At the North Dakota State Fair
StoryCorps advance coordinator Eliza and facilitator Anna drove to the State Fair in Minot, ND, after work yesterday. We saw the finest cows, goats, pigs, eggs, watermelons, and quilts in the whole state.
We rode a few of the rides in the midway and discovered that there comes a point in one’s life when getting whirled around upside down isn’t as fun as it used to be — we had reached that point.
As we stumbled off a ride called “the Zipper,” we had the happy surprise to run into a recent StoryCorps participant, Angeline, who had just finished riding the Zipper for the fifteenth time.
