The circus of the sun - Sing With Me If It's Just For Today...
If I should fall behind, Guyster, wait for me.
The circus of the sun

Joe took me to the circus Wednesday night. There is no possible way to step out from the giant blue and yellow striped big top tent of Cirque du Soleil without the smile of a child.

When Joe gets agitated, whether in a crowd or in conversation, his eyebrows travel northward, sometimes almost reaching his hairline.

The little pony-tailed girl sitting in front of us sucked her thumb, her attention never wavering from the stage.

We ordered two hot dogs and two small drinks at intermission. It cost almost thirty dollars. Contortionists must be very expensive.

Some of the most breathtaking parts of the show were the smallest ones having nothing to do with flying through the air or juggling.

The seats were so smushed together that Joe and I overlapped.

When we went to sit down in our excellent fourth row seats Joe had purchased, I made an off-handed comment to the black woman sitting next to me along the lines of, “They really force us to cuddle up here.” Her husband scowled at me.

I wish all time would fly by as quickly as it did at the circus.

I ♥ Cirque du Soleil

I got front row once, by chance. I got asked to go on stage by the strong man. *sigh*

which show? I love Cirque du Soleil, so freaky and otherworldly and in such good ways.

But, yes the seats suck!

I was given the chance to go to Cirque du Soleil when I was at Disney last year but didn't on account that the tickets were so expensive...you make me wish I had!

I've always wanted to go to Cirque du Soleil, but never got around to doing it. Someday...

I'm glad you got to go & that you had a good time.

We saw the show in Florida last week. Excellent show. I've seen Mystere in Vegas as well. But both of those are in permanent theatres and seating is not an issue.
