Tomorrow is a day I look forward to all summer long. Once a summer we load up the car and head north to Canobie Lake Park in Salem, NH. Now, I'm often accused of being a big kid and this is a prime example of why.
I love amusement parks. The more rides the better. Roller coasters, flume rides, Ferris wheels, flying swings and hell even the nauseating Turkish twist...Bring'em on! Another reason I love amusement parks is the food. Fried dough, hot dogs, fried chicken, french fries m(See a patern?) and do not forget the beer!
This is what's leaving me less than amused. All that food is not included in my current lifestyle and to be honest, besides the beer I don't really even want any of it. I think it is just the carnival atmosphere that tricks me into thinking I want it. It is like when a person quits smoking. They feel goos and do not even have a craving...until they drink, then all bets are off. It's a trigger. So I have made a decree that I will not be indulging in the trans fatty debauchery of Canobie Lake Park, but you can bet your ass I will be having 1 beer! Because not even apple pie is as American as Anhueser-Busch and Amusement Parks.
I'm only human!
