Vox Populi: Them Old Cotton Fields Back In Atlanta

The following is a text message from yesterday:


tmfw: Have y'all been getting all that rain out there in North Carolina?



Don: Not around here yet.



tmfw: It's been raining like crazy here. The cotton people say that the crops are dropping to the ground and mildewing.



Don: Well, when them cotton bolls get rotten you can't make very much cotton.



tmfw: This is based on personal experience right?



Don: Well, when I was just a little bitty baby my Mama would rock me in that cradle.



tmfw: I know for sure that you don't know the first damn thing about cotton farming. I know that you didn't spend your infancy in Louisiana. And for the record, there's no place in Louisiana that's just about a mile from Texarkana.

Don: I have to go now.

tmfw: Take an umbrella to work tomorrow.

Don: Bye

Not make, pick. You don't make cotton.

My texts are always better before you butcher them with your inept editing and post them without permission.
