Remember your first circus?
The excitement as the animals and performers all came in, music blaring, ring master chanting?
Remember your gasps as you watched acrobats perform what seemed to your young eyes to be impossible feats?
Remember seeing the elephants and thinking, “It’s not just Dumbo. They really do line up like that”?
Remember the ball in the pit of your stomach as you watched riders in this or that steel cage of doom?
My folks took me to my first circus when I was about L’s age, and I still remember those sights. Hopefully the Girl will remember today’s first as well.
