Riding dirty – Chamillionaire

Granny and Sphynxie….badass bikers on a road trip ❤

So my Dad, Bless his Soul, was kinda notorious in his circles.  Perhaps a bit shady.  He would take my brother and me to allll the Saints and Tulane games when we were kids.  We didn’t really want to go, but there were nacho’s involved…so ya know.  Then when my kids were old enough he would bring them.  Just for fun (and nacho’s) I went along as an adult and was stupefied at what I witnessed.  My dad would stand outside of the dome holding 3 or 4 fingers up….kids close by.  I remember seeing him do this as a kid.  People would pass by and give him a ticket or two that they had extra or whatever.  Did he stop once he got the right number of tickets for kids? No he did not.  He’d pocket them and keep putting his fingers up till he had 3 or 4 extra tickets…..then he’d wait a beat and hold a couple of the tickets up AND SELL THEM.  Beer and nacho money he says…ya know how much that shit is in there!?!?  I think I may have done the sign of the cross and muttered Holy Mother of God under my breath…then prayed he didn’t get arrested.  I came to wonder if he walked around with a rabbit’s foot or something up his ass cause as far as I know, my Mom never got that call.  He and his old guy buddies from the Irish Channel would go to the same bar 2 or 3 times a week after they all retired.  It’s in the Quarter (or was) and was open on 3 sides…so people watching was like an Olympic sport.  My Dad would park his car right in front of the bar in a no parking zone.  When the meter maid would go up to it he’d greet her from his stool in the bar and ask her how her momma was.  They’d swap pleasantries and she’d move on…probably thinking “what a nice old man”.  I’d fuss at him and he’d say “Nobody wants to give a nice old man a ticket”…. talk about balls. ❤

Anyway, that’s what I thought of when I saw the WIP for Culprit’s Scooter…that and the Riding Dirty song (and actually, the song was because Yoshi posted the WIP with the title “They see me rollin”).  Cause ya know….do they REALLY wanna arrest a nice old lady and her kitty (she probably has some hard candy in her purse to share)? ❤
