|The Kids could battle with a Troll.|
It looked like a real fight, with hard sword swings. They also did a mock battle.
The commentary was all in Danish, so we didn't really know what was going on, but it was fun to watch. They nearly ran us over in the beginning.
They had women doing tricks with fire. I was a little worried about this. We were sitting right in the front and they were flipping around these burning sticks and a couple of times they fumbled them. I was worried they would drop them on us, but luckily, no one was injured.
I just felt bad for the guy they pulled out of the audience and proceeded to singe his chest hair. They also had some “jesters” doing acrobatics and juggling.
At one point they asked for a volunteer from the audience. The kids were sitting in front of us and Myra was just about wetting her pants trying to get them to pick her. But all her hopes were dashed when he stepped passed her and pulled ME! out of the audience! I have always really detested being singled out for things such as this. Even as a kid, I would never volunteer. I just always feels silly and awkward up in front of people like that. But, I figured I had 2 choices, I could feel silly and awkward or I could just embrace the moment and try to put on a good show for the kids, especially Myra who was physically shoving me forward onto the field. Luckily I didn’t have to do anything embarrassing. The jester tricked me into giving him a neck massage and then picked me up and flipped me around.
When my part was done, he reached in and kissed me on the cheek! Not the most pleasant of experiences considering he was drenched in sweat and I had to seriously wipe it off the side of my fast. Ick! Myra was so ecstatic about my “performance” though and just about knocked me down once I got back into the audience.
|I love the look on her face. You can see how excited she was.|
They even battled each other with swords on horseback.
