Things I Learned Today / Sunday, October 3, 2021

Things I learned today…

I think I saw the top 10 America’s Most Wanted at the fair today. Eeesh.

I actually marvel at how expensive it is to go to the fair, but you see EVERY walk of life there.

I’m so glad the fair has the same rides year after year. It’s tradition and nostalgia.

We watched a lawyer commercial a while ago, and the lady said they helped her get a bazillion dollars after she fell in the grocery store. Meanwhile, Keith had Edward Scissorhands botch his surgery causing irreparable damage, and all we got was…uh…er…ummm…jack squat. What a world we live in!

I like to watch Brady crochet.

Y’all, I saw more butt cheeks, nasty boobs, and over-taxed spandex at the fair than I’ve seen in 5 years. They should make a calendar: Butts, Boobs & Spandex of the Mid-South Fair 2021.

People who struggle with sensory overload and social limits leave the fair with their hair sticking up and a bit of a twitch. Trust is on that one. Lawd hammercy, it was fun, but it felt like we’d been in a blender.

Neither kid got sick, the frisbee catching dogs were cool, and we only spent $112 (4x admission, 2 armbands, and 2 slushes), so we came out good. Our attention spends weren’t long enough to watch the acrobat dude on the chairs stairs up to Jesus.

That’s all. We learn every day, don’t we?
