What I Learned At The Colonial Fair

Recently we visited a colonial fair.  To say it was entertaining would be an understatement. We sat on the covered porch after hiking the trail to rest in the shade and these entertainers came to, well do what they do. There were several families that came out of this old cabin set along the trail and they too gathered to watch the show. It was enlightening. Here is what I learned.
  1. Acting and storytelling is not for me.
  2. Always listen to your parents…your story will end well.
  3. Lots of kids have never heard of David and Goliath even here in the bible belt.
  4. Homeschooled kids know the answers to all of your questions.
  5. Kids really do say the darnedest things.
  6. Any 4 smooth stones are the stones are the stones David did not throw at the giant Goliath.
  7. Kids (and some adults) can’t read cursive -that means trouble reading the founding documents.
  8. There is work for hoarders who can spin a yarn (tell a story).
  9. Don’t cheat on a girl that is willing to go to sea- dressed as a man- to find you and knows how to use a gun and is not afraid to use it. It doesn’t end well.
  10. No matter how romantic the colonials looks in a uniform it is so much better that they are able to bathe.
  11. Can I get an Amen to modern dentistry?
  12. Never pick fruit from a tree in a cemetery (it will save someone the trouble of resurrecting and kicking you in the pants, and you a nasty scare).
  13. Don’t mess with siblings.
