No, I'm not referring to politics today... (ba-dum-dum-ching!)
Nor am I referring to life here with Team Testosterone. Although I do feel like a ringmaster and they act like clowns a lot of the time. I jump through a lot of hoops and getting past the Legoland/Brio train/battle castle/Spy Gear set up upstairs is an acrobatic feat.
No, I'm talking about a real circus!
We're going to the circus Saturday!
Our weekend is jam-packed like a clown car with fun, starting with play dates after school and bowling tonight. Sunday winds up with the Academy Awards and this year I'm going to a party which will be much better than watching the awards at home where no one else appreciates them like I do. I've tried, you know. It never works out like I plan. But this year will be much better. I'll be with girlfriends. And then Monday morning I get to read Saucy's Oscar re-hash which has become my other favorite part about the weekend ahead.
But I digress. The circus! My favorite part is always the trapeze artists. Awesome names, spangly costumes and high-flying tricks on swings!
Acrobats are nothing to sneer at either...
The boys are excited to eat cotton candy and see the animals. Mr. B and Mr. G have asked me to protect them from the clowns. They're afraid clowns will be there to take our tickets at the door--I've assured them that circus clowns are friendly and don't want to scare anyone--if they're nearby and they think kids are scared, they back off. The boys are still wary, but willing to risk clowns for Big Top Fun.
I haven't been to the circus since I was a kid and I'm excited to bring Team Testosterone to see the show--the greatest show on earth.
Spill it, reader. What's your favorite part about the circus? Cotton candy? Clowns? Lion tamers? Elephants? Cracker Jacks? Acrobats?
