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! 🙂
