Midsummer’s Country Fair is Open

23 07 2007

Hear that music? The country fair is back!

Snook has a nice big game booth on the Midway this time, where homeschoolers and unschoolers can pitch quarters at a dazzling array of schoolthink dishware to take home, piped out into carnival shape by lips like Harry Potter, Stanley Fish and Clarence Thomas.

This carnival’s barker (Meg) suggests we take the time to smell the kettle corn and cotton candy; don’t race from booth to booth with kids in tow. Enjoy each booth on its own, read the comments too, savor each flavor in turn, don’t make ourselves sick . . .
