Circus Miserables

My trip is two days old and already I’ve seen some new things, things I didn’t know or didn’t notice until just now.

My mother and I hate circuses. I actually knew this, but I had forgotten. There is a tiny circus set up in an empty field near her house.

The other thing I’ve noticed is that we seem to share a brain. Every time she makes a wry comment, I’m either already making the same comment or I’m making a corollary one. The scary thing about that is that Wa and I share a brain. Which leads me to the idea that maybe I don’t have a brain of my own. Maybe I’m just a composite of Wa and my Mom. If that’s so, I should go on a quest to find my real self. Maybe I should run off, and join the circus.

Maybe not.
