As a kid, I loved the circus, especially when the clown circus workshops. Unlike a lot of kids, I wasn’t afraid of clowns: I thought they were hilarious. Call me old fashioned, but I wanted to be one.
One year, my parents let me enroll in the clown workshop. The friendly lead clown, named Boffo, helped me pick out a funny outfit, applied makeup on my face, picked out a wig for me to wear, and gave me a red clown nose. I, however, picked the name: Laugho!
They gave me a quick rundown on basic clown humor styles, and soon I was clowning down! My parents laughed at my antics, and Boffo smiled in approval. I even got some of the passing kids to laugh, and start begging their parents to let them be a clown.
Although I never clowned again, I still think back fondly on that day.
None of Greg’s friends would accompany him to the new mall, citing his weird hobby as their reason for refusal.
So Greg went alone, which was better anyway. He started on the east end of the mall, and worked his way west, stopping at each and every store. Then he went up the escalator and worked his way from west to east on the upper level, again stopping at each and every store.
When he had visited every place of business, he settled himself at a table in the food court and sorted into alphabetical order the business cards he had collected from each store. His goal was to have one for each letter of the alphabet. But the mall had failed him. It didn’t have shops starting with “K” or “Q” or “Y.” He sighed. Would he ever get the whole alphabet in one visit to one mall?
