A Personal Story

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Here's a story about a time at a circus.

Audio and voice recording >>

The Ringling Brothers Circus

We were on the light rail on our way to the circus. A lady helped us know which one we were supposed to take.
“We’re here,” my mom said. The circus smells of popcorn, cotton candy, and snow cones.
“I can’t wait,” I said. “This is going to be amazing.” We were going to find our seats.
“Let’s go find a concession stand and get some food,”
“Okay,” my mom said.
We were back at our seats and sitting down When the circus started.
“Just in time,” I said   
“Yeah,woo,go.”I was at the circus watching the  amazing Alex Alexander tame the lions.
“Shh”My mom hushed me.
“Here comes the ring master,” someone shouted.
“The legends are great and they are good.”he sang.
“Woo.” I was amazed. They had people juggling flaming torches.
It was time for the trapeze people. “Will they fall,”I thought. I gasped, the guy fell whew he landed on the net.
“Wow,” I cried. That was amazing.
“There's a guy on the tightrope, on a motorcycle?”
“Look at him go,he is awesome.”
“WOW.” he was upside down driving it into the curtain. He picked a woman up out of the crowd. “Yikes she screamed
“It’s the elephants, their doing handstands.” They trained the elephants to do amazing things like do handstands, balance, and hang upside down.
“It was time for the clowns to come out. They were dressed as cavemen?”I said. I was kind of confused.
“Oh.” I see now they are from back in the past.
They were sliding across a table. “Bonk,” he hit a clown on the head with a plastic bone.
That had to hurt a little bit, I thought.
Here comes the unicorn and a Pegasus
“They are so fake, doesn't anybody no there are no such thing.”I said.
“Here comes our prehistoric friend,” is what the ring master said.
“Oh please it’s a elephant in a costume. Who would believe it was real.”
“I would,”my mom said.
“Just enjoy it and have fun. Think of the positive not the bad.”
“Okay,” I said.
“Thanks for bringing me mom I had fun.”
“I am glad you did because I did to.”
It is over now but I will always have memories of it. Time to go home and dream about it, I thought.
