According to what I remember, the old footballs (the one you throw around, not the one you kick) were made of a skin from a pig--hence, the "pigskin" part.
|Oh look! A picture of a football! (this isn't my pic, btw)|
"But Connie," you may be asking. "What does any of this have to do with the story you mentioned a few lines ago?" Ah, yes. That lovely story from a few lines back. Well, you see, there is a football game going on at the same time as the bazaar. Put 2 and 2 together, and you have the Pigskin event, simultaneously referring to the actual game and the bazaar at the same time.
But mostly to the latter. The game pretty much a bonus.
Confusing? Hope not. I'd hate to have to retype that entire thing all over again.
My school had our pigskin last Friday (September 16). I volunteered to help out for my school's Art Club (proud member since 'o9...booyah), and thus spent a whopping 11 hours at school yesterday.
Why 11? I ended up staying after school to help set up (the event started at 5 pm).
Anyways, back to my story. The Art Club was offering caricatures and cotton candy at the Pigskin (why yes, I did eat a lot of cc. How did you know?) and I volunteered to draw caricatures. We were allowed to draw in whatever style we wanted, and we were only required to bring in one example artwork:

So how was everyone else's day?

PS--What do you think of this layout? Do you prefer having pictures between chunks of words, or having them all mashed up into one pile like the previous posts?
