The good, the bad, and the fair

Best parts of the fair:
  • Tiny nursing, sweet, playful piglets.
  • Cowboys
  • The model railroad system.
  • Letting Gabey play on the tractors.
  • The tractor parade.
  • Peanut butter fudge.
  • When Simon was recruited to participate in the 4-H peewee sheep showmanship competition so they would have enough kids. He got third place. The two kids who were actually entered to compete got first and second.
  • Cinnamon rolls.
  • Gabriel's pony ride lasting almost 15 minutes because they wanted kids on the ponies when other kids walked past.
Worst parts of the fair:
  • Getting trapped in the pig run with a bunch of pigs on the loose, being chased with boards and sticks.
  • Losing Daniel.
  • Losing my mom when she was communing with the goats (it happens every year).
  • Looking a pig in its very human eyes (it makes you not want to eat bacon in a way that looking at a cow will NEVER make you give up steak).
  • Losing my car.
  • The droning sound of that hypnotist that's at the fair EVERY YEAR. What's his name? Michael Mesmer or something. I can't stand that guy.
  • The total absence of good-looking men. I'm not that picky these days boys. Get with the program.
