Today’s things are: circus, carnival, freak show
Miss Teresa decided we could all go on an excursion to the circus. Mum wanted to know what educational value there was in visiting a circus, but she signed the permission note, gave me a few dollars to spend at the carnival surrounding the circus and off we all went.
At the front gate, there was a sign saying children needed to be under the control of parents or responsible adult and Miss Teresa reminded us we needed to be on our best behaviour as she feared some of us may quality as exhibits in the freak show. That was her little joke, and we stood mystified as she giggled to herself.
Adult humour we thought, was just a huge mystery to us.
