Sticks. And Fairs. And Free Biscuits.
Anybody else dread the State Fair? The crowds, the overpriced parking fees, the heat, the germs, etc? MP once dubbed it (correctly) “The Armpit of Mississippi” and that pretty much sums it up. HOWEVER, you cannot hate the fair IF your children have been before and look forward to it every year. (Thanks, Phil, for taking Bebe last year. I love how she asks about goin’ to the “Fater” EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.)
Actually, you CAN still hate it, but you cannot avoid it. I think that’s where I am. I don’t look forward to the crowds of people, but I’ll do just about anything to see my kids happy. Oh, and for free biscuits. True, I AM a little excited about the food. CP loves to eat. Simple as that. And errybody knows that the best foods in the world all come from the fair and are served on sticks.
Think about it, corndogs, chicken, popsicles, beef kabobs, candy apples, etc. I even had a fried Twinkie one year ON A STICK. Ok, admittedly it was pretty disgusting, but I had a theme going. Oh, wait- how do you eat sushi WITH A STICK. And how do you toast marshmallows? IMPALED ON A STICK. Game. Set. Match.
Now I feel like camping. Because I sort of inadvertently implied s’mores. Also? Maybe I should have eaten breakfast.
