Have you been to the Fair?
Oh, darling, you simply must. Whole Quonset huts full of enormous pigs, walls of cows, silly chickens, aggressive ducks and bleating sheep! Carnival rides! Families tied together with rope! Food on a stick!
Did you hear me? Food on a stick!
Yeah. We get pretty excited about that.
One of my favorite aspects of the Fair is the Sheep Barn.
You walk in, and there is that moment of silence, if you are lucky, and then the cacophony of hundreds of sheep bleating, hundreds of sheep sounding suspiciously like hundreds of people imitating hundreds of sheep.
Would you believe I look forward to that every year?
I gotta get out more.
So anyway, this is the plan Saturday:
- Drive to mall
- Free bus ride to the Fair from the mall
- Eat food on stick
- Avoid being run over by hotshots in motorized wheelchairs
- Eat more food on a stick
- Walk through the merchandise buildings (avoiding the sheets/nylon parachutes from last year – a $20 lesson regarding buying “400-Count Egyptian Cotton” in a building surrounded by cowboys and the All-You-Can-Drink-For-a-Quarter Milk Stand)
- Possibly swap out more food on a stick with a greasy bag of hot, miniature, sugared donuts
- Go home.
It's a full life.
Really. I’m like a rich person over here.
