Mimes … How Do They Do It?

I got the idea for this post from looking again at the image of the mimes. Hence the title…Meaning the mimes! They were featured in the post “April is National Humor Month” and as always it got me thinking. Because I confess I am never at a loss for thoughts…But that can be a good thing, right? I am never, well hardly ever at a loss for words. But those mimes, how do they do it? Not uttering a word, trying to convey a message. Well, they do make it look easy I must say. Very interesting they are, as well as entertaining, too. But not uttering a word, that alone would just drive me crazy. I’m not kidding either, I just couldn’t do it! Could any of you kind readers? Come on, think about it, not one word! Silence is the key with this mime business.

I am sincerely honest in saying, I do not do charades…For obvious reasons. 😉 How about you kind readers, anybody simply excelling at charades? If so, please do share because I just can’t maintain the silence. I do have to report, Autumn is very much the same…Oh, what a surprise, right? 🙂

The Twinnies are so not into being quiet…The stories I could tell about us in church as younger Twinnies! I am serious, just picture us whispering back and forth and oops by mistake starting to laugh. Made our parents ever so proud of Autumn and me both for sure! 😉

But, back to these mimes…They can’t speak. It’s not allowed in the mime world. I think they just might have a handbook they need to follow, what do you all think? 😉 But what if somebody says something funny to them? They can’t laugh…How awful for them! Somebody could try their hardest to make them talk, but the mime rules don’t allow it. I guess it would be enough to make them get fired…Well, then they could talk all they wanted! Without a job that is…Their talking would be a lot of complaining. Or telling off the person who caused them to speak, why not? They sure could be making up for lost time and get it all said!

Like I said, I was just thinking about all this mime stuff and just cracking myself up. I am so very easily entertained, what can I say? Autumn was laughing herself silly right along with me when thinking about finding some mimes. It really would be kind of fun to try to get them to talk, don’t you think? 😉 I am kidding, we wouldn’t do it because it really would be so not kind and rather thoughtless. But, the thoughts of it all are amusing! 🙂

All of these thoughts and pondering about mimes…Well, I do admire them I must say. Would I ever make it as a mime, would Autumn…Heck no! But would any of you kind readers? Think about it and please do share your thoughts on my latest off beat pondering and wonderings. Just think about the mimes…Surely you kind readers have something you would like to share! Go ahead, you are among friends! 🙂

  1. You know, Mimes used to freak me out because they remind me of clowns…you know like the same one from that horror movie “IT”. I think I’m over the mime fear though…but clowns always seem sinister to me…oh sorry I digress lol. I think they are amazing now that I appreciate the art of it all. They are genius in their performances. We even have some in our church so it’s really interesting how over time they’ve evolved. I think when I saw the Twin male mimes call the K&K Mimes…I fell in love with what they did one because they’re twins and two…well they look good at what they do.

    lovely post today Twinnie. *hugs*
    Sherline 😀

    • I am so happy to hear you are over your Mime fear Sherline! 🙂 OMG, you just better not watch another horror movie and I mean it, I seriously can’t watch them and you have kind of a clown fear….So no more of those awful movies for you Twinnie Friend! I loved how you said the art of it all is genius, it really is! 🙂 I liked hearing about them in your church, that is awesome. Wow twin mimes, how cool is that? Well, since we are a part of the “twinship” we will always love twins and the two thing. Thank you so much for the kind words about this post and the great comment and most of all *Hugs*! Sending Twinnie *Hugs* right back to you, thanks for making me smile cause today was just not a good day for this twinnie. Tomorrow will be better, I have been praying on that one Very Hard! Gabby 🙂

  2. :lol:Gabby you are a genius..Your posts are so amazing and fun to read…. 🙂
    I don’t think i will ever be able too mime…cos
    a) I always have a lot to say
    b) the moment i will see the other person acting out with that painted face i will start laughing..and then it will be a no show..
    It must be really difficult..this one time a group came over to our school and the kids laughed so hard that they stopped it in the middle( cos their act was about taking care of nature)
    teachers were disappointed in us but seriously we were kids and they were looking funny

    wish you a super fun day 🙂
    hugs n love 🙂

    • I am glad to hear you liked this post Soma…I try to make them fun and interesting to read. Thank you for your support at my ramblings! 🙂 The things and thoughts that pop into my mind, not genius (lol) more like silly and a bit wacky most of the time! I just had a feeling you could never be a mime either…We just like to talk too much, right? You did have me smiling about your laughing and also the school group. We just can’t help what tends to tickle our funny bone especially when we’re kids! 🙂 Wishing you also a most super fun day, Hugs n Love back to you! 🙂

  3. Interesting point. But it does take a lot of effort to convey a message by using one’s facial expression. That must surely enhance one’s ability to communicate visually and also understand other people’s thoughts too!

    • Thank you so much for reading and also your thoughts on this subject of mimes. I agree they are very talented indeed, conveying messages through facial expressions and all. 🙂

    • That is not sounding too unusual Marvin, a lot of people don’t like clowns it seems. That is good you like mimes and Wow… clowns who are mimes! I have never been to Cirque de Soleil, hope to get there someday though. 🙂 Thanks for stopping in and I sure appreciate it. I want to get over to your blog very soon. I’ve been missing your writing, it’s been so busy lately but I will make time! Take care and hope all is well with you. 🙂 Gabby
