Reality

We spent a few hours this evening on the periphery of the entertainment business. The TV show Three Wishes came to town. I don't really know much about it other than it's some kind of "reality show" (we called them "game shows" when I was a youth). Apparently they go from town to town granting three wishes to the locals. It's hosted by pop singer Amy Grant.

There was to be a concert by Grant, but the children & I left before the music started. Besides the concert, there was a small carnival with about five rides, a few games, and food. The food lines were prohibitively long, and most of the ride lines were pretty long, too. As with most carnivals, the merry-go-round had short lines, which is just fine with us -- our kids are still young enough to enjoy it.
