Juggling till I die.
I have been juggling since 1977. It was the perfect college activity to do between classes. I kept juggling year after year, only to find that I was getting older and older and the average age of jugglers was still 22-25. So here I am, still juggling at 46, still loving it, but not feeling a lot of other people my age to bond with. I meet a few jugglers my age (and older) at juggling festivals but still we are maybe in the 5 percentile. Why do people stop juggling? Do we get of an age where it just makes us feel too silly? Is it just not socially acceptable to be throwing your lunch around? Hmmm.
