When I took my family to the State Fair recently, we were all looking to have a good time.
We wanted to ride all the carnival rides, play games, see the shows, and check out the animals.
Of course, we were looking forward to enjoying some hot dogs and funnel cakes as well. We were having a pretty good time through the day, but the problem was that it was becoming severely hot. We were starting to break out into a sweat and there was no place where they actually had air conditioning. There were only shaded areas in some of the tents, and even in those places it felt relentlessly hot without any air conditioning. Eventually we ran across this salesperson who was selling all kinds of souvenirs and something special. The special item he was selling was cooling hats. These were hats that had a form of a cooling system that worked by being soaked in water. The reflective tops would reflect away the sunrays and the extra absorbent materials would keep wet for a long period of time providing you with ultimate cooling relief. We were lucky because there were just enough hats for all of us. They were a little bit expensive, but honestly they were worth it! We soaked our hats in the nearest water fountain and those hats kept us perfectly cool for the rest of our stay at the fair! There was even another family who offered to pay us a good amount of money for our cooling hats, but we had to decline. I guess those hats were a bit hit at the fair!
