Can you juggle?

Bicycling Magazine cover model, Patrick Dempsey can juggle; and so can I.

Can you?

I do OK with scarves and largish bean bags, things I can grip. My fine dexterity isn't that fast, so hard balls are a challenge for me. I'm not really good at any of it, but I manage.

5 balls while stationary, 3 balls while unicycling or slack rope walking. Met my wife in a Juggling Club in Saskatoon where we often had 10 people passing clubs in complicated patterns. Miss those days

I am soooooo discombobulated - tried it - and failed (repeat many times), however for some odd reason I can do several things with left and right hand (ampidex) - but to toss and catch, etc - f'get it.

No, but I have heard of 'cat juggling'



Plus, in my first marriage, I felt like I was juggling chainsaws.
