I have always loved the Circus. There was a time when I had been to one. Even though, all that happened was a bit awkward, I enjoyed the whole trip.
At first there were the Jumping Monkeys. Their act has a name called the Trapeze. Everything was going fine until one Monkey fell.
There was a safety net to save him.
Next we had Mr. Clown take the stage. He was funny until he started Juggling.
Since I am bad at Juggling, my influence was a bad thing.
He decided to juggle three balls and Unicycle at the same time.
Big Mistake! He fell. There were some Boos. A guy behind me said, "Dude, I can Unicycle better. Give me your Job!"
After a few minutes, another guy arrived. He claimed to be a Magician. First, a Bird flew out of his Kerchief. It was followed by a Golf Ball. It didn't fly. Just fell down!
He now wanted to show a Card trick. The trick required a volunteer. I wasn't looking. Nor was I lifting my hand.
"Come on. Help me with this trick."
"No, that's Okay!"
"Don't be shy. You're going to love it."
I did get a feeling that choosing me was a big mistake. In the next few minutes he was about to be showered by many Boos!
"Here's a Deck of Cards. Shuffle it."
I shuffled the cards and gave Mr. Magician the deck.
"Now pick a card. I am not looking. Show it to everyone. Tell me when you are ready."
It was a 3 of spades.
"The Card, its at the tip of my tongue. Anytime now..."
Just tell the Card.
"Your card is the Queen of clubs."
"Okay then... the 2 of diamonds?"
I thought, the whole thing was a part of the act.
Some guy from the audience said, "Just get over with it. Tell the card. I am in a hurry!"
"Alright then, the 4 of clubs.."
"Yes it is. It is one of these three cards."
"No it isn't."
The Boos had already begun. I knew this would turn bad. The man looked really angry. Another second and a punch would have landed on my face.
Everyone started leaving. So did I. I could still hear the guy barking at my back, "Let's do it again. Come back!"
No Hooray this time!
The trip had a tragic end. I enjoyed it though...
