Let me tell you a little bit about our trailer park. First off, the address is spray painted on the wall to indicate where to turn into the actual park. I wish I had the opportunity to take a picture of it because it is pretty funny. We had a very interesting neighbor. He was an older guy, who was pretty racist, and only came home during weird hours of the day.
One morning, we were sleeping, and we woke up to this gentleman talking to his friend. He told this friend that we were louder than Amos and Andy. Now, could someone please tell me. Who are Amos and Andy? Are they particularly loud indviduals? Why would he compare us to them? I wouldn't consider myself a loud individual, and I am pretty sure we weren't screaming in there. Anyway, from then on, I tried to whisper as much as I could so not to bother the 'Amos and Andy guy'.
Let me tell you about the trailer itself. The very first day we get into the park and get everything hooked up something happened, and the light fixtures shorted out in half of the house. To this day, we still can't figure out what the heck happened. I didn't realize how dark it actually got in there at night! The shower was a delight! In order for one to take a 'shower', I use this term loosely because this type of shower came from hose water, and lasted about 5 minutes. You had to go outside, and heat up this coil thing that was used to heat the water. It was broken or something, so we had to do it everytime. It took about 30 minutes to heat up the water, too. Since this was such a pain, I resorted to taking showers in the university gym showers, and T decided to either take a cold shower, or refrain from bathing all together. Sometimes, the water would be shut off completely! Those were the times I would go crazy. I'm sorry, but I draw the line somewhere.
Thankfully, it wasn't a very hot spring because the air conditioning didn't work. Near the end of our stay, I just about died because it felt like I was being cooked in an oven that actually looked like an oven! Near the end, we could both tell that we were becoming a 'trailer park' couple because we would see a trailer or a mobile home, evaluate it, and discuss the merits of them. I personally really like the mobile homes with a sliding glass door.
