As my husband so cleverly quipped, "Well, that was worth at least one trip to the emergency room. I wonder whether it will be you or one of the children."
I vowed to keep my feet on the floor just to prove I have some self control, but I have been sorely tempted to try a round off or flying lay-out so that when I land perfectly I can throw my hands up and yell, "Heh!" I suppose a home trapeze and tight rope are out of the question.
We went to the circus on Sunday for a fun, old-fashioned show. The Ringling Gold Show, An Upside Down World, is a small one ring only circus. The idea is to get the audience closer and have more interaction with them. Of course there were bad seats (not ours), but the show seemed warm and personal.
Personal is great, but I wanted the tents and animal smells. I wanted three rings and dust flying. But the modern circus show wasn't completely disappointing and I left ready to cartwheel across the parking lot.
