TV: Big Deal

I don't even want to write the words because the whole world is probably Googling them. Maybe I could use the traffic, but I don't want it if it's going to be because of "The Boy." By now you're probably aware of the whole $$$ debacle.

So I'm sitting at lunch and someone comes in apologizing for being on her cell phone. Apparently her mother was sitting on the edge of her chair because a boy was hovering 8000 ft above earth in a balloon made by his parents. Being the tech saavy [okay, that's how I get my news] person that I am, I immediately got streaming video. At that point the balloon had landed and "The Boy" was no where to be found. Many were worried that "The Boy" had fallen out, but not me. I knew "The Boy" was hiding.

Later, reason appeared. I had to go back to work, but everyone had their opinions and some were thinking about the events. How could "The Boy" be in the basket if the balloon was tipping back and forth? Who actually saw "The Boy" get into the balloon? Oh, but I knew. That kid would show up safe and sound at home, costing $$$. At first I thought it was just the kid, but now charges are being brought up. The latest being that the parents had been planning this for at least two weeks.

Now I really feel for "The Boy." You can't pick your parents.
