Gubbare

The heartwarming picture of a little girl holding balloons, while the uncaring world rushed past her, on the busy road. He remembered how much funballoons and childhood used to be. But wait, there was something wrong with the picture- she wasn’t looking too happy. Was it only because no one was buying her balloons?

until next time, hot air all around

Much ado about nothing.... said...

The cynic in me imagined just that from the very first line, I mean is it so difficult to picture a kid happily holding a balloon....

there was a day i saw a 4 year old boy doing somersaults on the side walk...i smiled at his childish carefree way of showing happiness, untill i saw him put out his hand at the passing motorists...

he was as old as my son..
