ALMOST Wordless Wednesday- A Mime's Journey, The Color Run 2014

This is NOT sponsored, we just had some fun!
The Color Run Ventura, CA 2014
We all know I'm not good at being wordless- but, I've actually been MIA from blogging for the past week. It's an occurrence that hasn't happened once in my 5 years of blogging (even when I went on vacations!) I assure you, however, just because the new content hasn't been rolling out I HAVE been blogging. With Christmas Wishes by Blog POP! coming this week expect a lot of amazing holiday features and giveaways. I also have a pretty awesome '7 Meals In 70 Minutes' post coming up! But I digress; more amazing content coming Thursday, for now enjoy this little piece on our Color Run 2014 (Ventura, CA) experience.
The Color Run Ventura, CA 2014
Our day started normal enough, until we met a stray who had wandered upon the starting line. It seems he had mistakenly registered for the Color Run, instead of his mime convention. All the color and noise made the mime quite sad...

Luckily he had ordered some new tech-friendly gloves on Amazon Prime, and they helped him post a status on Facebook alerting his friends of the unfortunate bind. The mobile phone- the modern mime's best friend; one can still 'talk with their hands' without saying a word! And there was something about that dancing monkey emoji that just brightened his world!

As the starting line roared people of every color, pink, purple, and blue, ran by in streaks of yellow, maroon, and orange too. There was a man with an afro some 6 and a half feet tall, a family with strollers, and the friendliest unicorn of all!

Forward the mime went, searching for his friends, but everywhere he stopped to communicate people only smiled and tossed color in his face. Not knowing where he was going he followed the crowd through a cloud of Pink- around the corner, and right again, then up a hill, not knowing his journey had just began.

Palm trees on main street, such an odd sight! Down past the liquor store, tattoo parlor, and the colored dogs which gave him quite a fright! Past the Circle K, the mime began to choke on corn starch so yellow- was this all a big joke?
The Color Run Ventura, CA 2014 Purple Mime
How thirsty he was, by the time he reached Purple. This was the strangest race he'd seen, not even a hurdle. Everyone who ran by, they seemed quite happy in their tutus, rainbows, and knee high socks- but the lonely mime wondered just how many more blocks!

Finally a color that matched his mood! The pavement was painted in inches of blue! Up ahead people screamed in delight as a river of confetti was blown up and out of sight. A human kaleidoscope, indeed it was, but the lonely little mime was needing his (caffeine) buzz.

Thirsty, parched, and all alone, the sad lonely mime pulled out his phone. It was time to photobomb, a task especially designed for the modern mime's skill sets! Sad as he looked, he was tickled inside, that he could bring art to such a crazy time!

Then, down at the end, a party broke out, as people threw color into the air with a shout! Finally, as last, his friend the rave cat showed up with a can of Dr. Pepper at last! On the stage the DJ screamed to excite and this lonely mime was no longer painted white.

Thankfully the sad mime was able to Skype on his Galaxy with his friend the rainbow cat, who quickly met up with him at the after party. What? You were expecting this to be a little more poetic and rhyme?

    1. It's even more fun when you dress up- Everyone loved the face painting because it really caught the color- and we found we could actually clean the color off our face much easier with the white face paint layer between the color and our skin!
