Life at the (Big) Top

Every November, we immediately begin looking forward to the next October when the Shrine Circus comes to town. We’ve gone 6 years in a row now, and today marks our 7th trip to this fun family event.

One of the best parts about going to the circus is that during intermission, we get to ride one of the circus elephants! Granted, it’s just a couple laps around a small ring, but for those five minutes I’m a sequinned-leotard-wearing, feather-in-my-hair circus performer, waving at the cheering audience (okay, so they’re all at the concession stand getting a hot dog) and sparkling under the auditorium spotlight (okay, so maybe they have all the lights on during intermission). Regardless, it’s an awesome experience, and afterward – if I’m really lucky – the elephant will reach out its trunk to me to hold my hand (that really did happen once – she must have seen my star quality and knew I would be an asset to the circus team).

So anyway, all of this to say that I won’t be making any French cuisine today. I’ll be riding an elephant at the circus.

I bet Julia Child never rode an elephant at the circus.
