Two of my greatest fears are not having something to blog about on Fridays and clowns. Since I didn't have anything to blog about...I decided to combine the two. You're welcome.
I don't think I was always afraid of clowns. I can't say that I ever really understood them. As a child, I'd been to parades and the circus but I never thought they were funny. Their mirth seemed forced to me--I guess I was hard to impress.
Clowns made me uneasy--but they didn't fill me with dread.
It was Stephen King that ruined me.
I wasn't even a child when the book, It, came out-- and twenty when they made it into a mini-series. But I've never recovered. Even Ronald McDonald is suspect now.
So....how do you weigh in on clowns? Do you like them? Do you...gulp....collect them? Do you have that oil painting of that sad clown with the droopy flower in your home? Have you ever danced with the devil by the pale moonlight?
Or are you like me? A victim of Coulrophobia...the fear of clowns?
