Ed and Kay went to Oktoberfest, which they simply called the Wiesn, after the colloquial name of the fairgrounds, the Theresienwiese. They had some beer and pretzels and looked around the different tents and amusement rides. Ed bought Kay a heart shaped ginger bread which she put around her neck. Then they rode on the chair merry-go-round. It was exciting but after the second revolution, it started to sleet. They were frightened but there was no way but to endure the blizzard for the next five minutes. It was a hell of a ride for them!

    That would be miserable, to be on one of the outdoor rides when it begins to sleet. Too bad they weren’t able to get off of it.

    Ee, that would be scary. Hanging in these seats, and it gets wet and slippery… Hold on and get through it, nothing else they can do.

    Dear Lady L,

    That would certainly put a damper on the fair. I see by the comments this is non-fiction? Not fun, but a great anecdote. As I tell my husband who’s ridden in rain and hail and lived to tell about it–and tell about it he does–it’s bragging rights. Nicely done.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle
