I think we’re just gonna to have to be secretly in love with each other and leave it at that, Richie.
A long long time ago…long before I knew what I wanted to do with my life, I was on a sort of walkabout if you will. I worked in a stand making cotton candy (there really isn’t anything to it as long as you have sugar, flossine and an Econo Floss Machine). I made so much of it one summer that I would leave work having had a sugar facial and for weeks after the fair, there was still sugar embedded in my skin.
It was just before things got strange and I ran off to art school. I still have fond memories of making all different kinds of cotton candy and making tips from people requesting large orders of it. It was lots of fun and sometimes it was just me and that machine.
Last year, I assisted a friend of mine when he had to make cotton candy for a party and asked if I knew how the machine worked. Even after all these years, I could still load the machine and spin a few yarns of floss. I don’t think you ever forget how to make it.
