Fair Day. It’s a little sad, but some of us really do look forward to it all year long (okay, me). And it’s pretty predictable really – first a “hello” to Big Tex, a corny dog, beeline straight to the cheapest beer stand, a funnel cake, several deep-fried featured food items, the petting zoo, a chicken game and lastly the rides that only crazy people actually ride (yes, there are a few crazies among us).
But boy, do we love it and boy, is it fun. Goodbye, calorie counting, spinach salads and paleo diets. Hello, deep-fried goodness and an excuse to eat like there’s no tomorrow. It’s a great chance to let loose, leave the stress — and the deadlines — behind, if only for a few hours, and have some much-needed fun with our co-workers once a year (who BTW are actually a whole lot of fun when you get them out of the office), while enjoying a tradition as big as Texas. We only hope your fair day fared as well.
It’s hard to believe it’s already come and gone. The waiting begins...only 336 days to go.
