He's been practicing all weekend to outsmart the county fairs this summer. He tells you how and why today.
If you're new to Baby E's Posts, he posts on Mondays. You can go here to read his first post.
Thank you, as always, for listening. He is so lucky to have a place to go with all these feelings he has. Thank you for that.
|Come on, kid, Guaranteed Prize every time...|
Because I never win at carnival games. BUT, and there are a lot of buts, once I got 3006000 tickets and still didn't win anything. At another tent place.
Here is another BUT: they put gigantic prizes that are so hard to get just so you can envy them and try so hard to get them. AND spend money cuz that's what they want you to do.
Well, first of all, I would like to point out that there is ONE fair place: but "one" in out of a million.
Dave & Buster's.
I got a little Angry Birds Plush there, that's about 6 inches tall, for 600 tickets and you can get 600 tickets in only like playing 5 games and getting only a medium score.
This is a GOOD but: one time I got only 3,600 tickets at DAVE & BUSTER'S, cuz they're a great place, and for only 3,600 tickets I got an Angry Birds Plush, which I talked about before, a rainbow slinky--no, orange and white, and it was really, really long and cool. And I got a fake bug that is really annoying. And two robot shaped erasers, and a nerds rope.
With only 3,600 tickets, that's why that's a good place.
At outdoor fair games, there was this one game where they said, "all you have to do is hit that target over with this ball and you get a prize," but they don't tell you the target is 20 feet away and the target is tiny. And that you have to hit it at the exact right center.
So, I tried to win a prize, and I threw the ball and it hits it smack in the middle BUT (and this is another bad but) the game guy says "You MISSED!" And then I don't believe it. BUT I hit it right in the middle and he said you missed. And I know I didn't.
And then I tell everyone that is not a fair game place because I saw it hit the middle.
And then there's this other game at the fair where you have to sink a ping pong ball into a little cup and you win a hermit crab but the ball always bounces right out.
That's the one I'm practicing for.
ALSO: you should get these books for your kids for Christmas. There are books in a series: Wayside School Books. Every page makes me laugh.
Thank you, Baby E!
**I'm also happy and excited to be guest posting for my wonderful friend, Sober Julie, today. She is celebrating her one year Blogoversary.

Thank you, Julie, for including me in the celebration of your new life. It is a pleasure.
