Well the Carnival is Back in town, and I had 10 dollars.
I was going to stop and get a caramel apple, but right next to the concession stand, was a whole gleaming bank of my favorite carnie game.
So at 2 dollars a play (I remember when they were a fucking quarter!!!)
I said gimme 5 games, 6 balls a game (once upon a time you got 9 balls.)
To win you have to hit 150
and you get a dinky toy.
Piece of cake!
You can trade that toy in for the next bigger if you win again.
For 10 wins you get the BIG prize.
Now then, I had six balls per game.... I turned to the attendant before play... "What if I get higher than 150 per game?"
Attendant: "At 300 it counts for 2 wins."
Me: OKAY, gimme 5 games and stand back.
Attendant looked at me like I was seriously not a threat.
Now all I have to do is figure out what to do with a teddy bear the size of Cleveland.
Perfect 300 Game all Five games, 10 wins.
Not bad for 10 bucks.
But I'm thinking I should have got my caramel apple, I've no clue what to do with this green monstrosity!
But I so kick ass at that game, and I've not lost my touch seeing as I haven't played this for at least 5 years if not going on 10!
I managed to do all this with my great big honking suitcase I call a purse hanging off my arm throwing me off balance to boot! (What set my purse DOWN? Are you nuts?) So not bad at all, I'm pleased with myself tonight.
