First off, let's explain the story that inspired the phot I'm using for the post. Friday night, restaurant gig at Vallartas Mexican Restaurant in Lutz/Land O' Lakes, and I was making balloons for all the children throughout the evening. As I'm about halfway through my shift, I approach a table with two little girls (and their parents). One girl was about 6 with straight blond hair and the second girl, like pictured, had the most adorable little blond ringlets bouncing around her face as she giggled and laughed at nearly everything I said. She made it a point to tell me about 15 times that, "Hey! You're Silly!" and "You're funny!" Between that and her little giggle fits, I left that table with a smile. I had made her day and hopefully have made a postive impact on that family's life. Just one more reason I love my Job.
I'm going to keep my story for friday as the one above. I know I kinda cheated here and used the "intro" as the story for this day, but I don't want to leave too much information for you guys anyway... I want to make sure I have everything bite-size ;-)
All of my performers were booked and I even had to turn away 2-3 events. It's a shame to not be able to entertain everyone, but that's sometimes how it works.
As for my Story of the day, I really want to brag on my face painter (and therefore myself...lol) for the great job she did on Saturday morning. We worked a free event in the morning that was suposed to be great publicity. I don't know about great publicity, but it was great fun!
And as for bragging... Ms. Kara, my amazing face painter was helping me entertain the children and in her free time, I saw her hula hoop, juggle, and play with bubbles with the children. (Where do I come in? I taught her to juggle and this was only her second day of practice. She was already juggling 3 balls!) She also taught a little girl how to hula hoop and kept the cutest little brittish girl amuzed with bubble for nearly an hour.
What did I do at the event? I made balloons, played games with the kids, tried to hula hoop, and I made food and water runs for Ms. Kara and I. She definately did a fantastic job. She's also smarter than me. I walked away sun burnt. She just has a nice tan.
I finished up the day going to Red Robin to make balloons and then I sent Dan (another great performer) out to the nightclub to work for me there. I haven't heard back from him yet, but I imagine he slept in this morning.
Today is spent taking phone calls (Already had 2) and trying to catch up on a few things I have to get done for work. That means getting insurance for the new car taken care of, writing this, and planning my next great adventure.
Until Next Time... Happy Twisting!
May your balloons never pop and your pump never fail. All the best,
Your Balloon Man,
