The County Fair Essay

970 words - 4 pages

You could smell the excitement. Girls, boys, women, men, babies,
everyone. If you stepped into a fairground at anytime it would be
writhing will people packed to the rafters unable to move, any shape
any age and I guarantee, every single one of them would be having a

just at a glance.

When you get off the Waltzers or the Holly-Wood, you want something to
eat, and you discover it’s “ONE POUND FIFTY FOR A PORTION OF CHIPS?”.
They are all scabby and bruised, but compared to the intestine which
was supposed to be a sausage, you decide to be the victim to daylight
robbery. The you get your choice of teeth rotting treats, candy floss
or toffee apples, I always go for toffee apples it lasts longer
because it takes you half the night to bite through the toffee.

You decide to brave a “scazza”, after a portion of scabby and a half
