Maybe Next Year...Not!

Okay, so May Days was not a raging success. We sold a little, but the crowds were thin. In fact, we sold more in one day at Gypsy Market than in 3 days of MM.

We were, however, rich in drama! The second night, the pawpaw in the next booth had a heart attack. I felt so bad for him and his wife. We helped shut down the booth while they were on the way to the hospital. He is going to be okay though.

Next day, I'm talking to a couple pof ladies about plants when a vendor runs up screaming at the ladies and digging through their cart. Turns out they had stolen a bunch of merchandise. Man!

About an hour later my brother and his kids along with my friend Phyllis come walking up and Bubba was purple he was so pissed. Turns out one of the carnival people had pulled a fast one and got $60 from Bryant. Bryant was going to go back and beat his ass, but since I really don't have room to raise his children for 5 to 10...and the fact that I AM big sister, I marched off to complain. I found the person in charge of the carnival and we confronted the guy. He tried telling us that he told Bryant he had "four for one". My reply was "What the hell does that even mean! WE don't speak carnival!" Asshole. I got the money back.

And when I thought the drama was over....I look up to see the police escorting my oldest (the brilliant idiot) and his friend to me. Turns out they ran out of money and started panhandling (because it was too far apparently to come and ask me for more money). When that got boring
the friend started asking people if they wanted to buy drugs. On what planet does that sound harmless or funny?! One fo the kids turned out to be younger than they thought and his parents called the police. I would have done the same.

Cody doesn't think he should be punished becasue he didn't say it. But I'm pretty sure he egged it on. And I'm pretty sure he thought it was hilarious until the cops showed up. And I'm pretty sure he is going to be on lockdown for quite awhile!

I'm also pretty sure I'm skipping May Days next year.

Read in the Holy Bible
1 John 1:9-10
9. If we confess our sins, he (God) is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

10. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him (God) a liar, and his (God*s) word is not in us.
