I was a terrible mime. Because I could only be quiet for so long before I’d start making sarcastic remarks to the audience about how bad I was. And seriously, what was I miming in this photo? “Oh my god this boulder is so heavy” or “Go ahead and throw me the fish, I’ll catch it in my mouth” or “My fingers are soooooooooo sticky.”
