Did you miss the fair this year? Put yourself into a fair state of mind and then pretend along with us:
Pick a day that's supposed to pour rain, but doesn't. Make sure you are still geared for a 40 days and nights kind of storm.
Take three kids of your own and at least two others. It's best if none of them have napped for at least two days.
Try to relive glorious Krusty Pup memories from years past. Fail. Repeatedly.
Not realize there's a wine education pavilion until you're on your way out. Consider whether they have a kid-check kind of like a coat-check. Consider whether you could make money on the idea.
Gross out at least one person by revealing that a steak is actually from a cow. (Say it ain't so!)
Make veiled references to the FFA folks sleeping alongside their cows. Be careful, they have good hearing.
Purchase a limited number of ride tickets and then explain to the kids that they can't ride all the rides they want. This isn't Disneyland.
Fast for three days before so you can singlehandedly consume a block of curly fries. Wish you hadn't stopped fasting.
Wear the kids down so they are just one step above wild animals. Ask them to sit quietly in the car for the hour ride home.
Forget what this year was like so you go again next year.
