So, today I learned something, that I think the rest of you have known for ages, but it never clicked in my head! And it has to do with balloons! So we are having a party tonight for some friend's birthdays, and I bought a bag of red balloons, and I asked my husband to blow them up for me ( with his mouth). When he got some done, I tied yarn to them, and was expecting them to FLY! You know, like stand up, look perky, and well, I had visions of walking into these people's house, with my bundle of balloons flying over my shoulder, and I was like " why don't they fly,?" My dear husband looks at me like I am crazy, and then he enlightens me to the fact that they are not filled with helium, therefore they are not going to FLY! Oh, that was a real bummer!!! So I learned something new today, if you want balloons to stand up and fly, you need HELIUM!
