I pulled away from our driveway at 7:58 and went to CVS and Giant before breakfast at Perkins with Charlotte and Kaye. A Belguim waffle and an hour and a half later, I went to Poor Richards (interesting shop where I found an outdoor Easter flag), picked up a loaf of sourdough bread at a bakery, a few groceries at Genuardis and then home to get the ice cream in the freezer.
Imagine my surprise when I pulled into our driveway and tied to our mailbox are two balloons.
One looks like a basketball, the other is a blue star.
Am I a basketball star and no one told me?
I don't think so!
I ran inside with my purchases and zoomed off again to Geerlings (a local nursery to purchase a gift card for a co-worker who's birthday was coming up) and then the last stop was None Such Farm.
Once again pulling into the driveway, I wonder about the balloons.
I check the mailbox to see if there is a card from the balloon
I check the front door.
No card or note.
I checked our home phone and my cell phone for messages.
I decided to take a picture (for evidence) since Wonderful Husband was gone for a weekend golf trip and....
cue spooky music
....the balloons were gone!
Well, sort of.
They were actually tangled in our neighbors' tree!
They can thank me later, but probably won't since the balloons are pretty high up in their tree, and even with my "mad" basketball skills, I can't reach them. Ha!
If you tie balloons on a mailbox, tie them on securely.
I am a share-er. (Passing on my balloon gift to our neighbors :)
Thank you balloon bandit, you made me smile.
the balloon mystery continues...
Have you ever received a surprise gift that makes absolutely no sense?
