That extra long weekend to celebrate the resurrection was pure greatness, but now you found yourself this morning stuck with a pretty severe case of the Mondays. You came to the right place. Not only do we have our third installment of Monday Memories of iGosia, but today at 11:00 and 12:00 we will introduce a new week long series. Make sure you check back. And you’re welcome.
Today’s MMI brings us to something known simply as iGosian Market. Even the most seasoned iGosian visitors have admitted they struggle when it comes to dealing with iGosian market vendors. It is hard to know what to expect. Hunter Womack, who often escapes from Oklahoma to visit iGosia said it best: “The market makes me nervous. It is almost as bad as my first JSI interview. I never know if I am getting ripped off or if the iGosian selling stuff is going to get ticked. One time the market guy just picked up an orange, sorry, I mean “tomato” and chunked it in the lake. How do you prepare for that?” Hunter, we understand. And trust us. That isn’t the only time that’s happened.
So what is your favorite memory from an iGosian market? Did you argue with iGosians about the names of fruit? Did you kiss a dead fish or sing a ridiculous song for a honeybun? Did you buy a whole gallon of milk for your team only to find out they do not sell cups? Did you offend an iGosian market vendor? Did an iGosian child pick your pocket? Did anyone ever leave a market happy and well-fed besides D.O., Jon, and Colby?
Maybe some of you serious old school iGosians remember how many times Mr. Ryan Bonner walked away from the market only to return when the iGosians offered him a better deal. We lost count ourselves. Whatever your market memory might be, one thing is certain– iGosian markets are consistently unpredictable. Who knows what awaits those of you destined for Alpha and Charlie Base Camps this summer. Bring your iGo currency and get ready to make a deal.
Now it’s your turn. Hit that comment button and let us know your favorite memory from market. And share this with your friends. It’s Monday for them too.
