One-Liner Wednesday – Clownin’ Around


Alex has been terrified of clowns forever. But he dressed up for one to go into the Santa Claus parade! Then he got home and saw himself in the mirror …

Photo: Alex, in clown makeup and costume, screaming at his reflection in the bathroom mirror. I think he actually scared himself when he first looked.

As with Stream of Consciousness Saturday (SoCS), if you see a pingback from someone else in my comment section, click and have a read. It’s bound to be short and sweet.

Unlike SoCS, this is not a prompt so there’s no need to stick to the same “theme.”

The rules that I’ve made for myself (but don’t always follow) for “One-Liner Wednesday” are:

1. Make it one sentence.

2. Try to make it either funny or inspirational.

3. Use our unique tag #1linerWeds.

4. Add our lovely badge to your post for extra exposure!

5. Have fun!

  1. Good for Alex for dressing up as and facing his fear! When my daughter was a child, she was terrified of clowns or someone in a big animal suit. She missed at least one friend’s birthday party. I remember her shaking as she clung to me. We still tend to avoid clowns.
