Yes, Mr. Gumby, Younger Son and I went to the State Fair. Whee! It was hot, hot, HOT (did I mention it was hot?)! But you can't beat it for people watching. What a bunch of odd people! The old man in the glittery gold mesh see-through shirt was a "winner", for sure. Ugh!
We tried lots of disgustingly unhealthful but yummy fair food such as funnel cakes, pig "wings" and lemon shake-ups. Mr. Gumby had to try this year's feature...the Donut Burger. Yes, a hamburger patty with bacon, cheese, onion, tomato and pickles between two Krispy Kreme doughnuts. I tried a bite, just to say I had, and it was surprisingly good. There was a nice contrast between the sweetness of the doughnuts and the saltiness of the burger and bacon. Do you what the funniest thing was about the whole thing?? Mr. Gumby's personal trainer is the one who told him how good the burgers were!!! Yeah, Mr. Extremely Buff ate one earlier this week at the Fair and told Mr. Gumby how good they tasted!! So, of course, Mr. Gumby needed to try one, too, since Mr. Extremely Buff suggested it.
Yes, I am rolling my eyes at how ludicrous this all sounds!
