Ooooh! Aaaaah!

Ok so, I'm really no master at balloonery.

Although, I may or may not be in love with the word balloonery and just might have to become a master of balloonery so I can tell people that I am... and thus have infinitely more opportunities to use the word balloonery than I do now.

But anyway, MB (Master of Balloonery) or not, I don't think I've ever owned a balloon that lasted as long as these amazing, incredible, astounding Valentine's Day mylar balloons have! So even if it's completely normal for this kind of balloon to last this long, I've never had a longer lasting balloon, so therefore I can be totally amazed! Woot!

I mean, I was impressed yesterday (Sunday) when I woke up and they were still afloat and I realized that it had been exactly two weeks since Valentine's Day...

BUT THEN I realized that Dallin had given me these amazing, incredible, astounding Valentine's Day mylar balloons the day BEFORE Valentine's Day, and my mind was officially blown.

I mean, they're not even dwindling. They dwindle not.

I told Dallin he should have done one of those "I'll love you until the last one dies" kind of thing.

(In case you have no idea what I'm talking about...person gives sweetheart flowers with note saying "I'll love you until the last one dies." Sketchy...until you find out one of the flowers is fake. It's supposed to be cute or something.)

But then we had this whole discussion about how if the flower is fake, it couldn't really "die" anyway, because it was never really "alive," so it might not count, depending on how stingy and unromantic you want to be.

So Dallin said he'd love me a century for every day the balloons were still afloat. I took it, but I'm kind of regretting it now...because since we're going to be together for eternity, well... eternity divided by 100 years is still eternity (one of those weird math things), so either my balloons are amazing, incredible, astounding, ETERNAL balloons or...

it'll be a really long eternity after the first 2000 years.

Maybe I need to get me a helium tank.


  1. This is the point when I start using the balloons as punching bags. There is something so satisfying about the sound it makes when you give 'em a good whack.

  2. I had a teacher get one with an award and we watched it as a class stay afloat for 4 mos. No kidding! Enjoy!


Your turn.
