Saturday night the hubs took me on date night to Cirque du Soleil. This was my big Christmas present - floor seats!
Having never seen anything like this, I was really impressed. As I told Ross, the act that most knocked my socks off was the ribbon dancer-hanging lady. How did she do that? Some of the other acts I could kind of wrap my head around like "oh you'd have to have crazy good balance" or "its kinda like cheerleading pyramids on crack." But that one...I just don't know where you even begin. How do you train for that? What makes you wake up one morning and think "I'm going to hang from the ceiling by a ribbon-sheet thing today"?
Just. Plain. Cool.
I can't really do it justice in words so I won't try. Here's a video instead.
