Freddie immediately regretted running away and joining the circus the moment he reached the top of the ladder. While up there he thought of the wife and kids he left, his boring 9-5 job he quit and wondered what the heck he was thinking! did he jump in the end? no. he had a heart attack and fell! The moral to the story? if u climb to the top of the ladder your gonna come down one way or another..... or something like that.
But oh boy! That was a great night at the circus!!
