Hey!  Happy Friday everyone.  Has anybody ever been to a hot-air balloon liftoff event (whatever those things are called)?  The explosions underneath those things look like something out of an action movie.  I don’t know about anybody else, but I’d be afraid to be directly underneath that kind of inferno in any case, let alone at thousands of feet in the sky with no escape route other than down.  It may be my fear of heights.  I get uneasy just looking off the balconies of tall buildings at times.  Especially when I look down and see an army of ninjas scaling up toward me.  But then they pass by me and I’m relieved, like when a cop puts his lights on behind you but it’s to pull over somebody else.
