Run Away and Join the Circus!

Did I ever tell you about that time that I almost joined a circus?

I was backpacking across Australia (longer ago than I would like to admit) and I saw an ad for a horse groomer (and camel groomer and goat groomer) for a travelling circus…and I thought: “This could be a FANTASTIC way to see the country!”

Let me be very honest and tell you that I had zero experience as a horse/camel/goat groomer. Or a groomer of any animal for that matter. I figured I’d just wing it…because it’s that easy, right? HA! Well, I never got to find out.

They wanted a six month commitment and I only had a mere two months left to travel.


Wouldn’t that have been an awesome story? My life might have been COMPLETELY different! Maybe I would have run off and joined them PERMANENTLY!

But alas, I did not. I didn’t even see the circus while I was there. And now, every time I do see a circus, I think…that could have been me…IMAGINE!

Also, I have no special talent like tight-rope walking or magic or acrobatic capability. Nope. Maybe I could have been a clown. Yes-I bet I could have done that…although clowns still go to school for that stuff, right? Hmmm…

Whatever guys, I figured joining the circus would be easy and awesome. And I’m totally wrong.

Anyway, now YOU have a chance to run away with the circus and fulfill my dreams! Ok, not really. But you have an amazing chance to win VIP tickets to see the Shrine Circus coming to the Toronto area this summer! WOOHOO!

From Kyrgyzstan to Cuba, Romania to Peru, Argentina to Switzerland, this world renowned family of acrobats, horsemen, aerialists, illusionists, daredevils, and clowns will amaze and entertain. NO DOUBT! Who isn’t entertained at a circus? It’s a CIRCUS! And it looks amazing.

Families performing for families. I can’t imagine a better show.
