Social Distancing Solution

Welcome to Sadje’s weekly What do you See challenge.

( For the visually challenged reader, the image shows a sky full of hot air balloons in various colors. The nearest one shows a couple in the basket with an operator)

It must have cost the earth, but it was the perfect solution.

Their  invitations read:

You are cordially invited to the wedding of Sarah and Peter on August 31st 2020.
Must have a head for heights.
No wedding gifts are necessary as we have everything we need apart from your company to share our Special Day.
RSVP by July 5th 2020 please

The day dawned with perfect conditions for the hot air balloon festival.
The bride and groom took to the air in the main basket with the official who was conducting the service who just happened to be a qualified balloon operator.
Fifty guests took to a variety of other balloons, thus complying with the social distancing regulations. They all wore headsets so that they could hear and join in the nuptials.
It was the wedding of all weddings as over a hundred balloons, not all part of the wedding party of course, filled the sky which was soon echoing cheers and raining confetti.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
