This month’s Book group book

I don’t know about you, but I’m enjoying the heck out of the April Cafe Parlez selection, “Water for Elephants”.  I’m particularly interested in the circus lingo, and wondered what they meant when they refer to Jacob as a “First of May”, early on in his career with the circus.  I went to a website that has a Circus Lingo Dictionary, http://www.goodmagic.com/carny/c_a.htm . According to them, the circus season starts the first of May, so that’s when any circus might pick up a new worker.  Try that website for more definitions.
