On the way out, they offer to stamp your skin for readmission. (It changes every day, so if you show up on Tuesday sporting Monday’s corn dog stamp, sorry Charlie.) The lady had the stamp out, but something in my staggering gait and drained face said no, I’m good, tank’s topped off. She didn’t offer to stamp.
I’d seen it all and done it all — well, almost everything. I heard someone say as I passed out the gate, “I want to check out that cheese on a stick.” It seemed like the most ordinary, banal thing the fair could offer, but I’d never checked out the cheese on a stick. One more thing to add to the list.
It runs 12 days. You might do it all if it ran for 40 — if you’re inclined to like the fair, that is. If not, today was a day like any other.
Hope you had a good time — and if you bought a bottle of water, hope it wasn’t more than a buck.
