracks looking for something to wake Syd from her cranky stupor. I am not exaggerating in the least when I say the child went nuts when 'Mardi Gras Mambo' (Track 6) came on. The song starts with a blast of brass, which Sydney instantly recognized. She waved her arms in the air, kicked her legs against the car seat, and gave a single yelp of sheer delight. We sang and did the seatbelt boogie all the way to Oak Street.
Now that is a New Orleans lady.
