I'm going to try and give you a few examples of scenarios, to possibly relate to mine. Anytime I think of balloons, I think of this one party I was at.
Perhaps it could be related to the saying, "love is blind." Or, like when you burn yourself with a sparkler but you're so excited to have a sparkler in the first place, you barely notice the burn. Even in sports, you're so full of adrenaline, you may have just gotten the puck to the ankles or a ball kicked right at your face... but you have one goal. You've got your eyes on the prize and you don't feel any pain.
My disaster happened at a friend's birthday. It wasn't until a good chunk of time had passed that I realized I should probably stop what I was doing. And no, there was no alcohol involved I was about six.
I had just arrived to the party, and all of my friends were in the basement. I walked down the stairs, to see a ceiling full of balloons! Holy macarole a child's dream! I don't even know what I got her, my mom picked it out - heck with the birthday girl I came for balloons and a loot bag! I was so filled with energy at that point I went running thought the balloons, jumping up trying to grab them all. Now, I should mention there was string hanging from them all. You know, that party string where you can curl it up with scissors? They come in all sorts of colours... and cut you in all sorts of places. Paper cut after paper cut, each time I jumped up for a balloon I would slice the insides of my fingers.
You would think I'd get the hint right away, but no. I wasn't stopping until I could get all of the red balloons in my hand. Needless to say I walked away from this party with more band-aids than contents of my loot bag. That's what you get for being greedy...
Now that I have matured, a little... I no longer need to jump for balloons. Actually, I probably still would. Now that I have gotten taller***... these floating balloons would be cool to have at an event. I've never seen something like this before and I would definitely give this a good "wow" or a "cool look at that" if I walked into a party and saw them.
