I went to get my haircut in Metairie when we first arrived at an old fashioned Barber Shop that has been staffed by the same three barbers since the last 60’s. Awesome.
When I first stopped in to get my haircut, I sat in the chair and told him the # for the electric shaver, and he said, without missing a beat: “So, which hotel y’all staying at while you’re in town?”
I was a Xenos, and he knew it.
When I told him I lived here, he said, “How long?”
Strangers in a foreign land, and glad of it…
