you ran away and joined the circus, what would your role be? Would you
run a concession? Would you train elephants? Be a clown? Ringmaster?
I would NOT be a clown. I would NOT want to taint another generation of innocent children. In case you don't pick up on the tone, clowns are not my favorite critters. FEARFUL and a little creepy. But, I did have a bad clown experience. I was five...something unexpected and loud happened, I spilled my popcorn. And another incident at a circus had me spilling a very large, very sticky pop down the back of the person in front of me. But that had nothing to do with clowns.
What I would do? Feeding peanuts to elephants. Yes. Low level trapeze. Six feet off the ground. I'd do that. Maybe five feet.
