I'm not even joking. When I lived out in California, there was a
"circus training center" about a half hour from where I
lived. I saw an ad in the paper one day when I was about 12 that was
advertising trapeze artistry lessons, and I wanted to do it so bad I
begged my mom to drive me to the center. We got there, all ready to go
for my lessons...but it was closed. We never went back.
And I have hated the circus ever since.
Please see here. Sorry, it's a little fuzzy though... ;(
