It's show-and-tell time at Olivia's school and she's telling her class about the time she went to the circus and all the performers were sick... so Olivia had to do everything. She tamed the lions, balanced on stilts, juggled and even played the clown. 'Was that true?' Olivia's teacher asks. 'Quite true,' says Olivia. 'Are you sure Olivia?' 'To the best of my recollection,' she says.
