Have you ever seen those old carnival performers that spin plates on poles?
To be awesome at this trick, you must:
Spin a plate fast and place it on the end of a pole.
Keep it spinningAdd more plates on poles.
Keep all plates spinning: the more plates spinning the better
Oh no! Plate one begins to wobble.
That’s ok. You to the rescue!
You run back and give plate one a quick spin.
You dash to the other side and add more plates at the end of the line.
Eventually, you have magically started 20 plates spinning.
You are happily burning off that extra serving of Thundercake you snuck after the kids went to bed last night. You’ve got this!
Everything is okie-dokie until plates 2, 7, 11, and 20 start wobbling at the same time.
Your job is to keep every plate spinning.
You dart back and forth spinning plates.
You begin to sweat.
Not the pretty little shine on your face that “makes you” glow kind of sweat, but waterfalls of stinky sweat rolling down your back and armpits-sticking-together kind of sweat.
