As I left the gas station the other day this really nice man who happened to be wearing a bakers hat gave me this nice box of donuts and told me to share with my friends at the circus . Tavana gave all of us ladies flowers because the production is so wonderful and everyone is so happy about it's wonderfulness . Flowers and donuts , what could be nicer ?
A couple of days ago Fresia had her throat looked at and scraped , her tonsils were the size of walnuts and all crevice like . The nurse practitioner said that when your tonsils are all swollen everything in your head takes a pratfall . Headache ,earache , fever ,swollen glands etc etc.. All she needs to do is dry up the gunk in her head . We happily ( because it wasn't strep throat ) hightailed it to the drugstore . All she needed was an antihistamine ,a decongestant and Advil . Well guess what you can't buy pseudephedrine in Arkansas unless you have a prescription or an Arkansas license because of all the meth labs !!!! We had to get a prescription .
CRAZY or what ?
My solution..wet counties
Emily (circus school kitten ) has been riding elephants in the show . She is pretty happy about this . I tell you there is nothing that I know that is more fun than riding an elephant . Anyway we were chit chatting about what she learned in " circus school " or more accurate what she didn't learn . Circus School owners and students take note . These are very important skills .Circus make up ,traditional ta da or styling , how to manage money if you have a concession job, traditional Spanish web , hairpiece and headpiece wearing ,costume repair , living on the road , fishnet mending , the mystery of the correct undergarment , how to not look like you are walking through mud . In circus school she learned acrobatic and aerial skills mostly , but if you ask me that is like having awesome ingredients without a dish and a garnish to serve it in ....don't be selfish teachers !! Not every student is going to have their own makeup artist or work in an angst show wearing gray underwear .
She has learned many things here " on the job " .
There is always something to discuss when you work in nature . Us intellectuals have been discussing different qualities of mud that we get to work in . There is clay like mud that clings and grows and sometimes sucks your mud boots off . Silky mud that hoses off easy , but can be very slippery . Red mud that stains everything . Pebble mud or mud with rocks in it . Sometimes an animal might have to use the ladies room walking to work , this make for muddy manure shoveling . It was a funny conversation , what kind of people sashay around the planet and dance in mud ?
