a huge (nervous) smile on her face as she goes airborne
-just for a bit on the goliath slide.
the sky ride
a.k.a. the ski lift death trap.
complete with a woman passed on our descent and her ascent, eyes shut, seemingly
saying hail marys.
screwdriver in his hands
music box monkey watching.
seeing the backside of thing one and thing two as they race to the swing ride,
squealing as they run.
a vitamix demonstration (a la costco) in the exhibit hall.
and in the same exhibit hall dozens of people laying on mattresses being sold.
hearing "hey mom" by game booth hecklers as they try to convince me to get swindled...
er, i mean to play their game.
a 9-11 memorial
questions from post 9-11 born children on why mom is crying while looking at a pile of
metal debris. a mom who was taken by surprise by said display. who didn't think twice
when two seconds before she passed by a firefighter standing next to a NYFD uniform...
and then as she looks at what she is really passing by is completely overwhelmed with
and as she is trying to explain her tears, a group of 20- somethings
pass behind one loudly announcing "single women. hot stuff coming through"
and when she finally turns her head, seeing one of the men from the group
carrying a man sized inflatable siracha sauce bottle, there is laughter mixed with the
the ninja knife.
the del mar fair
(san diego county fair officially)
a bunch of random shit.
wrapped in bacon.
served on a stick.
