OK… Lets be real for a second. I am terrible at remembering to do this blog. I will do the topics, just not a daily thing like I had planned. I apologize for the hiccups. I am in a couple of writing workshops that are taking more of my energy than I planned. Add to that my novel is progressing nicely, and the chaos that is my life… And I end up with a blog that does not get updates as often as I want it to.
So topic of today is clowns. Now I have been a clown. In parades, and store openings, as my family did own a radio station. My grandma did the grand openings in costumes and I went along as a clown. It was incredibly hot, and I grew to hate that costume. In general I think clowns are creepy, and thanks to Tim Curry in It I have been quite afraid of them for years. Still, having just tonight I found myself wanting to see the remake in the theater.
What is the part about clowns that causes fear in so many? I am not sure. I think that it is the creepy forced smile that is painted on so many of them. Are you afraid of clowns? If so, why?
