4.) The animals are too cute, and people always flock to the baby animals, making it virtually impossible for you to see them.
5.) Your friends will always want to sit and listen to a band play, no matter how awful or good they are, leaving you to wonder if you should hang around or try to make a mad dash to the bathroom.
6.) The food and drink are always going to be expensive, and you find yourself leaving the fair with about $1 and some change, thinking about things like " I could really use a drink right now, and if I hadn't of had that 4th corndog...I could buy one"
7.) The lines for food are going to be astronomical, especially around Saz's, the cream puff place, and the mini donut stand. (a personal fav)
8.) If you go and play bingo....a few things are going to undoubtably happen. 1.) Someone is going to yell bingo when they don't really have it 2.) Someone walking by will yell bingo just to mess with the crowd 3.) When somebody actually does get bingo, you will hear a loud groaning noise from all the other people around you....followed by a few choice swear words.
9.) You will consume 4 times the amount of calories as any one normal person should eat.
I had a great time at the fair this year. I went several times, and ate way too much food. Since the fair only comes once a year, I figured...hey, what the heck....I'm going to pig out. Well Friday night was the most disasterous evening I have ever had at the fair. My friends, and I, went crusining the fair after work. I thought it would be a good idea to eat anything that I could find that was made on a stick! Well, the plan started working out well until I realized that I was getting....well.....um....sick. I had eaten about 40 pounds of cheese in like 20 minutes....and my body just could not keep up. However, I persisted....like I said....it only comes once a year. What can I say...I had a goal....I had to sample every food that came on a stick. And here we go.....
But not everything that was sampled came on a stick. I endulged in way too much junk food, and even some food that should be healthy for you.....unless it is deep fried!!
Dippin Dots Ice Cream....I LOVE this stuff!!
I was puzzled by the illusive "bacon on a stick". I was told that it was being sold at the fair, but I could not find it anywhere. Is it a myth? All in all, it was another great year at the fair. I even got see some of my winning entries, and check out the last picture...I caught these two pups napping away in one of the booths.
On Friday night, my friends and I listened to this really good band calle "Rhythm Method". They sang virtually anything from oldies to Journey to Queen....they were really good!!!
I find myself today with the dreaded summer cold. So as much as I would like to keep on blogging about my adventures...I'm afraid I will be headed off to bed. Hope you all had a great weekend!!
