The standers were so ridiculous that at one point they were on the yellow line in the middle of the road. Seriously. For what? Taffy? Because that's the main thing that people throw to the sidelines. Then the Taco Time float drove by and people went berserk because they were throwing those mardi gras necklaces in red, silver and blue. I can't imagine the stampede there would have been if something of actual value were thrown.
Also, a girl ran over to me from the middle of the street and dumped a small bucket of water on my head. I have no idea who she was. Must have been a dare. I laughed so hard I was crying. I felt like I was a very unlikely person to choose, a mom holding a small kid, didn't even think I'd be part of the water fight going on during the water parade. Now I know better: no one is exempt.
