Just a Little Rest

This past few weeks have been crazy, but the last especially. Last year when I couldn't find a job, I worked with a staffing company at the South Plains Fair taking tickets. Yes it was a little boring, but I found out a lot about the citizens of Lubbock, the fair brings out the best and the worst crowds. This year, I decided I would do it again. You see I ended up with the best job by the end of the fair, walking the robot and I knew I would get to do it again. Rock-it is a 9 foot robot with mad dance skills, the ability to make children scream and women melt, and the masses laugh. Since last Friday, I have been at the fair everyday as soon as I get off work, JP asked if I feel like a Carnie yet. Rock-it comes out of the coliseum to meet the crowds that are in line for the concerts, Boys-2-Men and Billy Currington just to name a few, and the children that are both amazed and scared by the purple giant. This year, along with his scooter rides, Rock-it signed autographs, everyone was amazed and wanted one. The questions always rise, "Is there a man in there?", "Is that a real robot?" "Where are your controls?", and "How does he do that?" People really amaze me! :)

The guys that run the outside entertainment were amazing. I was invited to attend a BB-Q where I got to meet many of the entertainers and here their stories of how they got to be where they are today. From the bear show to the shark show, they were all completely different.

I'll have to admit that I will miss them, but I'm ready for a little bit of rest. I have met JP at the PD before he goes to work for a few minutes the nights I could. He admitted yesterday that he was ready to "have me back", I think it is just so I will wash some clothes. :)

Hope you all have a great week!
