I just returned from vacation and was having my battery changed at the Musson Patout dealership when I came across The Independent (which I enjoy, especially “Snake Oil”). I have to admit to having the giggles after reading “You Know You’re from Lafayette If ... ” (July 9).
When you mentioned filling the bathtub with water for an approaching hurricane, you reminded me of an old memory. While riding out Hurricane Audrey at my grandparent’s home in Erath, my grandmother popped popcorn and made popcorn balls. Therefore, you know you’re from Lafayette if you know what popcorn balls are.
