Someone was reading the local paper, and saw in the classifieds an ad for a traveling carnival, with hotel and travel expenses paid for, as they traveled all along the eastern seaboard.
Now, most people would see this and shake their heads, as everyone in this house did...except for me. Damnit, it sounds fun, it sounds like an adventure, and probably a spectacularly bad idea. ;)
But dangit, I kinda wanna run away and be, as Penn puts it, 'carny trash'. ;)
