Sweetie and Brother-in-Law, The Mouth, were arguing again, as usual. Those two could argue over anything, and probably have, i'm guessing it's a twin thing.
This time it was Brother-in-Law, The Mouth, arguing that the chunks of ice were too big for the glasses, which they were not.
An'way, it bring me to mind o' de time Boudreaux an' Clothile get to arguin', an' arguin', an' Clothile still be mad when she meet up wit' Marie at de grocer later.
She be tellin' Marie all about dat arguin', an' she look over at ol' Bergeron de grocer an' den she say, "Mais! I wish my Boudreaux be more like ol' Bergeron -- divorced!"
