Fear of clowns  rationally EXPLAINED!… by Fionn Aged 13. 

COULROPHOBIA

there is even a real word for it!

Clowns scare the heck out of me.

Its because their big painted smiles are all weird

when they are frowning they are still smiling

smiling with their mouth and the rest of their faces are normal!

That means i can’t read their faces

so i don’t trust them!

YESTERDAY THE CLOWN DOCTORS WERE VISITING OUR WARD

i was not excited…i was nervous.

the last time i saw them i was in Musgrave Park Hospital

and i was really scared when they came close!

Yesterday – a man waved at the door, and i waved back…

oops…i realised who it was and i said “Oh Christ!”

they kinda knew i was nervous, and we talked about it..so they kept at the door first -THANKFULLY!

okay this picture mum took, shows that i wasn’t THAT comfortable with it

plus i thought it would be a bit babyish

but they had jokes and a bit of craic for my age too!

dad took this pic.

the guy on the ground with the bald head was really funny.

he had a sense of humour like me.

he was an even bigger Doctor Who freak than me!

SHOCKER!

Their faces weren’t painted so i got a wee bit more relaxed.

I even started telling them a few cool jokes!.

one guy wasn’t really my type of funny so when he tried a joke i managed to keep a straght face

cos i couldnt really pretend i got him.

BUT

the other fella GOT ME

he made me really LAUGH!

gradually it actually was really fun

real cheesy humour but fun.

and by the time they were leaving,

i wanted them to stay!

we even tried to cool up the one who wasn’t so funny:)
