Ahhh…Fair Time

14 Aug

It’s that time of year again…the end of summer and the beginning of fair time!  I am sad that summer will soon be over and winter won’t be too far behind but between now and then I’ll enjoy the annual visit to the state fair.  It’s tradition.  If I don’t go, I feel like part of me is missing, even though it’s basically the same crap year after year.

The main reason for me to go?  The food of course!  Almost every food imaginable is on a stick.  Nearly all are fried.  For one day a year, this is not a problem but a celebration!  All calories consumed will contain little or no nutritional value and that’s awesome!  It’s even better when beer is combined with these cringe-worthy edibles!  Put on the elastic waistband shorts and oversized t-shirt and I’m ready for the gorge fest!

As I park myself on a bench moaning and groaning in pain from over-indulging, I enjoy another fair tradition:  the people watching.  There is nothing better than sitting back and watching the world go by…all shapes and sizes…all ranges of incomes…every wardrobe mishap and lost fad known to man…it rocks!

It’s fun to see during daylight hours but it’s downright entertaining to people watch at night.  By the time the sun sets, enough cheap beers have been consumed that all common sense goes out the window.  More skin and less fabric is the norm, mostly on people who should clearly not be wearing these outfits.  Remember the mullets?  If not, you will…they’re back and they’re fabulous.

I hope you all get a chance to enjoy your local fairs.  I’ll be consuming enough beer and grease to kill a small farm animal but I’ll love every minute of it (and the canister of antacids I’ll need to recover)!
