We went to the fair! Emily, Amanda, and I loaded up late in the afternoon and hopped over to Fair Park for fried treats and, of course, a spin on the ferris wheel. I think we spent the ideal amount of time there. We’re all still pretty wrecked from the weekend, so we had just enough energy to wander around, scope things out, down some fried Pretzel Crusted Pollo Queso and a couple funnel cake beers, and bounce. That’s exactly what we did, and it was magnificent. Amanda had told us she had a friend working at the fair, and, shockingly, there he was, working at the very first booth we walked up to! He was a sweetheart and gave us more fried food than we needed. Or anyone needs. Ever.
Once we’d had our fill and our feet were starting to turn on us, we made a quick ice cream stop and drove home for some dairy and TV time. I’ve never been more proud to be an American.
