A while ago I posted about my plans to celebrate my 50th birthday, and about my Best Buddy Superfriend Par Excellence Silke's plans to come out and celebrate it with me. Well, she did, and we did and here are the pictures to prove it.
All I have to say in retrospect is this: These photos don't come anywhere close to conveying the awesome coolness of what we did. Also the awesome difficulty and pain. I cannot adequately express the respect I now have for circus performers. I don't think I was able to move my upper body for a week. Silke said she could, a little, but I know she was lying.
Also: Yes, Silke does look like she is having the time of her life here (she is) while I look like I am badly in need of sleep (I was.) This is because Silke was doing Circus School while on vacation away from her family, while I was just doing Circus School.
