The other day I had access to a bunch of balloons, and seeing as how they'd fulfilled their purpose I brought some home to Amia. The great thing was that I had my scooter, so I attached them to the back and took off through town. I rode down Linden from the House of Worship, through the Northwestern campus, and through some residential neighborhoods with balloons of various colors trailing behind me. It was glorious. I got so many great reactions. A lot of people would see me coming from a ways and just watch the whole way. Others had a puzzled look on their face. And others just smiled.
I felt like a character in Amelie. It was "freakin' awesome"* creating that image for people.
