Good idea: buying Husband a yellow, smiley balloon for no real reason, as a surprise.
Bad idea: letting the balloon escape while attempting to tie it down to a basket in the trunk of my car.
I had no choice but to stand and laugh in the parking lot of the Dollar Store, watching $1.05 and the only surprise I purchased for Husband quickly rise above me. The large yellow smiley on the balloon, only added to the humor of the situation, as it’s glowing yellow face seemed to be smiling as it found its freedom in the sky.
So my surprise for Husband was not the balloon I intended, but rather this simple, comic story that I relayed to him on the voicemail of his cell phone as I stood in the parking lot.
