Everyone in Texas either
acts like JR Ewing or
Rides around in white robes and dunce caps. I have a Canadian cousin, who's wife is from Jamaica. When they have layovers at Intercontinental - she refuses to leave the airport and if possible insists the family stay behind security the whole time of their layover (sometimes over 24 hours). She honestly believes they will be lynched for being a mixed marriage if they step out of the airport. She continues to believe this even though her kids are good friends of sis and I and she knew Dad and trusted him with her kids for 30 years. Some of the kids in family hearing this insisted her marriage wasn't the mixed one, my parents' marriage was the mixed one (Protestant/Catholic instead of Irish/Jamaican)
Another time I got punched for burning boats. Apparently a 10 yo from Texas is personally responsible for idiot racists and their terror tactics. (I was playing with an assortment of different cousins of different races and religions at the time. They came to my defense which resulted in quite a dust up. None of us recognized the name of this group and had to ask our parents what it was when we arrived home after the fight.)
Ordered enchiladas got quesadillas at a "Mexican" restaurant on PEI. (younger cousins loved the place and insisted we go.
) I don't like quesadillas ate but choked them down after I'm from Texas and these are not enchiladas didn't work.
Heard the all Texas is scrubbrush and cacti thing. No there are lots of Trees in East/Gulf Coast. Lots of water too.
Galveston Island was abandoned after the 1900 storm and no one lives there.
