Favorite or Odd Fair Food
What's your favorite fair food? Or, if you can't pick, what's the oddest thing you've ever seen?
I ask because this weekend is Spring Fair here at Hopkins, and a friend and I got to talking about what we had eaten so far and what was left. (Spring Fair is like any bazaar or fair you've ever been to, except magnified to fit on a college campus =]). As she ate her Indian combo plate, she said she couldn't understand what all the fuss was over chicken-on-a-stick, a Spring Fair institution. As I chewed on mine, I realized I couldn't really answer. After four years of making absolutely sure that I've gotten it every April, I have no idea why it's so important, haha.
So what's your staple? What's your tradition? And can you explain why?
