Compare big top.

    Hey, I never thought about the difference between carnival and circus either. Cristate is a new word to me too. Glad to meet another word junkie. I’ll have to check back each week. Can’t wait till you get to ‘I’! 🙂

    Me too! I am a word addict. I’m glad you learned a new one. That’s awesome! Have a great weekend. 🙂

    Thanks! Why “I”? Is it harder or more fun. I don’t think it will be harder, now “X” will be for sure. I may have to cheat on that one and look them up instead of what comes off the top of my head. We’ll see! Have a great weekend! 🙂
