I was driving Lily upstate yesterday to her grandmother's house. We passed the a mall, on whose property the Big Apple Circus had plunked its giant big top and all the horrors that accompany it.
I hate the circus.
I'm not going to go into vivid detail with my 4 year old daughter about why I don't plan on taking her to one of these festivals of pain and suffering (though Big Apple is rumored to be one of the more humane ones), but as we drove by I did mention that I wasn't a big fan of circuses in general.
And from the back seat, she asked,
"Why, Mommy? Too much clowns?"
Happy Illegal Fireworks Day!
