Once again, a funny thought and a memory of way back when.Autumn and I loved our best buddies, Tim and Alex. Our best guy buddies and thankfully our neighbors for a good long time, we shared so many good times with them.
This incidence occurred back when we were 10 or 11 years old, still kids and still having fun. It was a fall day we were still having Indian Summer here in PA, so it was a nice day. We all got together and were trying to decide what to do for the day. As luck would have it we were having a fall festivial in our little town and we all agreed it would be a fun time. We got our parents permission and with the agreement we would be back in 3 hours.
It was not anything real wild and exciting this little festival, but it seemed like a nice thing to be doing for the day. You kind of had to go with the flow, especially when living in a small town such as ours. We took off about 1PM and would have a walk of 15 minutes, Autumn and Tim walked ahead of Alex and I. It was best for all concerned when we had then those two clearly in our view, Autumn and Tim could come up with some of the wackiest stunts. The two of them together, had been cooking up schemes of some sort for years!
Well, we arrived at the school grounds where the little festival was being held and it was kind of busy. Lots of kids our age were also thinking it would be a fun adventure. There were a few rides and games to play, a kind of mini-carnival if I had to describe it.
We walked aorund chatting to this friend and that, just taking everything in.We spotted this one game, it was throwing balls and I knew Alex was good at that. I had my eye on this most adorable little stuffed kitty, Alex would win it for me, I just knew it! While I was busy cheering him on, Tim and Autumn had veered off in another direction, heading for one of the rides. Well, we would catch up to them in a few moments. It took Alex just a short time and before I knew it, the stuffed kitty was in my arms and I was a happy girl.
We were chatting and walking along, trying to see where Autumn and Tim had gotten to…Where in the world were those two?! Finally we did spot them, there they were on the ferris wheel. Oh no, Autumn didn’t do well with heights either and they were nearing the top. Alex and I just watched as sure enough Tim was trying to calm down a screaming Autumn. Oh boy, was she loud and how embarassing they were attracting a small crowd, too. It seemed like forever, but Autumn and Tim finally reached the ground. The guy in charge of the ride was more than happy to let those two out, Autumn still carrying on and telling Tim off very loudly for talking her into the ride
. My goodness, Tim was looking guilty and sad, promising Autumn the best prize he could win if she’d just stop being upset.Autumn was eyeing my stuffed kitty, well she wanted something more interesting than that, she told Tim. Looking back those two were kind of amusing, best buddies for sure and Tim always going out of his way to make Autumn happy. Well, to be honest he’d been doing that for years, ever since the unfortunate toad incident.
Alex and I wandered off, letting those two go on there own way we were off to have some ice cream anyway. By the time we all caught back up with each other, there was Autumn with a large stuffed unicorn in her arms and a happy smile. It seems Tim had spent the major part of his allowance winning her the stuffed unicorn, but he was back in Autumn’s good graces.
All was well and the four of us headed back home, our three hours had flown by. It had been a fun time and our adventure at the Fall Festival drawing to an end, with Autumn and Tim only having caused a small drama this time around.
