the beginning of the end


Good morning. It’s Thursday, the week before Labor Day weekend. If you have lived here for more than a year-ish, you likely know what that means…

it’s State Fair time.
(if you are nostaligic, and possibly a native, like me, you also know this means the end of summer is nigh.)

The fair has a great website, including downloads to every possible brochure you would ever dream to want.

I’m reminded of the state fair because:
a) Its the one time of the year I deign pronto pups slathered in a sheath of yellow mustard not only nutritionally sound but also the only way to say I’ve had a complete fair meal
b) I adore the all-you-can-drink milk stand.
c) the bus I took home yesterday had a State Fair advertisement on it. Which creeped me out — mostly because it said (and I’m paraphrasing here) “Come so often the goats recognize you.” With a goat looking mildly frightened, saying, “Bill?” It mostly made me think something inappropriate. Has anyone else seen this? I wish I’d have thought enough to snap a photo on my phone.

    I think I laughed for a good 5 minutes imagining that goat.

    I’ve seen the same sign, and yeah, it creeped me out for the same reasons alluded to above ; )

    I am avoiding the State Fair entirely. All those people (albeit the sort that generally make me feel better about myself). A whole day of eating crap food. Getting to and fro. I’m not big on the rides. Just, meh. I went a couple years ago so I could say I’ve been. That ought to hold me for a while.
