We saw a clown! Now it’s nightmare time!

Posted by admin on May 19th, 2013 filed in Carnival, General, What?!

We went to a clown performance today. It was kind of by accident, since it happened as we were eating lunch in a pavilion and the show started after we’d sat down. The kids seemed excited, so I was like, “How bad could it be?” Maybe this clown wouldn’t be creepy and would redeem all clowns for me. He had hot air balloons on his vest. Harmless!

Before I explain any further, I’d like to say he had a good show. The tricks were good, he could juggle, the audience liked his jokes. The only problem at all was… the inappropriately placed balloon. I kept looking, but it was there every time! I glanced around at other people in the audience. They were laughing and clapping, not sporting wtf? expressions that indicated they too saw the inappropriately placed balloon. I took a picture just to make sure I wasn’t imagining the unfortunate position of this balloon. At the end, he had an empty bag that several kids verified contained nothing. Then he pulled a three foot yellow balloon out of the “bag” but by “bag” I mean “pants.” Yep, that didn’t help.

So I feel kind of bad blogging about this. It takes guts to follow your passion, make a routine, and get up in front of people to perform as a clown. A lot of bravery and dedication. But I guess part of putting yourself out there is risking that someone will be amused by your inappropriately placed balloon and take a picture. I’ll try to crop the face out of the picture.

I mean, this is really obvious, right? I know you laughed too.
