Kids Say the Darndest

Posted on September 15th, 2013 by Viveca in Circus Life

Since February, I’ve been teaching circus skills to kids on the road. Sometimes they say funny things. Here are a few of my recent favorite conversations.

1.
Me (gesturing to a trunk): “Please sit down on that chair.”
Kid: “That’s not a chair.”
The kid sits down on the trunk.

Me: “Well, are you sitting on it?”
Kid: “Yes.”
Me: “And what do you sit on?”
Kid: “Snowcones!”

2.
Kid (hugging me): “I love you as tall as anyone.”

3.
Me: “What’s your name?”
Kid: “Czareena.”
Me: “Do you have a sister in circus also?”
Kid: “Yes.”
Me: “What’s her name?”
Kid: “Czarissa.”
Me: “Are you Russian princesses?”
Kid: “Yes.”
Me: “Where are you from?”
Kid: “Puerto Rico.”
Me: “So you’re real Puerto Ricans and fake Russian princesses?”
Kid: “Yes, my parents are really from there.”
Me: “Where in Puerto Rico are you from?”
Kid: “Spain!”

4.
Grown-up (not me): “What’s your favorite animal?”
Kid: “Leprechauns!”
