A colleague called and informed me that the circus was in town. “Weren’t they here earlier this year?” “Oh,” he replied, “That was Ringling Brothers. I am talking about the circus on my job.” They are putting on an unforgettable show this week and it’s free! Their three ring circus has an incredible juggler, a speeding motorcyclist who keeps circling around the same path, and the funniest clown. All three are exceptionally talented at their craft. The major difference is that they double as employees. They juggle job duties, circle around issues, and do the funniest, craziest things that will make you crack up in laughter. They do this for a living and get handsomely paid weekly. I am told that the company is giving them all hefty bonuses. One will get one of those fancy & expensive Apple computers; the other, the new wristband cellular phone; and the grand bonus will be a new fancy sedan car with all the bells and whistles. My colleague is thinking about joining his company’s circus next year. They take applications in January. Why work for a living…when you can just clown around?
