Tears of a Dad Clown

Good News/Bad News: I can make Miles laugh. That’s great right? I make a goofy face, his eyes go big, he opens his mouth wide as if he wants to laugh and then flashes a smile. Best feeling ever. Now the bad news: Julie can’t. She makes faces, goofs, grabs him and
tickles, but he doesn’t laugh. He likes it, but he doesn’t laugh. Well, at least she doesn’t have the burden. I make a face, he laughs. I try out some Andy Kaufman-esque new material, he doesn’t get it. So I have to go back to making the monkey face. He laughs. He laughs at his Dad clown, while I cry myself to sleep.
