So after the wedding reception last weekend, they let us take a couple bunches of balloons home. So there were about 10 balloons floating around the house for the rest of the weekend. By Sunday the helium was just about dead, but someone discovered that if you rub them on your head and get some static electricity going, you can stick them to the ceiling. Sunday night after dinner, Alex and Eric stuck all the balloons to the ceiling except one that refused to stay. Then they proceeded to “shoot” that balloon at the ceiling to knock the other ones down. Took them about 15 minutes, but they finally got them down. By which time Alex had actually gotten pretty good at holding the balloon and stretching it, then letting go to “shoot” it.
