Hi All, Cassie here taking over the blog for a moment.
I had to share that I thought of all of you today (especially BBB) as I was a chaperone for Alex’s school field trip. Thanks to the grandfather of one of the first graders, all of the kids got to visit the Shrine Circus today for free. They’ve been on spring break for the last week and a half and their first day back to school is going to the circus. Gotta love school these days :-)
Anyways, after watching the acrobatics and little puppy show and some beautiful white horses, suddenly out come the 2 brown bears and their trainers to put on a show. Day after day, I read the posts and comments on this blog about your experiences as a WoW bear, but I ask, can your bear do these things?
Ride a bike?
Look this fashionable?
Walk on a moving barrel?
Balance on a moving beach ball?
Ride a very tall bicycle without falling?
And finally, ride a chopper IN bear form?
I didn’t think so!
I now return your to your regular WoW blog :-)
Disclaimer to prevent the comments that I know will come if I don’t say anything – For those who find the circus and what they make the animals do offensive, I understand and partly agree. But I also remember being a 7-year-old going to the circus with my mom for the first time and how great it was. So that is the spirit of how I choose to view today’s event. There will be plenty of time for Alex to think about the animal issue later on, but for today, we had fun watching all the fantastic human and animal talent.
