Rodeo Houston 2018 was definitely better this year-- at least for me. (*cough cough nearly died in the line waiting for the bus cough cough*)
This time we were going because someone got to auction off their rodeo art even though they didn't get the place they wanted (wink wonk), although I was stuck at the very end of the lots. (Also got a good parking pass, so I didn't have to wait in a line for 9325850598209 hours while dying!!)
Lots 1-16 get a lot of money, lot 1 actually got $200,000+ money, and gets to take home $13,000. While everyone else (sadly) can only take a maximum of $2,500 home. (Still got it though!)
But we were walking around and my mom goes: Austin, want some boots for next year? And I was pretty cool with the idea, so I took the price tag of one of the boots, looked at it, and put it back down.
I kid you not, that auction money was only going to be able to get me one pair of boots from that particular brand.
We were also walking around, and I had to stop by this stand selling creamed honey, and fun fact, other than chocolate, my other guilty pleasure is honey, so I came home with ten dollars less and a nice pound of creamed honey.
Then my mom wanted to see this show with this mariachi band playing. They all spoke Spanish, so I had no idea what was going on the entire time, but my mom was so insistent on staying, I really had no choice but to sit for another two hours wondering what I could be doing with this precious time, such as stealing all the rabbits and baby chickens from the exhibits at the other end.
i'm joking ples don't attack me
