About a week ago, my new nephews received two balloon dinosaurs. They have stick on legs and a cord so when you pull it they look as it they are walking. The oldest one got a T-Rex and the youngest got a Brachiosauros (the one with the long neck).
So they were playing with them and what not, until the youngest broke off one of the legs off his. They would have to stick it back on but of course it wouldn’t last as the youngest just loves breaking things. (He once got a PJMasks figurine that talks and within an hour of getting it he put it in the water and wouldn’t work. Amazingly it was ok after being beside the fire).
Of course everything doesn’t last, and now both of the dinosaurs were legless and were floating between the bathroom and the sitting room on the roof for the past few days.
So the next day we were cleaning and we had both the front door and the back door of the house open to let in some fresh air. I was sitting across the house in the mobile home that myself and my husband are living in for the time being (I’ll post one day about our move), and I look out the window and I see the Brachiosaurus dinosaur floating outside the house!
I start shouting ‘F*CK F*CK!!’ and I start frantically running outside. My husband is thinking “Oh god something must have happened to her Mum or Dad!” and he jumps up too, until he looks out the window and sees it. I run outside as the balloon is gently floating through the garden, getting higher and higher. I get to it, but it’s too late. The Brachiosaurus is out of reach, as it serenely floats higher and higher and over the field behind our garden….. until it’s just the shape of the brachiosaurus that could be seen.
Myself, my husband, my Mum and Dad all just stood in the garden looking at it as it floated away into the clouds, while I was thinking “Oh god, my nephew is going to be so upset when he finds out it’s gone…”
It must have came out of the front door and floated down the side of the house into the garden. It was very funny though…but I can imagine if my nephew was there he would be distraught!
The T-Rex is still floating in the house though… so we’ll see how long it lasts until his bid for freedom.
