WELCOME TO TEAPOT TUESDAY AND CHALLENGE #81
THEY'RE OUTA CONFETTI, JUST BRING SOME SPAGETTI!
Note: Anyone is welcome to play! Also, you do not have to write a story. You just have to be inspired by the teapot or by the story about this week's location! Have fun!
This is my story!
1. Well, one would think we would be headed to New Orleans because its the place to be right now with the Saints winning the Superbowl and Mardi Gras following shortly after. And what about Fat Tuesday? It's quite famous and definately has a reputation to live up to but it's not all that! Heck, we have Fat Tuesday every Tuesday at our teaparties even though we try so hard to cut down on our sweet treats, chocolate and sinfully delicious sideline events! What's a teaparty without eating some fun stuff??
2. We did such a good job getting Rapunzle's new business off and running that word spread to New Orleans. We're headed to the home of Martie McGraw! With a name like Martie McGraw (Martie is short for Martha) I am sure you won't be surprised to hear that she gets large multitudes of confused people showing up at her place every year ready to partake in this famous event! Is this Mardi Gras? It's not? Well, are we in New Orleans? We are? Well, how do you get to Bourbon Street?
3. Martie has flat had it with these annual disruptions in her life but really doesn't see an end to it unless she moves and changes her name! She's beginning to think this is an opportunity presenting itself year after year! Why not make a little money off other people's confusion, stupidity and lack of direction? How hard could it be to throw a little party, a wild and wacky parade, spread a little confettie around? Piece of cake!! (Yah, Kings Cake!) She can even get her cousin Quick Draw McGraw to activate the liquor license he purchased and never used back when he tried to open up the first Drink and Draw franchise that never materialized when he was advised that putting guns and liquor under the same roof might get him sued!
4. So here's the plan, Roxanne. Roxanne is the Merchandising Rep. that told Martie that due to the Superbowl win on top of the annual Mardi Gras celebration, there's no more merchandise to be had! All 42,000 tons of trinkets has been sold to those yahoos up on Bourbon Street. They are even out of confetti! Well, that's where we come in. We need to bring some purple, green, and gold color to Martie's place along with doubloons (medallions), beads (lots of them), masks (all kinds), feathers (tickley ones!) dragon/snake like parade suits (fire breathing) wacky/goofy party costumes (the sky's the limit), confetti (just bring some spagetti!), balloons (not the kind you ride in!), wigs (curly and colorful) and sparkley embellishments (don't bring your diamonds cuz they might get stolen!!) You know, the whole Mardi Gras thing! Oh! And don't forget the most important thing! King Cake! To go with our tea!
There's really nothing you can bring that will require you to come in the backdoor. Yah, its that kinda Teapot Tuesday!

Ever want to get a jump on next week's challenge card? I am posting a sneak peak (tea peek) on my blog
each week showing you a glimpse of the following week's teapot as well as a hint of the story! It's at the end of the Teapot Tuesday Post each week. I usually post it a couple days after the Tuesday Challenge is posted. So, be sneaky and get a jump on the other tea-potters! Snort!
