I found a drink named the Hurricane that tasted like fruit-flavored Kool-Aid on steroids. It was tangy and delicious and made me feel very warm and tingly inside. Some of the humans said the drink was "too strong" for them, but I told them gnomes had a very high metabolism and we didn't notice things such as that. Silly humans. I was able to drink the drink straight down, and insisted on ordering another one.
A little bit after drinking the two Hurricanes, I began to get really warm and talkative. Everything that was being said seemed so funny to me! I made several friends at the restaurant we were hanging out in at the time.
It is a little known fact that gnomes are very musical. Many times when you think you hear the wind whistling in your yard or garden, it is very likely a gnome. I am not bragging, but I was named the most musical gnome at the 2009 Roots That Look Like Elvis Convention held at Natural Bridge, Kentucky. So, naturally, when I saw the band beginning to warm up, I introduced myself as 'Tuck, a gnome from Kentucky, and asked if they minded if I sat in for a song. The lead singer was bit of diva, I suspect he could already spot my talent and was intimidated by me, but he reluctantly agreed after I led the crowd in a rousing C-A-T-S cheer.
He agreed let me sing one song, so I gave it my all and belted out Elvis Presley's "Kentucky Rain." A gnome always tells the truth, so believe me when I say I was a big hit!

I even tried on a few hairpieces in a wig store. My Uncle 'Tan, from Montana wears sometimes when he attends the Summer Solstice celebration, but I decided it wasn't the look I was going for here in New Orleans.
Finally night fell on Bourbon Street, and according to Keith and Andy, it was party time. I was a little worried about my finances because I had not intended on buying that big sculpture that is pictured above, so I called my cousin, 'Tick, and asked him to wire some money into my account.
