Have you ever worked a booth at a county or state fair?
When my husband and I owned the shop we set up every year. It was five days, 12 pm to 12 am of endurance testing, scrambling to stay hydrated. I loved every minute of it! Watching the people, eating the fair food, taking breaks and wandering through the exhibits. Rick and I would sit together and just talk without the distractions of a television. It was good for our marriage.
Well, the Democratic party sent out a request for volunteers to man the Democratic booth this year, so I signed Rick and myself up for a three hour stint today. I thought it would be awfully tedious, but that would be ok because I had my FAVORITE book (Seabiscuit) with me. Well, then one of our state reps, Ed Trimmer, showed up and Rick immediately LEFT ME and went and parked himself by Ed. Neat guy. Smart too. He was able to answer a lot of my questions. :) Those three hours went by very, very fast. I also found out that Kansas is a very racist state…. : ( I guess I can’t be friends with Blackberry any more. Sniff.
