It’s the Fourth of July, and I’m helping Yerkes set up a full blown circus show with a closing fireworks exhibition at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena.
One of the elephants leaves a very large pile of “road apples” on the ground, a pile five times the size of my horse’s poop. And, of course, with my perverse sense of humor, I scoop up the pile and walk up to the crowds as they start to enter and say – as if I was really lucky: “Look what I almost stepped in!”
Their reactions are priceless. One after another each starts to say about my good fortune, “Its good you didn’t step . . .” then they stop in mid-sentence as they realize I did not step in it, that I am holding the messy mass of manure in my bare hands.
Ah, yes, the rewarding life of a circus performer!Entertain, Learn the One Handed Triumph
