I don't like the circus. Not the animals or the acrobats and especially not the clowns. My littlest sister wanted to visit now that it came to Anaheim and I explained why I wasn't going. It is is interesting to see how a young girl of 8 understood and respected my decision to not go while my dad of 40-something did not. I am allowed to be my own person with dislikes and anyone who cares about me should respect them.
