I also loathe those Pillsbury Doughboy canisters that pop when you least expect them to, even when you most expect them to.
The kids are playing with that #$*&%^* green balloon right now.
What we need is balloon legislation. Criminal background checks before owning or operating a balloon. Balloons should be licensed and owners should have to undergo intense training before being allowed to toss a balloon. No underage balloon blowing. Strict penalties for those who use balloons in abhorrent acts. Or else all balloons should be forced to be housed in a secret arsenal in Montana and left to slowly deflate.
Seriously, I am going to cower under the kitchen table until it’s spring. Which might be a long time coming.
