One of my coworker nurses hired me, the clown, for a birthday party next Saturday, and after telling her I didn't really do face painting and observing the pleading look on her face, I told her I'd give it my best shot. I have 8 tubes of Mehron fantasy F-X that I've had for a while. I'm going to order some stuff from La Rock's Monday as well as a few more balloons. The party is for a 4 year old, and there will be 20 or so little darlings. I figure it's a great place to learn. I've been watching and reading lots as well as practicing on my grand daughter. I'm expecting a fun day. I really appreciate this forum. There is such a wealth of experience in so many areas. Steve P.S. I can't think of any corny jokes at the moment, but I'm sure one will come to me.
