Balloons . Eh , What ?


I'm in search of the perfect balloon or maybe I'm not. Maybe I don't want a balloon , maybe I just want a marshmallow which I will devour all by myself by the fire and be happy about . Marshmallow is nice you know , versatile also. You can have it as a topping , you can dip in chocolate sauce or you and go all wild and even make a barbeque out of it .But no God and his mysterious ways. Just when you are about to eat your marshmallow happily, someone comes along and wants to be your balloon. They come in varied shapes , sizes and colors but how do you decide and settle on the perfect balloon.Then there are also the problems on how to choose. Some just look pretty but are full of hot air. Some may seem perfect at first but as soon as you take your eyes off them , they are gone. Some are the good looking ones , those you always want to have but they are too pricey and when you do manage to get them you wish you hadn't invested so much into them. How do you know that yes THIS is the balloon I want. This is the balloon for which I would want to give up all my rules , bend all my beliefs and just not think.
   Balloons bring along with them alot of butterflies in your stomach. They ask you about your day and if you had lunch. Then they pretend to listen and actually sympathise with your rants about ze parents , ze job and the big and small disappointments life throws at you. They are cool like that , they listen . A balloon that smiles at your idiosyncrasies and actually thinks they are cute. A balloon that is the exact blend of funny and yet not cocky. A  balloon that you can kiss and cuddle with . A balloon that you  want to hug at the end of the day.A balloon that mocks you and fights with you those mushy fights. A balloon that calls you just to say it loves you. The balloon you spend hours texting. So nice no ? NO. Anyway the phase after finding the balloon is supposed to be bliss , well so I hear . Until ofcourse your balloon starts liking someone else more or you just lose the grip with which you were holding it , so trustingly thinking it would sit by you always.
    In the wide variety of balloons and in a world where everyone is chasing and searching for the perfect balloon , there are people who are sick of this race. Sick , of the let downs . Sick of  their earlier balloons having gone through painful deaths at the end of cigarette butts , needles and sometimes your own sharp nails. A balloon that didn't last as long as it should have , a balloon that lost its lustre way before time. A balloon that turned into airless rubber. Such balloon burst incidents put you off balloons for a while , a long while .All you want to do this sit in your room and not look at the world full of people that have already found their balloons. So you stop going out , stop leaving your room and even if you have to, you walk with your eyes closed. You do not want to accidentally run into a cute pink balloon now , do you ?
    While you are carefully treading trying not to fall or bump into a pillar ,( Eyes closed., right ? ) you still miss that one balloon . The cute yellow balloon. A color you don't usually prefer , but then thats love isn't it . Common sense tends to betray you at these times. You still have the rubber of the deflated balloon , you still look at it sometimes and sigh so deeply but then you've moved on but not ready for new balloons yet. There you are pinning over than one beautiful balloon that you let go off while trying to hold on to something else. A balloon that made you truly happy.A balloon that stood apart from the rest but whose life was short. Finding a new balloon starts sounding like a bad , VERY bad idea. It  happens though , eventually. It  takes some time , a new kind of trust and little bit of pixie dust. :)



PS : If the above post didn't make sense to you . Well. Okay. 
PPS : If you have't had enough of BALLOOOOOON in the last 5 mins . Here is some more . :P


Also this post , is a complete work of fiction . Anybody ooops any balloon that decides to take offence and wants to confront me , let me tell you your questions will not be entertained :)
