Roll Up! Roll Up!

.
I'd quite like you to read this blog post whilst humming the "diddle, id, did, diddle, id, did, didddle id dee dee dee" circus music.
.
.
The circus came to town here a few weeks ago and granny*jelly generously bought us tickets to go.
.
. .
.
We watched hoola-hooping girls, juggling acrobats, clowns being daft and plates spinning on sticks.
.
We discussed the perils of juggling fire and how you shouldn't really do that, actually.
.
And then out came the trapeze lady.
.
Who exactly was it that decided trapeze ladies should wear the skimpiest of pants displaying their assets for all the world to see?
.
This lady, whilst she had a perfectly pleasant bottom encased in fishnet tights, was giving us views only a gynaecologist should have to see.
.
Okay, she was 20 feet above our heads at the time, but even so, very little was left to the imagination.
.
(She must have been on very friendly terms with her bic razor is all I'm saying.)
.
In my opinion, if there's any chance of impressionable young boys being in the audience, a far more sensible clothing choice would be something like this:
.
.
.
.
So. Whilst we were gasping at this lady's nether regions, I mean, trapeze talents, boy*jelly leans across to me and whispers in my ear ...
.
.

"I think that lady has put her pants on back to front".
.
.
I just hope that he never has tickets to sit and watch a lady doing the splits whilst wearing a g-string and fishnet tights again.
.
But if he does ... I'd rather he didn't take his mum and granny with him.
.
.
PS - I got told off by the head-of-security man for taking that top photograph.
I was behind the saftety fence you see and might have fallen over.
Thankfully, I remembered my life-long talent of looking where I was going and lived to see another day.

Cripes. Imagine if you hadn't got the skill of looking where you were going, and fallen and, ooh, I don't know, grazed your knee. Well, lucky for you you didn't. Or there could have been an emergency, couldn't there?

We went to the 'American' circus last year...which was full of Eastern Europeans putting on American accents, and ladies in g-strings and fishnets. It was interesting experience....

Yep hopefully by the time he's paying to see young nubile women in g strings you and his granny will be the last people he'd want sat next to him. LOL

I think you might have to be a bit more specific with your size for me LMAO Actually I'm on the hunt for a good campervan design to turn into a stencil so watch this space, ok well maybe not this exact space but you know the space I mean..right?

OK, my kids want to know why I'm sitting here singing the circus song.

Well? Well? What am I going to tell them? I'll never be able to look a pair of fishnet tights in the eye again, without the accompanying mental music.

Goodness me, I kind of admire the confidence 'shown' by that lady but it might have put me off my candyfloss. Emma x
