Oh! Thou art so fair.

11 Aug

If ever there was a place to suspend judgement- dietary, culinary or fiscal, the  fair is it.

It’s not just the abundance of fried foods- from Oreos to PB&J sandwiches, it’s the fact that grown ups will pay $12 to enter the fair for the opportunity to eat fried Oreos and PB&J.

Did I type “and?”  I meant “or.”  That grown ups will pay $12 to eat deep-fried Oreos OR a deep-fried PB&J.  Certainly not both.  That would be unhealthy.

The fair is probably the one place where if my kid asks for something to eat, I just let him get it.  No argument.  This is the one time where I cannot counter with “I can make that for you at home, only better, for less” because I will not make a deep fried Oreo at home, my pizza will never turn out as soggy as the fair’s and a big cookie is just hard to resist.

Side note: favorite ride now and forever, the big slide.  Old school, low tech, competitive.  And a lower body workout- you must CLIMB the stairs to ride.

Additional side note: climbing the stairs to ride the slide does not burn off the calories associated with a deep-fried anything.

    I love fried Oreos, but the graviton ride (AKA hurl and whirl) is the best calorie reducing option. The giant slide is just plain dangerous.
