A great idea Andy

A couple of weeks ago, we went to Red Robin for lunch. Oh look, they have free balloons for the kiddies. But how do we keep this thing from floating off when we leave the restaurant. I had a great idea! I'll tie it to Cammie's pacifier, that will be fun for everyone. As we were leaving some strangers even said, "Awe, that's cute, what a good idea!" I am awesome! even strangers can respect that! The pacifier was even heavy enough that it would not let the balloon float off. Brilliant!

So we got to the car and climbed in. So far so good. It was one of the first really nice days after the sweltering summer, so Becky and I had our windows open. But I'm pretty smart, and I got to thinking as we reached highway speeds, "Hmmm, I bet the wind could probably suck the balloon out the window", so I reached down to roll up the windows. At that point the balloon bounced around and out the window, and in a second, the pacifier whipped out the window, and the whole contraption bobbed down the highway and got tangled up in the guard rail. I looked back at Cammie, who looked really confused at this point. No crying, not laughing, just a plain, blank stare.

I felt so bad. We didn't go back for it.
