Today, my sister and I were walking to Walgreens, when we saw a big lot of balloons all tied together on the other side of the street. “Should we get them?” my sister asked, and I responded with an overenthusiastic “Yes!” Well, by some divine intervention, the wind started to pick up and caused the balloons to move into the street. I looked back and I saw that the city bus was headed towards our way, so naturally we began to panic. We really wanted those balloons. Before we knew it, the balloons traveled their way across the street, miraculously dodging each car that passed, as if it had a mind of its own. The wind got heavier and pushed it more and more, and the bus got closer and closer, and for a split second my eyes watered and my grasp became weak… I began to laugh uncontrollably as the collection of balloons landed right in front of me, after dodging both the cars and the bus… There it was, within my reach. So my sister and I each grabbed an end of the string of balloons… took it with us to Walgreens, and when we arrived home later that day, we sucked all the helium out, made funny voices, and laughed the night away. It was awesome.
