Hands Off My Elephant Ear! [poll]
I’m a little protective when it comes to food. Just ask my wife. But I’m particularly stingy when it comes to fair food. I’m not sure exactly what it is; I think it’s because it only comes around once a year and it’s one of the few chances I get to really chow down without feeling guilty.
All I know is that when we get to the fair, I head straight to the elephant ears and I do NOT want to share. Now, I’m not a complete jerk about it. If anyone wants an elephant ear, I’ll stand in line and get you one too. I simply want to sit and enjoy every single bite of my very own elephant ear. And don’t give me the “I’ll just have a bite” routine. We all know that a “bite” quickly turns into splitting it down the middle.
Man… I’m reading this back to myself and I’m a little embarrassed. It sounds like I’m being quite childish about the whole thing. Perhaps it’s because the fair brings out the kid in me… and I didn’t really like sharing so much then either.
