I am definitely not a trapeze performer. I possess neither athletic skill nor star quality.
I can’t be an animal handler. I am not assertive enough to control beasts.
I am a clown. Not a good one since I can not juggle or mime. I do, however, put a mask on and try my best to make people and myself laugh. Especially, when the going gets tough.
My husband always said that there is no comedy without victims. He also said that being able to laugh at yourself is a great gift. He admired real clowns.
