Non-flammable? Challenge accepted.. I suck at writing these things, but necessary evil something something. Been spinning for 15-ish years, across many skills. My main focus has been on various staffs, and using my face... breathing/eating. I have taught contact staff off an on over the years and have presented classes at circus retreats. And now an AI generated short story to make my bio look less anemic... Once upon a time, there was a purple monkey named Dishwasher. Dishwasher lived in a circus and was responsible for washing all of the dishes used by the performers and staff. He was a hard worker and always took pride in his job, even though it wasn't glamorous. One day, the circus was preparing for a big performance and Dishwasher was busier than ever before. As he was washing dishes, he overheard the ringmaster talking about a new act that they were going to perform. It involved a daring high-wire act, and the ringmaster was worried that they didn't have the right monkey to perform it. Dishwasher had always been fascinated by the high-wire acts and knew that he had to try it out. So, he snuck away from his dishwashing duties and began to practice the high-wire act. He quickly found that he had a natural talent for it, and before long, he was performing the high-wire act flawlessly. The circus was a huge success and Dishwasher became the star of the show. He was no longer just the humble dishwasher, but a talented high-wire artist. He continued to wash dishes when he wasn't performing, but now he did it with a smile on his face knowing that he had a special talent to share with the world. From then on, Dishwasher's dream of being on the stage and entertaining people came true, proving that anyone can reach their dream if they work hard and never give up.
