Girlfriend of the year
Someone is nerdy. Did I mention that? Not that I’m not, of course. I’m a huge nerd. And one of the reasons I love Someone is that he reminds me how much more nerdy I could really be!
One of the things that Someone started saying very early on into our relationship was that he wanted to go to the Renaissance Festival with me. Of course, I balked at this for two months until we decided to trade an Eagles game viewing experience and a shopping trip for an afternoon at the “Renn Fest.” Good deal for me, right??
I actually had a really great time. The weather was gorge and the company was a joy, so we just walked around looking at everyone and trying not to make obvious facial expressions and attempting to mask our laughter. We saw dueling fools, threw metal throwing stars at a wall, ate turkey legs, and watched a joust.
Someone drank mead, I had hard cider, and we listened to little singers and crazy people. I avoided the people “in character” who liked to harass, and only saw two almost-nip-slips out of wench corsets. (Gross.)
Have you ever been to such a weird collection of things, people, costumes, and sights??
