It Wasn’t Anything She Said
Why does the world hate mimes?
There are 52 unique muscles in the human face and she was using every one of them that spring afternoon to convey all the emotions she could with out her voice. As the crowd streamed around her she practiced her craft mimicking, teasing have playing with the people passing by. A few stopped and watched and drew delight in the ones that didn’t stop, just walked along. Those were the ones she performed with, imitating, following, using a comic foil for her act. A few would notice, and turn and she would instantly switch to something else so they never had any idea what went on.
I watched for a while, and took her photo as she performed. I thought she didn’t see me, but in the end she did, and even posed for me.
I don’t know why people hate mimes….
