Fall is fair time in Tulsa Oklahoma. Fall is finally here and for Tulsa, that means that the Tulsa State Fair is here for two weeks. Thousands of people from Tulsa and the surrounding areas look forward to the fair and all it has to offer, like the rides and just about every kind of fried food you can imagine and them some. Plus, all the fun things for kids to do like pet the baby animals and play the games on the midway. But as a Realtor, the fair doesn't necessarily equal a good time.
Don't get me wrong, I don't want you to think that I'm a stick in the mud, but the fair for me has meant headaches. I like rides that go upside down while spinning you sideways, cotton candy, and fried snickers just as much as the next guy. In fact I like all the fun things the fair has to offer. It's the stuff that goes along with the fair that irritate and annoy me, like the traffic and people having too much to drink. Teenage pranksters that think it's the best idea they've ever come up with to steal your yard sign as they walk back to their cars. I know I sound like a bitter old fuddy duddy, but really I'm not. Maybe a little resentful but I know how to have a good time trust me.
I guess youth will be youth, and perhaps it's just a little payback for all the...I mean, the little bit of trouble I caused when I was a kid growing up in Tulsa. Ha! Those were the days! I guess I will just have to accept the fact that the Tulsa State fair is going to come and go every year and that I need to plan ahead for when I take listings in the vicinity of the fairgrounds and I know that the fair is coming up, after all, it's only for two weeks.
