A Thought Bubble.

Here's What I'm Thinkin':

The party...




...was in April.



Why aren't we building airplanes out of these things?



Thank you
to Mad Texter for this tasty award!


And thank you to Amy Jo at The Hopelessly Lame-Named Blog for this beauty!

I suppose shooting them is out of the question?

Can we attach kids to those? I'd LOVE to hang the boys from the ceiling some days...LOL

I like your wood floors ; -)

sweet! slingshot target practice.

Vodka Mom said...

next thing you know you're gonna tell me that airplanes are STUFFED with them.

I have a neighbor I'd like to attach to one of those. ~Mary

Absolutely BRILLIANT!!

Swirl Girl said...

What goes up must come down...eventually.

Ann's Rants said...

Yep, those bastards will stick around until you open up a can of whoop-ass on them

(when the kids are sleeping of course)

blognut said...

Good point. Those damn things never come down, do they?

liggybee said...

You always know how to look at the fun side of things...

Madtexter said...

Your pictures say a billion words. You have a fantastical way of putting into story some of the things we've all experienced, but never knew how valuable (read: funny) it was until someone like you puts it into a twisted perspective.

Now, that is refreshing!

If you keep it up, we'll need a 12-step program for laughing too much!!

Hopefully, that 'program' will never come about.

I think thats what they keep in the cargo hold! Glad to see you got your monies worth our of the balloons! Have a great weekend!

The Retired One said...

Sooo true.
Soooo funny!

Mylar balloons are the best sort of best friends because:

*They get wrinkles, too.
*They stick around long after the roar of the crowd has died down.
*They can get caught in the ceiling fan and call it a good time! (my human friends never seem to enjoy it as much)

Love the face peeking over the table shot, Anna!

Dr Zibbs said...

Hahaha - excellent.

In the words of Mr Jellyneck from Strangers with Candy:

"Feel free to get me balloons..but no mylars...please.. I don't have the heart to pop them"

(aaaaand cut!)

Fragrant Liar said...

HA! We have had hanger-onners around our house for months too. They just shrivel up and die in a little corner of the ceiling, party die-hards.

Kasha said...

That's hilarious. They never stay inflated if you want them to.

anymommy said...

Excellent question. Also, life jackets. We had one that drifted around our house for months as well.

Jeanne said...

Before the Wright Brothers, there was a Frenchman who had an aircraft made, essentially, of balloons attached to a bicycle. He flew it all over Paris and left it parked outside restaurants.

Way cooler than airplanes....

I think of those balloons as pets. They always seem to follow me around, in my glorious wake.

I heard we're going to the moon again, maybe some "Hello Mr. Moon" balloons will be on-board.

Lisa said...

Too funny! Kevlar. I just love the name.....

HermanTurnip said...

You can't tell me that balloon was drinking nothing but water. ;-)

In my house the cats get to them first. The strings always end up twisted up in cat poop. Now there is a picture for ya...

Grand Pooba said...

Hahahaha! My dog is deathly afraid of balloons, we would have to pop those things right away or else he wouldn't come upstairs.

Drew said...

That balloon is still flying high like drug addicts on PCP
