Clowns Not Welcome Here


Halloween is coming. As we all very well know. But I’m just giving fair warning for anyone even considering trick or treating at my house.


None. I don’t care if your clown is happy or sad. If he’s scary or friendly. He’s creepy to me.

Bottom line. Get him away from me.

Creepier than creepy. Like the creepiest thing ever. No, I’ve never watched the original IT movie. Never will.

Don’t come to my house looking like that. Don’t bring anything to my house that even looks like a clown.

If someone even thinks about giving my daughter a clown doll, I will kill it.

With fire … and bury it (not in my backyard, I don’t want it any where near me) underground away from me.

I’m serious, y’all.

Creepy movies are just not my thing. I’m the person that closes her eyes even when the trailers come on. I think it goes back to third grade. I don’t know who let me watch Dracula at 8 years old, but they’re who I hold responsible for my hatred of scary and creepy movies. No lie ~ I slept with my light on in my bedroom for a week. Well I wouldn’t say slept because I swear I never closed my eyes for the fear I would get bit by some black and white Dracula I saw on TV.

So the new previews of IT have been showing on TV lately, and I’m ready to cancel my cable till its gone. My boyfriend finds this very funny, and I’ve already informed him that any “surprises” he might have planned that involve any type of clown face better be thought long and hard about. Because we’ll be sleeping with the light on in our bedroom for at least a week.

Or at least I will. He’ll be on the couch …
