I got an idea! I gotta tell you… I gotta! I gotta! I gotta! Here’s the story.
It was a late October Thursday. I was sitting in our family room, indolently kicking away my toddler, who was demanding attention. She wanted candy, it was 8 a.m., and I wasn’t about to share my Tootsie Roll. Nor my bacon. Nor my attention. The toddler was crying, hitting the hardwood floor: “My candy!!! My bacon!!! My papa!!!”. I was reading Madame Weebles invites you to tea. My toddler had no chance. Eventually, she stopped and walked away, whispering: “My vengeance!!! My vengeance!!!”.
Madame Weebles was about to invite her readers to tea… Out the window went my Session on the Couch With Le Clown idea. Weebles called dibs. Good for you, asswipe. Back to the drawing board.There was a murmur coming out of my daughter’s room, barely audible: “Kill the Clown!!!”, conflicting with my inner thoughts: “Kill the Weebles!!!”. I was gazing at my Star Wars: A New Hope poster, signed by David Prowse, my go-to place to calm down. “The Force runs strong in my family™“, I thought. The midi-chlorians added their own voice to the conversation [note from the author: Le Clown does not suffer from dissociative identity disorder]:
“Le Clown, you should ask bloggers to send you 5 pictures depicting a week in their lives, and write a story and/or captions around these pictures. You should then ask these bloggers to send you what those pictures really depict.“
I got an idea! I gotta tell you… I gotta! I gotta! I gotta! That’s the story! I will ask one of you to send me 5 pictures about your life, and we will make fun of your life for our reading pleasure! Want to play?
