Circus is all around us. We even talk circus in everyday life. My office, for instance, looks like a three-ring circus. That’s because I’m juggling too many projects. Writing and promoting books while making presentations and visiting with kids at schools is a high-wire act. But it’s fun to clown around with them. To get it all done, though, I sometimes have to twist myself in knots, like a contortionist.
You get the idea. How many circus phrases do you use or hear?
