The Land of Fair Food

 It's been a while since I've been to the county fair. The faded and shabby concession stands that used to share space with the games and rides have now been replaced with shiny new ones offering cotton candy and funnel cakes. My favorite is this one, a veritable temple to fair food, a Corn Dog Castle. The banners flap in the fried-food-scented breeze. Children shriek as the kiddie rides go round and round. Go ahead, have a corn dog. And maybe a lemonade.
