The State Fair of Texas





I went to the State Fair of Texas yesterday with my husband. Let me start off by saying my husband hates the State Fair of Texas, and I love it. I think it is a childhood memory thing. I drag him every year. The only downside is I am not allowed to ride the rides. My husband does not feel they are safe since they are put together in one day by toothless men drinking beer all day.

Anyhoo....

We went yesterday and we went taking the DART rail. Which was way too crowded, people baffle me trying to fit their asses onto an already crowded car. Honestly you see people standing in the stairwell, you are still trying to get on the damn thing? How inconsiderate or stupid can you be?

We finally make it to the fair and we walk around first stop is to the Fletchers Corny Dog stand, that is a right that everyone must partake in. Tasty, tasty!!! We also went to the car show, where I sat in my dream Lexus and Infiniti. My husband got scared as I kept walking by them and sitting in them, over and over and over again. I love my cars!!!!!!! We then saw these African men tumbling all over the place and jumping on each other. These brothers were buff.....they were all shirtless and everything, and they were doing all kinds of crazy stuff, making human pyramids, flipping on each other, and everything. Very energetic indeed. We mostly just walked around. We went to the fairway where the rides were at. Interesting....we have been going to the fair together for about seven years, and some of those rides are older than seven years, they still have a "Magnum P.I." themed ride, as well as a "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom" themed ride. Now both rides aren't licensed. One is called "Magnum", the other "Indiago". You know those rides are at least 20 years old. You also have the rides with the classy bikini clad girl draped across a Camaro, and other various trailer park themed rides. I wonder who does the ride art, and what white trash redneck background they come from to determine this art is "classy". We then partook in a fried snickers, I admit this is horrible, but that thing was delicious!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!We continued to walk around, saw birds of prey, and lots of different flowers.

I don't know why I love the fair, but I do......really someone needs to stop me.
