I walked past Faulkner’s house last night while drunk on the way back to my hotel. Had no idea until I happened to see the plaque today. What I love about New Orleans is that the city keeps so much to itself. There are rooms within rooms within rooms of history and you could walk right past it.
- So, kids in Memphis, unsatisfied with the grammatical uses of the word “too,” have taken to saying things like “I’m three hungry” or “That’s three much.” Y’all.
