I was double parked waiting for my wife, who was in the dry cleaners. I saw a silver mylar birthday balloon dragging a weight travelling along the sidewalk across the street. The balloon waited for cars to pass and it crossed the street and went behind my car.
My wife got into the car and as I was telling her about the balloon it came to her window. Since it is my daughter's birthday she looked out the window, opened the window and took it in. She put it in the back seat where it rested against the headrest of the back seat.
We made another stop and my wife went into her mother's house. The balloon came to the front seat where I was sitting and nuzzled against my cheek.
When we finally got home, I was freaked out and left it by the garbage. It flew past me and waited by the door.
As I opened the door it tried to follow me in but I closed and locked the door. An hour late I saw it waiting outside my neighbor's door.
A half an hour later it was gone
