Savannah Georgia: Lessons Learned

I just got back from taking the better half to Savannah, Georgia for her birthday get away. While visiting Savannah we learned many things.

  1. Ghost tours are a costly way to hear ghost stories and in general are disappointing rip-offs. They are not staffed by benevolent Roto-Rooter men. Every spot in the entire town of Savannah is haunted so just buy a book or watch TAPS.
  2. Cobblestone streets will turn an ankle in a heartbeat.
  3. If you eat more than two pecan pralines you will instantly become diabetic.
  4. Never trust the valet at your hotel with the keys to your wife's prized automobile even if they only charge $12 bucks a day. "You #$%@ well better have our keys in that cabinet!"
  5. 100 degrees in Georgia is "dang hot!" It is however, a "wet heat."

And finally, a word to any budding entrepreneurs from the state of South Carolina. Ditch the fireworks stand and open a gas station restroom cleaning service. Apparently, they do not have any.
