A ballon and me
A balloon (left) and me (right) today.

I met Carolyn for coffee this lunchtime. She turned up with a belated birthday present for yours truly: a helium-filled balloon. She had brought it to work with her on the train. She made me walk through the streets of Liverpool, trailing it behind me. Carolyn said people were laughing at me behind my back.

I got some funny looks in Starbucks, but I'm used to that.

It's the thought that counts.

  1. The acid test would be to attach some selotape (sp?) to each, then yank it off (the tape). One will scream the other will explode.
    Question is, will that clear things up?
