About a month ago, Declan got a free admission for the circus from his school for donating to the Food Bank. I...did not want to go. I knew I would not really enjoy myself and that it would be very draining for me. And hey, look, I went, found most of it to be 'meh' and and now feeling like I've been kicked repeatedly by a mule.

Some of it, of course, was really good, but there was so much that was...there. And the prices of things? Yeesh. $5 for popcorn/cotton candy is a bit steep, and $10 for a pony ride is an obnoxious cash grab. They were also selling these light sabers swords that were essentially LED lights in plastic housing that flashed. There were so many in my peripheral vision that I could feel a headache coming on. And no, I didn't shell out $15 for Declan to bring one home. Two hours of other people's kids with them was plenty.

I was most impressed by the feats of strength and balance, but I would have to say that the contortionist was my favourite. A lot of the audience was unimpressed, but I have a better idea what it takes to be in a full bridge position and balancing on one foot than some. *shrugs*

And the seats? Too fucking narrow. It feels like my hips are bruised from the arm rests. Okay, yeah, I'm fat, but that was a fucking awful experience.

Declan did enjoy himself, so I guess that's the only thing that matters.

EDIT: I have a bruise, about the size of the armrest, on my right upper thigh/hip. My left side feels bruised, but nothing has come up. Note to self: avoid that place in future. The seats do not agree with you.
