Balloon flowers at the stress test

Last week, I had to take a stress test — and while I was talking with the technicians, I mentioned that I was a clown, which one of the ladies thought was just wonderful; so I asked if she would like a balloon.

I tend to keep balloons in my pocket for just such a reason, and before I left I’d made balloons for several folks — as I say, I have the opportunity to collect smiles.
