monday morning question

         

If you were to run away and join the circus, what kind of circus performer would you be?

(Come on, play along, you can't say "I'm not going to run away!"  This game is just for pretend!)

Here are some possible answers to choose from:  lion tamer, trapeze artist, clown, bearded lady, tightrope walker, unicyclist, fire swallower, knife thrower, human cannonball, and sword swallower.

My answer:  I guess I'll choose to be a clown.  And maybe do some juggling.  Actually clowns kind of scare me.  But there are no other acceptable choices for me.  So clown it is!

Write your answer in the comment section below or write it up in your journal and leave the link below.

    This is right up my alley today, as I would dearly love to run away, life sometimes becomes just too much.  I would be the invisible woman so my son cant find me.  LOL.

    Oh that's easy!  I'd be a bareback rider.  Or the lady who has all of the pretty white horses who makes them do tricks.

  6. Ummmm... what if you really -did- run off and join the circus once upon a time?? LOL! I think if I went back I would want to work with my beloved Tigers, but would also enjoy the horses, or even some of the other exotics. I much prefer taking care of them to actually putting on the costume and performing every day (which I have -also- done!)

  8. No question in my mind, I would be a clown.  I already WANT to be a clown.  I have my clown name picked out.  I would like to go to clown school.  Now I don't really want to do it in a circus, I would rather do it in a children's hospital or something, but I guess I have to run away, to play your game... LOL  FUN question!!  Love, Val xox

  13. Since I've already worked as a real circus clown, juggler, elephant rider, fire-eater, and for the past 6 years one of the last few Sword Swallowers left in the world today, I would probably have to pick something else newn that I've never done before!

    Since I LOVE animals (I work with horses and parrots now), I have always wanted to be either a Big Cat trainer or to fly on the flying trapeze.

    If you get get any responses from others who really want to learn sword swallowing, please send them my way!

    Wow! A real sword-swallower answered!  So cool.  I would make an ok clown, but when I was young, thin and cute as a button I loved the trapeze artists.  That would be my heart's choice.  Blessings, Penny  http://journals.aol.com/firestormkids04/FromHeretoThere http://journals.aol.com/firestormkids04/TimeforaLittlePoetry

    This question presents many problems, because I am scared of heights, I am no longer flexible due to a car accident, several falls, and being hit by a wild woman with an electric cart at the grocery store... I am not coordinated, I don't do animals, I never learned to ride a bike, I have problems with my throat, I don't have a beard, etc, etc, etc.

    If none of those problems were true, however, I would be the beautiful girl on the flying trapeze, who also walks the tightrope, and who is also a contortionist. =.)

  21. I don't think I'd make a very good clown.  I'm not spontaneous enough.  I think I'd like to work with the elephants.  I think they look cool and prehistoric.

    i was going to say I wanted to be the owner. They probably make big bucks.
    But since I have to be a performer, I want to be the guy who puts the giraffes through their paces. I love them and I do not think I have ever seen a giraffe trainer, Bill

    This is late, but I still wanted to give my answer.....   I think I'd like to be the lady that dresses in that cute little outfit and rides the horses around the ring while she stands on their backs and does all those tricks without falling!!

  27.     I can think of two answers. First off, I tell my boys they are jealous because I have more whiskers on my chin than they do. So a bearded lady sounds easy. Secondly, I'd chose to be a lion tamer. Maybe I'd trade in the lions for a few house cats. My Blacky is an evil brat. If I can handle her, I can handle any cat under ten pounds!
