“My Parents took me and my little sister to the circus every year. I liked the trapeze artists the best, ‘The Flying Lawendas’ or whatever they were called, not the death-defying stuff—the mid-air quadruple flips and near misses…I covered my eyes for that. What I liked was the part at the end when they bounced into the net and jumped up with that big Wallinda smile, the ‘Ta-Dah’ part—‘Ta-Dah’…I loved that. It meant ‘I’m safe’.”—George, Dead Like Me
