When In Mississippi…

When in Mississippi you must, eat BBQ at the gas station because after all, thats where the locals hide the good stuff.  And when you’re at the BBQ gas station eatery, you must try the ribs, the potato log, fried corn concoction, chicken wings and boiled peanuts.
When in Mississippi, you must visit Sonic at least once a day, if not more.  You must indulge in Sonic Happy Hour and eat “vacation food” (ie food only acceptable when calories don’t count…oh if only they really didn’t count). And then when you get a little tired of Sonic you should venture out to Arby’s and remember just how much you love those delicious curly fries.  And then try Canes, and discover that Chick-Fil-A isn’t the only chicken place in town.
When in Mississippi, you must enjoy the coast in all its splendor, jellyfish included.  You’ll find that not many wanted to brave the beach on a cloudy day so you’ll have it all to yourself.  You’ll slash in the chilly water and dig your feet into the white sand and enjoy.
When in Mississippi, don’t dismiss the quality of its Thai food, you will be presently surprised at its taste, even if your waiter is lacking in his southern hospitality.
When in Mississippi use cation before assuming your neighbors yard is on fire and hurriedly calling 911.  After all, you might find out that although though it fact it does appear that the whole yard is one fire, the owner has it all under control and he is just trying to get rid of pine needles.
When in Mississippi drive over to Slidell, LA and worked the morning at the canery.  It will be entertaining! And you’ll get blessings in heaven.
When in Mississippi, find a fire breathing man.
When in Mississippi, sit around the fire pit and roast marshmallows until you can roast no more, and then do the same thing the next night. 
When in Mississippi go the the Watermelon Patch and pick up a Southern Belle Shirt and then you will look like on of the locals, silly as they may be.
When in Mississippi, go visit Connie’s Cones and order the Strawberry Daiquiri with sweet and condensed milk on top…delicious!
When in Mississippi, find the cutest and coolest family and spend the week with them!
