Manic Monday #171

If you care to join in answering the questions, please do so!

1) If you joined the circus, what act would you want to perform?

Answer: You would not catch me on the high wire! I would do the bareback riding tricks with horses. Then, I might also want to be a clown.

2) Would you generally overdress or under dressed at a party?

Answer: I'm more inclined to under dress than to overdress.

3) Do you feel children should be sheltered from unhappiness?

Opinion: It depends upon what the circumstances are surrounding the cause of unhappiness. I do not believe in overprotecting children, but then I do not feel it necessary to expose children to every little life's unhappiness either. In my humble opinion, I think children are overexposed to a lot of unnecessary facts which can be better understood and handled as they mature. Bottom line, let children be children - don't take away their childhood.

Good questions, I enjoyed your answers. I might go for the lion tamer but I'm probably better suited for the sideshow barker, lol.

I made some lemonade, come to my Lemonade Stand and pick up the award I have for you.

1. I don't want to act. I want to be the animal trainer. Then I would set the animals free and take a whip to the owner that dared to put the wild animals in cages. Sorry Lynn - I just don't think God made animals to dance and do tricks for our entertainment, therefore I hate the circus.

2.Always underdress. I am Ms. Casual Attire.

3.No. I think unhappiness is a fact of life. I believe it should be tempered in doses they can handle though.

I would definately be a clown. I always underdress and as for the children, I guess it depends on the age. In general I don't believe in sheltering, I am always very honest with my daughter. When she was younger I was more careful though to explain things in a way she understood and wasn't terrified by. Its hard to do, tough question, but a good one.

Judy, lemonade sounds wonderful right now. Just did 35 minutes on the Nordic.

Rae, no apology needed. lol But I will keep my distance.

Anne, the clown thing kind of appealed to me also. I keep seeing them getting out of a little car, like one, two, five, then ten, and at least two or three more. lol

Thanks to all for participating.

An enjoyable post and an interesting read. Clowns always make people laugh so I guess that would be me as I like it when I make people laugh. Laughter is good for the soul :)
