Ignoring the shininess of my ass there, I need you to know that I CAN CLIMB A ROPE 15 feet off the ground and do, like, dangerous stuff.
I most definitely was not supposed to let go, but you know what? I DID ANYWAY, FOR I AM UNRULY.
IT IS THE FUNNEST THING EVAR.
That thingy up there is called the Spanish Web, and you climb it and then wrap yourself up in it and spin around. Reminds me a bit of my babywearing days, actually.
And that's the actual trapeze. Yeah, it's only 5 feet off the ground. But I still had an awesome time being D-easy D on the Trapezey. Or something. Whatever they called me on Facebook.
If you're in the Atlanta area and love adventure and playing around, please check out the Circus Arts Institute. Wonderful people, cool facility, amazing teachers, and the most fun I think I've ever had for $21, because horses cost a lot of money.
I'm not sure how much the actual classes cost, since I bought my class using Living Social Deals, one of those "send me an email every day with a huge sale on something, and one day I might actually buy one if it involves sharks".
They also had some cool music playing by Caravan Palace, and now WE WANTS IT.
Here's a video by them. It's like Moulin Rouge on Red Bull and vodka with a clown doing the Charleston in back.
And now, if you'll pardon me, I'm going to finish this tea and go dream about running away to the circus.
Beaux reves, mes amis!
