When A Clown Is Down

Chuckles sighed as she looked down on Baby Giggles. It had been a hard year. After finding out that Koko, that mime from Hungary, had silently knocked her up (how was she supposed to know that thing he mimed didn't mean "vasectomy?"), life took a weird turn for her. Once touted as the "queen of the trapeze," Chuckles had to give up her dream in order to have Giggles. She had his fiery red hair and penchant for sign language, but her eyes. It was worth the heartache and the sacrifice of not riding in that tiny car, but sometimes, when Giggles napped, Chuckles rued the day she became a babymama clown.
