Pretend that you have no choice but to work in the circus. What act would you be and why is that the act that would be for you?

OK, lets see... I couldn't be on the high wire or tight rope because I am two left feet. I would for sure fall off and die. I couldn't be the bearded lady...unless you glued whiskers on me. There is no way you are getting me to stick MY head in a tiger's mouth. Clowns...way too much makeup and that would be begging for me to get hurt...as also the person on stilts. I know! Can I be the person that makes the cotton candy? Oh wait! I can't do that! My sugar level would make me go into a diabetic coma. That means I can't work near food. OK, I got it...and I promise to study! I wanna be the gypsy lady that reads tarot cards! :)

I would love to be a trapeez artist with a net! All that soaring through the air really appeals to me. I think I would have such a sense of freedom!

Ally, I can just think of soaring through the air at those heights and my heart races and I break into a cold sweat. If I were to be on the trapeeze, it best come furnished with some Depends.

Trapeze Artist - Trapeze artist
As I am against animals in circus's I would love to be a trapeze artist. They have such grace the way they fly through the air and what amazing figures they have too. I would love a nice young muscle bound trapeze fellow to catch me in his strong arms!!!What a great way to earn a living!! I also love watching those who can hang onto a piece of cloth and spin round, suspend themselves at great heights and look so natural. Being able to do the splits was always an ambition for me, but I never quite perfected it!!

I am scared of heights so I wouldn't be able to do the acrobats, but I like to make people laugh and I am always laughing about something, so I would have to say a clown.

Sadly, I'd be the fat lady .. and the show would be over with me singing (badly, I might add). If I had a choice though, I'd work with the animals or just be a boring ticket person or the person who stands outside the attractions and beckons people to come in and see the next amazing thing. Fun question!

I think I would have to do some lion taming. I would like to say trapeze artist as they are all so awesome but with a body like mine I would probably pull the tent down lol! It would be good to work with the animals though so i'm opting to be a lion tamer!

HaHa!! Bizzie I hear you about pulling down the tent! I'm too afraid of heights too, so I will have to continue to admire the acrobats from afar!

I would have to say the horse act. I love horses and would love to work and take care of them. Groom them, feed them and just generally take care of them. To do the acts on a horse for me would be seventh heaven.

Gee, if I was forced to be in the circus I think I'd have to be a clown or somebody who rode the horses around and did the tricks. Either one would be fun! I like to make people laugh, and heaven knows I sure have my goofy moments...On the other hand, I've been riding horses since I was 5, so that would be fun too.
