Just one clown?
Went to the circus today. I haven't been to a circus in fifty years. Yes, it was a disappointment. It was inside, no big tent and the smell of hay and wild animals. Maybe that was a good thing considering the outside temps and humidity.
There was a lot of dancing. I mean a lot of dancing. An acrobat would perform a semi daring move and then spend minutes dancing with his fellow acrobats. Then another move followed by more dancing.
And the ring leader sang. It was more of a Broadway show than a circus. There were elephants but no lions, tightrope walkers but no aerialist, 10 dollar cotton candy and 12 dollar sno-cones.
And one clown, who didn't look like a clown, who secretly wanted to be a super hero.
