When I was working on the word CIRCUS, my dearest and oldest childhood friend DeDe came to mind. After high school she ran off and joined the circus and rode bareback doing a hand stand...... hmmmm. You know, I never actually SAW her do this, and one thing I know for sure, she was the wimpiest, least athletic person I knew. She spent every p.e. class in the nurses office (you know the type) So I found this circus story a little hard to believe. Ok, yes, here she is in a circusy type costume, but that doesn't really prove anything. So this drawing is how I imagined DeDe would look trying to ride a circus horse bareback!
