An Af-Fair to Remember
Okay, that was uncalled for...sorry. But guess what I did yesterday? Right! I went to the L.A. County Fair with Girlie Girl, Handsome Lad, plus Kick Back Dude and his family. In some ways, I really enjoy the County Fair. I like the animals and a lot of the exhibits of people's collections and prize winning recipes and things like that. I also like people watching and there is certainly an interesting cross section of humanity at (I am guessing) any county fair. I have never seen so many big, jiggly bellies proudly displayed in very short tight shirts than I did at the Fair! Not that I am into that or anything...just saying... Plus, there are these total gang bangers walking around completely in awe of "The World's Largest Steer." It is kind of cute. Now, I am not as crazy about the amusement park area. For one thing, I could live the rest of my life without ever going on another ride that makes me feel like vomiting or passing out :-) Yes, I know it is hard to believe, but I am no dare devil. So, there is that...plus, damn, the rides are expensive! Like, you feel pretty good purchasing a card of 40 tickets for $20 until you find out that will get you on about 4 or 5 rides. Now, this whole blog entry has only served to make me look like a very cheap, dull, and possibly very weird person, correct? I don't think that is quite right! I mean, we did have a good time. Everyone (except me and Love Bug) got on a few rides, we enjoyed the sights, and we didn't end up eating any food on a stick. Not exactly a road trip, but it was definitely a break from the regular routine.
