Uplifted

Post by Scattercat » Fri May 04, 2012 9:52 am

The clown gamboled through the park, trailing balloons and streamers. "Joy!" he cried out. "Elation!"

"What do you mean?" I asked.

"I give the gift of levity," he told me. "Say the word, and you will fly as high as my balloons."

I considered my bare pockets and the cold and empty apartment that awaited me. "Sure," I said. As soon as the words left my mouth, my stomach lurched and I began to float away.

"How do I get down again?" I called to the rapidly receding clown.

His eyes glinted beneath his makeup. "Perhaps you misunderstood the offer."

You try and try to warn people about clowns but they never listen, do they SC?
