Sweetie is thinking ahead. We are supposed to be going on vacation soon, and he's already planning when he will visit his hairdresser so as to be ready. He's one of those men who, if he gets up to use the restroom in the middle of the night, has to rebrush his hair before he can come back to bed.
Boudreaux din't have no hair to be vain wit', an' he really hate it dat his friends, dey pick on him 'bout it. He allus be tryin' to t'ink of a way to get dem back.
One time at de Hubba Hubba Lounge, Thibodeaux get him up to go to de bar fo' another drink, an' as he pass Boudreaux he rub his hand on Boudreaux's bald head. Den Thibodeaux say, "Dat be as smooth as my wife's bottom!"
