    Yikes! Clowns are scary enough without hanging out in cemeteries!

    At least you were just visiting the grave – it would have been a whole lot worse if your mom wore that costume to a funeral. Had she maybe just come from doing a party or something?

    It’s a vase! I was just about to ask why there was a breathing tube sticking out of the gravestone when I realized it’s a vase. Never mind.

      That’s my mom, she was a semi-professional clown. I have no idea why on earth she was dressed like a clown at the cemetery…hence the awkwardness.
