A likely excuse indeed! (me)
Long ride short, we were in the car over an hour getting to the fair,which was about 10 miles away.
On a brighter note, the sky looked amazing as we drove:
I am slightly obsessed with the sky, so the picture on the left was actually taken in the parking lot of Lowe's the day before. The colors were gorgeous! BUT the one on the right was really the sky as we drove to the fair, it looked like a child fingerpainted it, beautiful.
After the hour long car ride, we were H.U.N.G.R.Y.
First stop? And this was quite immediate, FOOOD!
We went to the very first place we saw, which was a Greek place.
At this point, may I interrupt myself to bring you this very important message.
I have such trouble inserting and moving around pictures, it's ridiculous.
I may scream. The gyro picture? Went to the top of the blog, then the very bottom, then back to the top. Never quite landing where I wanted it to. Gah! Took me a good 10 minutes to place it properly!
That's all. Now back to your regularly scheduled blog.
...When all of a sudden a guy in a blue shirt walked by gnawing on a giant turkey leg.
TURKEY LEG! I exclaim, knowing my husband would need one immediately.
Let's go! He says, trying to follow the guy, who was walking fast and weaving in and out of the mass of humanity that lay in front of us. We lost him as soon as we saw him.
Finally, found the turkey legs! Barbaric aren't they? Not to mention, $10! For a turkey leg!
I mean, I guess if I had to lose a leg for fair folk to gnaw on barbaricly, they better be paying dearly for it. These things are massive, the poor turkeys..
And since hubs was indulging, and we only go to the fair like once every 7 years, I thought ME TOO!
I bypassed the marginally healthy (hello, apple?!) candied apples..
And headed straight for the elephant ears!
Hubs: Real turkey leg
Me: Fake elephant ear
Bring on the fried dough! I had the cinnamon sugar, and I ate about a quarter of this massive ear.
And oh, it was worth it.
Then we walked and walked and walked. Past all the gaming wizards, all shouting to us.
Hey! Hey you! Play this game! Win this Rasta Nana! Hey! Come here!
