This is a true story. 100% true.
A coincidence happened when was out driving yesterday. I wish I had had a camera with me and I hadn’t been driving, although if I hadn’t been in the car I wouldn’t have known about the coincidence that was about to happen.
I was only half listening to the radio. There was a debate about health issues going on. One of the experts said that there were no benefits at all in any person being obese. She seemed to be making a fair point.
Then, just moments later I saw someone walking along the pavement holding onto about 8, maybe 10 huge see-through plastic bags. Each bag contained about a dozen helium balloons. It was the weirdest looking thing. The old man carrying the balloons was thin way beyond average thin and looked worried. He was walking on tiptoes trying not to take off.
That’s when my random thought happened. The woman who said that there were no benefits in a person being obese had got it all wrong. If the bloke holding the helium balloons had been obese he’d have had no problem with the effect of helium on gravity. And that, I think, shows that there can be a benefit for those who might be obese for they have no fear when carrying a reasonable amount of helium balloons.
I should have parked up and phoned into the radio station to prove the expert wrong, but didn’t.
I’m still trying to work out why he was carrying so many helium balloons. He was walking away from town, and as far as I know there are no bespoke helium balloon shops in town. Odd.
I must add that I’m not having a dig at the obese. I respect everyone for what they are, apart from serial killers, paedophiles and the van driver who shattered my wing mirror.
