an episode from my life

Today, Andy drove to the carpool meeting spot and left the car there for me to pick up to drive to work. On the walk to the car, from under the guard rail at the side of the road, a green ballon popped out at me. Not knowing quite what to do about it, I gave it a little kick and it bounced up into my hands. I carried it the rest of the way to the car, put it in the back seat, and headed off to work.
After I’d driven a ways down the highway, in the rear-view mirror I saw the balloon suddenly pop into view. It then hit me in the back of the head, and flew out the passenger-side window. I couldn’t see where it went after that.
Kind of curious.
