Woke Up This Morning

That's the road that goes through New Orleans East to Slidell. One of those buildings is a Toys'R'Us. My mom was forced to hear us beg her to stop there every day, as we passed, so we could see the GI Joes. We didn't realize it at the time, but back then my mom had to work more than an hour to buy one GI Joe, yet we almost always had them for Christmas. We would stage assaults on the Christmas tree, my mom watching on and smiling from the couch, her gold tooth shining with the ornaments. Proud.

Listen with me:
