I know I've felt like that, and when I do, it's wonderful to know that New Orleans never changes (category 5 hurricanes, I'm talking to you!):
1. There will always be impromptu concerts, where you're sitting at dinner, contemplating the turtle soup on the menu(the answer is always "Yes," by the way), when in strolls 6 or 7 people who are solely there to do what they love...play music for perfect strangers.
2. Impromptu concerts will always make you grateful to be exactly where you are...something that doesn't happen enough, if you ask me.
3. True NOLA locals will always understand the significance of the "to-go cup."
4. There are few things in this world that have the restorative powers of an oyster/catfish/blackened shrimp/pork debris po'boy.
Don't you feel better already??
