I’m a day late with Rachel’s Time to Write Challenge, so here goes.
Balloon animals make the best pets for a variety of reasons.
They don’t need to be taken for a walk.
They don’t have to be house trained.
They don’t require food.
They don’t run up horrendous vet bills.
They are unlikely to attack and attract legal action for assault.
They don’t smell.
They don’t need a licence.
They don’t require insurance.
They don’t bark/meow/whine.
They come in a variety of colours.
They won’t surprise you with a litter of youngsters.
I wonder if they wither and wane in centrally heated homes as standard balloons do?
Kids love ’em though. Just don’t let Gru near them.
