Like her mother years before, Carroll found out about her honor on a family trip to Perdido Bay, Ala. But first, Carroll had to get there.Gah!
“I woke up 15 minutes before my flight. So I called my mother, and she asked: ‘Are you at the gate?’ When I told her I had missed my flight, she started screaming so loud that my roommate asked if someone was dying.”
Carroll made the next flight, all the while wondering why her mother was so stressed. When she arrived in Alabama and got settled, her mother said, “We need to talk.”
“I’m thinking I’m in big trouble, but instead my mother hands me a photo of her as Queen of Carnival, but with a cutout of my head over hers,” Carroll said. “She then read a poem asking if I accepted. And of course I did!”
