A red balloon popped over my head. The shards of the latex snapped on my cheek, stinging and bringing water to my eyes. I wiped the tears away with my white gloved hands and smudged the green, blue and orange grease paint covering my face. I reminded myself this was why clowns should not cry.
Ok. This clown scares me.ReplyDelete
Gawpo..if you stand on your head and look at it, it's not so scary.ReplyDelete
Thought provoking for me...ReplyDelete
clowns are scary!ReplyDelete
I am not a fan of clowns. Swampy sent me this way, she did warn me of the clown pic. :)ReplyDelete
I always thought clowns were the saddest creatures.ReplyDelete
They are nearly half human and are stripped of the basic right to express agony, what with that big smile painted on their faces.
Haaay. This fits my mood. It's September and the Holiday Blues have started kicking in...
Having been a clown in many parades I really understand this one.ReplyDelete
Gawpo: Lots of people are afraid of clowns. I think it has something to do with big feet.ReplyDelete
Swampy: Perception is all.
Minka: I’m sorry. No more clowns.
Debs: Welcome and sorry your first visit was scary.
John: Me, too. You never know who is behind the paint and the laughter.
Dr. John: I bet it’s not easy being a clown.
I think it IS sad that his greasepaint smeared.ReplyDelete
Tsduff: And messy gloves.ReplyDelete
Me loves clowns! But me recons a saddened and smudged one would be a heartbreaking sight.ReplyDelete
Monster Man: Too true.ReplyDelete
clowns should only be seen on cookie jars. ; )ReplyDelete
Neva: I can't think of clowns without thinking of John Wayne Gacy.ReplyDelete
