Pumpkin Pie Eating Contest
Today was the World famous Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Festival, where the largest pumpkins in the country come to weigh in. And what's a pumpkin festival without a pumkin pie eating contest.
Alexis wanted to prepare for the contest by skipping lunch. She didn't do all that well at skipping lunch once we passed the row of booths with the likes of turkey legs, garlic fries, pizza, corn on the cob, tamales, sourdough bread bowl clam chowder, you name it, there was a booth for it.
Later she reflected that his must have been her downfall, and that she shouldn't have eaten anything, then she might have placed in the contest.
This portly lad was the second place winner, and very proud of it.
This is the third place and second place winners.
Here's what Alexis managed to do to her pie when all was said and done.
Though the contest was done, Alexis apparently was not.
