The Boy in Girl's Clothes and the Sleepy Lions

One summer when I was a teenager in the late 1960’s, a friend and I walked up to a carnival beginning to set up for a week in town and asked if we could help in any way. Without much ado, we started unloading big trucks with heavy pieces of carnival rides, helping the regular carnival men. We didn’t need to fill out any paperwork for the job, and I don't even think that they asked us what our names were.

After getting all of the rides and side shows set up, my friend and I worked at the Carnival every day doing whatever they needed done. By Thursday of that week, my friend heard a rumor from one of the side-show people that the owner of the carnival was not going to pay us after a week of working long hours, but was planning on getting out of town without paying us. Instead of waiting until morning and our return to help tear the carnival down and then get paid, they were going to pack up and be gone as soon as they closed for the night.

My friend’s father got the Somerset District Attorney to go with us on the last day of the carnival and instead of working that last day, we were paid cash and went on our way. I was so na├»ve that if it hadn’t been for my buddy and his savvy father, my week with the carnival would have been a disaster story instead of an adventure.

In this circus adventure from thirty years before my short adventure, a young boy is exposed to a traveling circus, eventually ending up dressed as a young girl and becoming the laughing-stock of the circus, in the center ring. All of this while his parents are waiting for him at summer camp, wondering what has happened to their young son. Pop a big bowl of popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
