Deep Fried Twinkies in the Pouring Rain

So I took daughter, two of her friends and thing 2 to the State Fair yesterday.  Thing 1 didn't want to go, I can't blame him as he is still on crutches, but I needed someone to come with since I knew daughter and her friends didn't want to hang out with me - social suicide - so thing 2 was my pardner for the evening.  (Hardy har har)  It was pouring for the first two hours, what else is new around here, but cleared up about 7pm.
Does anyone actually eat deep fried Twinkies, Oreos or Snickers?  They look absolutely revolting.                                  

Daughter doesn't do rides so I got her to pose for me while she was waiting for her friends to get off of the Spinaroundattopspeeduntilyoupuke ride.  Then I had to get away so no one would see her with her mother, ugh!

Thing 2 in front of the cutest little piglets.  Pigs are not cute but I absolutely love watching the piglets.  They were running around chasing each other and wrestling just like puppies.  I think we watched them for half an hour.

Speaking of pigs, thing 2 made good headway on his underweight problem.  He ate a hamburger, fries, soda, pizza, popcorn and cotton candy.  Every half an hour I heard "I'm hungry".  He has taken the doctor's orders seriously!

Excuse the not so hot quality of the pictures, I didn't want to risk the good camera getting wet so I only had my iPhone to take these with.

Well there's two more things we have in common... I've never had a deep fried Twinkie, Snickers or what have you... I'd kinda like to try one but wouldn't want to risk my arteries seizing up and having a heart attack on the spot, that would be embarrassing, and believe me, I KNOW embarrassing!

The other thing in common? I've got a girl who won't ride rides either. She'll stand around and wait at carnivals and such for her friends... Makes her friends and myself crazy! Disney with her was really a drag, but that was years ago and I thought she'd grow out of it.

Oh wait, 3rd thing... My son is terribly thin and needs to gain wait too. He's 6'2" and 122 lbs. Unfortunately he didn't get that problem from me... Damn!
