So am I! An aunt made me one once to put on my bed - all VERY long slim legs and arms and I kept having nightmares that it was curling its way around my body whilst I slept (think boa constrictor)

I think King homed in and honed sharp this common fear - someone who is meant to be benign and happy but is dangerous (sorta like a modern day Roman Catholic priest)


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I knew someone once who had a "Can't sleep, clowns will get me" T-shirt.

How horrifying, I had no idea but this looks like the costume of a clown doll I received once. My sister got one too and we destroyed them.

But I musn't forget I did once make a Harlequin Halloween costume for my son and worked on it for months. He was so cute in it. The costume was mostly yellow a color I feel good about.

I had some clown pajamas for the youngest daughter and she wouldn't wear them.
I do like yellow also. It fee..."


Yes, he is awful to look at. I can hardly bear to do so. In that case it must be something genetic to somehow protect us. To me yellow is the color of happiness.

Why is jinx in your handle now?
