I have the most interesting, thoughtful, creative, vocal,enthusiastic,
humorous, witty, beautiful, handsome, adventurous, psychic,
sweaty..oops, scratch that out, exciting, eclectic,fabulous, crazy,
lovable followers that anyone could have. (have I left anyone out ?)
If I have left you out, put your hand up and I will call on you, in turn,
to note your complaint…and to note your personal quirks…
As the title of this post states….
I value your opinion….
Therefore,,,,,tell me…..should I pursue a heart-stopping, hair-brained,
Pardon this image..it’s very poorly shot…but I was overcome with excitement and
what little photographic knowledge I have evaporated at the sight of this sign…
I can see it now!!! Me in my cute little flying trapeze outfit…you know,,that cute
little number that I can barely squeeze into without a shoe horn and four people
stretching the fabric as far as it will go…all while covering their eyes and screaming…
I climb the ladder to the highest of heights….as the motorists passing by honk their
horns and yell..”somebody get a gun! A gorilla has escaped from the zoo!”..(.I
shaved yesterday…it shouldn’t be THAT bad)
I wait to get my timing just right….reach out my hand….grab the bar after it slices
through the air and shoots right at my face…
I miss the bar and get slapped in the face and lose two teeth…..but do I mind?…
I DO NOT! For what is life without adventure? What is life without risk??
I imagine myself wiping the blood off of my smiling face and GRAB THAT
BAR the next time it comes hurtling toward me….SUCCESS!!!!
OH MY **&^*&%^$%^* (insert swear word of your choice here)…
I no sooner grab that bar and fling myself into space….when I realize
that I have torn my adorable little trapeze suit and the motorists are
now getting a standing room only view of my biggest ass…et.
In my imaginary trapeze stardom world……do I let go of the bar and
plummet down, down, down to the net, blushing with embarr..ass..ment?
I DO NOT!….I remain, gripping the bar with steely determination.
Only AFTER I complete a quadruple Squirrelapleximus floop-dee-loo..
do I come back to earth…..having just set 700 world records in the
field of trapeze artistry…
So my friends…..I ask of you…..do I pursue this dream…..or should some
of you run down to the nearest hardware store to buy a net…..a net
with which to capture the author of this post who’s brain is obviously
flying higher than any trapeze could ever go….
Don’t knock each other over volunteering to get the net….
I’m glad you’re all so excited at the prospect….you must
nominate just five people to go get the net…and El Guapo,
you may not use the space shuttle to get there first…
that would be cheating.
I await your nominations for net acquirers…..
