There are no more bi-colored squngees available for sale at the state fair. Gophers fans spoke the loudest, and these went the fastest, selling out by Sunday of last week. On Friday of this week the Vikings whooped in victory as they slid into second place and they were sold out as well. Today we FINALLY sold out all the Packers colors, and three extra Vikings that reared their ugly heads when I cleaned off the bottom shelf.
Today I ate my breakfast while touring the poultry building. I was examining the turkeys there because I wanted to see one up close after having them at our home squngee wrestling with the corn. I took another bite of my sandwich. Then it hit me. I was staring down a turkey and eating....a turkey sandwich. I felt like Hannibal Lecter! Speaking of creepy, the poultry barn sounds like a house of horror in the morning. All the roosters are crowing the new day.
It was fantabulous!
I ate one, went back and bought two more right then and there and ate on of those, giving the other to Scott.
Our customers sure are loyal. Today I was brought a late breakfast by a couple that I sold a Squngee to yesterday. I had commented on his great smelling cup of coffee yesterday and today they showed up again, bought a second Squngee as a gift and gave me a cup of coffee all my own and a yummy cinnamon roll. (definately NOT from the food building, see previous entry) Tears in my eyes at their thoughtfulness.
Not all customers are that sweet. I threw 4 giant twentysomethings out of the building that were beginning a fist fight near our booth. I was handing Scott his dinner, it was raining, I was tired, and they started swinging right next to me. I told them, okay perhaps I yelled to them that if they didn't take it outside right away I'd have the copys there in a matter of moments. They stared at me stunned and quietly moved off. Then I realized what I had done, and nearly fainted thinking what could have happened. Ah the things you do when tired.
We had to pull the Squngees inside the booth more than once today because of unruly kids with MIA parents. Sigh. No, I don't mean Minneapolis Institute of Arts.
Dude in drag -
Diva with a weird sense of style?
Vote often, vote now.
The guy with him/her was very mild mannered and normally (insert frumpily) dressed. There is a clue in this photo to a new fashion trend I'm going to try to start.
