Alright, Nick and I went to the state fair, again, today. It got off to a rocky start. As we were walking up to the bus it pulled away, only to find out that there wouldn’t be a bus for another half hour. If Nick would have just gotten off the couch as opposed to laying on the couch to make me angry, we wouldn’t have had to wait there in the blazing heat for the next bus. The bus which, if I may add, and I may because it’s my blog, showed up a couple minutes after it was supposed to depart. Irritating.
Of course Nick got an AAFLHD when we arrived. I had a bite, it was the best hot dog ever. Then I promptly got myself a Dippin’ Dots root beer float. I had a bite of Nick’s fried soft shell taco from El Sol in the corner of the food building. It was yummy. Next year we’re gonna split a burrito from there. We roamed around Machinery Hill, I stopped at the FM 107 booth for a little bit, but they were discussing SPAM and it got old real fast. Not to mention there was no shade or seats available. Then we had a steak sandwich from Butcher Boys (big red roof, right by the Grand Stand). Best steak sandwich ever. After that I got a corn on the cob and ate the kernels one row at a time with extreme precision. Unfortunately I couldn’t throw my cob in the compost bin, as by the time I was done we had wondered far from it.
We stopped by Tiny Tim for a bit to chat with Jordon. I asked for one mini donut, but he brought me one bag instead. I should have stopped eating at one. I really don’t like them all that much anyway, but it’s hard not to eat something when you’re the one holding the bag. After that I got me a Snickers bar, deep fried and stickified. We headed to the milk booth. Nick had chocolate, I had vanilla to wash down my Snickers. After that we left and Nick surpassed the AAFLHD on the way out for the first time. I think I’m all faired out for the year. Nick claims he’s going back again. It’s always sad to me when the state fair is over. I look forward to it for so long, then it’s done, and with its ending marks the end of summer. :(
Must have fair foods for next year:
- Corn cob
- Dippin’ Dots float
- Corn dog
- Steak sandwich
- Snickers w/milk
- Raspberry malt from the Dairy Barn
- Turkey To Go sandwich
- Pretzel the size of my head with cheese
- Fresh French Fries
- Sweet Martha’s cookies
- Burrito from El Sol
- Tiny Tim mini donut (1)
One more thing. You know those advertising signs on the inside of bathroom stalls? I was looking at one while using the facilities. There was a section that was open. Technically it wasn’t open, as it was advertising the rental of the sign. Anyway, the heading was for “Uninterrrupted Advertising” … I’ll let you figure out what is wrong with that.
