#37


housekeeping pet peeve #37


those pesky
half-deflated balloons
that nobody plays with anymore
but you just can't
get rid of
because
the act of doing so
makes too much noise
and causes little feet
to come running
and distraught faces to ask
what in the world
i'm doing
throwing away balloons?

We have experienced the same issue over and over again...

not to mention, i have always thought there was something a little bit gross about a flaccid balloon. i don't know why.

Хотя я запоздала на пару лет со своим комментарием, но все же. Разве ты не знаешь как избавиться от них тихо, мама? Наклеиваешь кусочек скотча и прокалываешь в этом месте. Можно даже ножницами прорезать, только осторожно! Главно чтобы скотч был хорошо приклеен!
