Mardi Gras and my Fiance'

First off, let me say that I am "sorry" for not posting a lot lately. I have been busy and sick and well, these are just excuses. Sorry. I will try to post more often. One reason I do not post a lot is because I am not really a good poster. IO don't know how to do the thing where some phrases are highlighted and are links. That is so COOL! I also have no idea how to post pictures. I need to get someone to so me these things......anyway, here is a topic for discussion.

Mardi Gras. Have you ever been? I have. Nine years ago. I was a kid. 19 at the time. I had heard all of the stories. Here is mine.

I drove down on a thursday afternoon, (5ish I think) with a fraternity brother of mine. He was from the great city of New Orleans. he was going to take me to my first Mardi Gras and show me the ropes. I was so damn excited. We drove non-stop for 14 hours. 1000 miles basicly. With his puppy in the back seat. Which meant that we had to stop every 2 hours to walk the dog. Anyway, it was a ton of fun. I never knew that there were so many parades. That is a bigger event than Burbon St. Basicly the whole town shuts down for a month. Here are a few things that happened to me when I was there. I had a girl piss on my foot within the first 5 minutes of being on Burbon St. I saw more boobies that I needed to. Really. After 2 days I was tired of seeing boobs. I never thought that would happen. I made out with many drunk ladies. I also had 2 girls write there name on my balls (yes, my balls) with a felt tip marker. I also saw girls getting grabbed and molested. Not cool at all. Anyway, here is my issue.

This friday me and my finace' are going to New Orleans for a wedding. She is in it. This weekend is the biggest weekend before Mardi Gras. Should I lay some ground rules? I would rather her not flash everyone (I don't think she will but should I ask anyway?). Am I out of place to ask this? I am pretty sure we will be too busy to go to Burbon St. But I am just trying to cover all my bases. What do you guys and girls think?

I also need to read my posts and correct any mistakes before I post it. Damn I am an idiot!!!

I recommend not putting the ball thing in writing where your fiancé can read it.

As for the other worry, you've been to weddings. When the hell do you think you'll be able to get away for anything, other than as a gopher?

I've never been to Mardi Gras, but I don't think it would be inappropriate to tell your fiance not to take her top off for other dudes.

I would just slide it into casual conversation. Something like, "Wow, this is the area that was just devastated by Hurricane Katrina. Just devastated. Hey, speaking of devastated, I would be devastated if you took your top off for other dudes while we're here. Hey look! That's wthe house where Brian Williams and NBC News did their week-long coverage last week! Sweet! Are you hungry? Let's go grab a burger or something."

I went to Mardi Gras when I was in high school, and it involved most known drugs.

Tell her you get a free stranger breast grope coupon for every time her boobs are flashed. That might even turn out to be a competition you would very much enjoy.
