    Why I carry balloons (the long skinny “entertainer” kind). I don’t think of it ahead of time as often as I should, but when I expect to be somewhere that kids are stuck waiting around with their parents (for doctor’s appointments, hair cuts, car repairs, airport travel, etc.) I try to have a balloons in a pocket. The smiles elicited by a small poodle, teddy bear, or flower are to die for — usually coming from the parents as well as the kids.

    Fun to brighten someone’s day unexpectedly 🙂
