Goodbye, Old Blue

Based on my vast knowledge of helium balloons, the average lifespan of your run-of-the-mill, multi-colored, latex, helium-filled balloon is about 2-3 days.  Which makes this feat all the more astounding.  Last night, we FINALLY said good-bye to the last remaining balloon from Staley's birthday party.  Staley's birthday party that was over 2 months ago.  65 days ago, to be exact.  Yes, I did pay the extra $ .30 for the high-float (to make the balloons last a little longer), but never did I expect Staley to get so many months of enjoyment.  It was a little sad to say good-bye, but I don't think this balloon could complain.  He was a birthday party attraction.  He was the delight of a little girl.  He got played with and talked about multiple times each day.  He was not exposed to the elements, stuck away in a corner, or popped before his time.  It was a full life, and we were glad to share it with him.

Good-bye, Old Blue.  You will be missed!!
