I dressed up in my Clown attire adorned by my red wig and carefully made up face with a sparkle on the tip of my nose, for Calvin’s first birthday party. When I knocked on the door, I was a little nervous waiting for Annabell to open the door (wondering if she would be surprised/know it was MsMillie?), but she checked me out from head to toe, and then said in her cute grown up voice “it’s Calvin first birthday, come on in.”
I handed Annabell a gift bag with Calvin’s present and a smaller bag with coloring book and toy purse and mirror for her. She gave me one of her special hugs and a big thank you and then said “I think I know who you are!”
I smiled my biggest clown smile but I still didn’t speak as Annabell continued studying me and all of my moves. She was amused at my sipping a drink from a straw that her Mom had given me. How come you don’t talk? Are you afraid to mess up your lips? As I gave out some stickers to her and the other little guests, they too stared and smiled. The sticker read “I met a clown today”.
Finally, the food was ready (ribs and chicken wings and legs, salad and a beautiful rice platter) that I had to admit “Sparkles” was hungry. I carefully removed my wig and clown shoes and placed them on the chair when I heard “Ms Millie, you fooled me from Annabell’s voice” You look so nice and cute with your wig and shoes, could you put everything back on after you eat? Hmm, maybe I will, we’ll see. For now this clown is hungry and the food looks yummy. More fun later.
