Ever since I was a little kid, I have loved clowns. My mom and I used to collect them. I had porcelain clowns, stuffed clowns, stand up clowns, and even a blanket that was a clown. Then I read the book "IT."

I admit it, it scared the crap out of me. I started giving away all my clown stuff because I was a little scared.

But after I gave all my clown stuff away and kept only a few, I was mad because the reality is, I really like clowns.

They are not all like "IT."

I was at the Central Washington State Fair the other day and ran into two really fun and amazing clowns. Those kinds of clowns are starting to give clowns a better name.
