Oops, I missed another family birthday party. Not on purpose–I was working. My relatives have learned not to expect me at family events when it is on the weekend. They know that I will be performing my comedic balloon entertainment somewhere in Chicago and neighboring communities. My wife, Michelle, will mark off dates on my calendar that I should take off. If it is not on the calendar, then I can book a gig.
However, when it is a kid’s birthday party for family — I go out of my way. I try to make them a special balloon sculpture that they will like. This year Michelle’s cousin’s daughter was turning four years old. So I made here a large Princess doll.
Everyone at the party thought it was the bomb. OK, that‘s my wording, but what the heck, it’s my blog. Michelle was able to take a snapshot of her running around with the balloon. I would say they liked it.
