If you had told 23-year-old Cathy that 43-year-old Cathy would ever write an homage to the Florida State Fair, 23-year-old Cathy would have thrown her coffee (23-year-old Cathy always had coffee) in your face, stomped out her Virginia SuperSlims menthol cigarette with her Nine West “Kimmy” stacked-heel penny loafer, sneered a little and walked away.
Twenty-three-year-old Cathy was kind of a bitch about the Florida State Fair.
Florida State Fair
$9, plus rides (armbands, $20-$30). Feb. 4-16. Florida State Fairgrounds – 4800 US Hwy. 301 North, Tampa. 1-800-345-FAIR. floridastatefair.com.
It wasn’t her fault, not entirely. The country music station WQYK had a lot to do with it, although, really, it comes down to Cathy being way too immature to appreciate the finer things.
Finer things? At the Florida State Fair, where if you can eat it, you can deep fry it?
