Fun, Friends, and Fear

Jono was working out of town this week, but got in last night at around 11:15. It's so wonderful to have him home.

I was able to have lots of fun passing his time away with some friends, though. After hanging out and playing Canasta, Magen decided that she wanted to revisit some memories from her childhood via the carnival that was in town.

There were some memorable moments.

  • Booths that were manned by men who were arguably more annoying than car salesman.
  • Millions of cigarette butts.
  • A cotton candy vendor who used her bare hands to glean the candy from the machine (and wiped it off her arms into the bag).
  • Rides that may not have been maintenanced since the 80's.
  • A lady demonstrating how to carry your cigarette box around if you don't have pockets or sleeves. (Didn't you know? The bra is an excellent place for this!)

We didn't end up buying a single ticket for a ride, but we were much entertained. :)
