It better not be raining today because I’m supposed to be at the Big E for the first time in my life. I have every intention of eating myself through The Big E. I think it will cost an arm and a leg, but I want to taste a bite of everything.

Fried Kool-Aid—what’s the point? I don’t know, but I’m fascinated to know what it’s all about. On one level the food that is offered at The Big E seems like the epitome of what is wrong with America and yet I can’t draw myself away. I’m fascinated, and I want to know what it all tastes like. I wonder if I actually only eat one bite of everything just how much I will have consumed by the end of the day.

It’s a good thing I have a 12-mile training run planned for tomorrow. On second thought, maybe that’s not such a good thing.
