Growing up, my family did a lot of activities. We had Lion's tickets, Piston's tickets and we would go to a lot of shows that came to Detroit.

One show I remember VERY vividly, Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus!

During part of the show, a clown came up into the stands and asked for volunteers for part of the show. I was probably about 8 years old and my hand shot up like a rocket! I had no clue what I was being asked to do, but who wouldn't want to be part of the Circus?

I am not sure why or how, but the clown picked me!! I was lead down to center ring as my parents looked at each other in disbelief. I was told to sit on a chair and whenever the clown pointed at me, ring a bell...simple enough. The show went on and I did my part as others did theirs. The trick was played on another participant and everyone laughed. I was down there maybe 2 minutes but I sure remember it like it was yesterday! I was given a sucker for participating and I saved that sucker for YEARS. 

I am so excited, the Circus is back in town!
