A small group of us from work went to The South Carolina State Fair today at lunch. We spent most of our time at the petting zoo feeding goats, sheep and llamas. We had to shove a few children out of the way. But all in all a good time was had by all. Excluding the children that is.
I posted pics in my Flickr for anyone interested in the going ons at the fair. Though I am sure all state fairs are the same. Maybe a few different carnies is all. I doubt many live very long, especially if fair food is their main staple. Well, that and the booze and crack.1 Comment
I had to stop at the grocery store after work to pick up a few things. As I was walking to the meat counter there was this old couple standing there. They looked like they were in their late 70′s or maybe early 80′s. I haven’t a clue. They were old and gray and rather fragile looking. The old man was holding the woman’s purse with two hands in front of himself while she was searching through packages of beef. I smiled internally thinking “Aww how cute”. As I stepped closer, looking at some of the ground sirloin, I heard the old woman say, “Do you want this or some chicken?” He mumbled something incoherent and she said, “God dammit speak up you old bastard!”
I then smiled externally, grabbed a package, turned and thought “Now that’s more like it.”2 Comments
