22 Feb : Skillz


MrsM is eager to learn as much as possible about Geology now that she is working in the Department so she points to the long rod that the student is holding and asks what it is. MrsM imagines that it is something to clean rock surfaces.

The student explains it is a juggling stick. Because he runs courses on circus skills. His speciality is juggling with fire. Would MrsM be interested in a session or two? 

MrsM regretfully declines the kind offer...life is busy enough without setting fire to one's hair...but it is nice to be asked.

  2. Modern life No. 336: Student debt. I might have accepted, even my eyelashes grew back when I singed them on a Bunsen burner c. 1972. But, on the other hand, my daughter used to go to a drama club where circus skills were taught and frankly it was terrifying, so probably wise to decline.

    1. How lovely to think of resolving issues of student debt by running away with the circus. It is Enid Blyton for the modern era.

    1. He doesn't look too distressed. Perhaps those knickers are fire retardant.
