Carnies

The Carnival came to our hometown this past week, so Friday my little sister and I went to enjoy being scrambled around in those crazy rides.

The lights of Carnival Rides at night is such a spectacular sight.
It's so magical.



The whirring of the rides, the scent of funnel cakes and popcorn, and the loud music accompanied by screams from the Scrambler and Tilt-a-Whirl.


But those Carnival workers are a class of their own, are they not?
I never knew they were nicknamed Carnies until our family had a discussion about it.
I know you shouldn't judge people, but you know when you go to a fair you feel a little uneasy with some of these characters. Just the term "Carnies" sounds gross to me. None of the particular workers at the fair in our town had teeth, or hygiene from the looks of it. Serious BO my friends.

So my friend Ben sent me this video after we joked about it, and I laughed so hard.


Gosh, y'all are probably thinking I'm so mean after this post.

But be honest, do you know what I'm talking about?! ;)

My husband's work does a "field day" each year and they hire carnies to work the games... they are the best!

I haven't been to a carnival in years. Someone got shot when I was in elementary school so my mom stopped taking us.

Those are great photos! The tilt effect makes me feel like I'm on the ride myself! So funny, my mom and I had the same discussion about Carnies recently :)
