    It Always Scares The Crap Out Of Me

    I'll be sitting there watching someone pop it and still jump. I hate loud, sudden noises like that. Sounds childish but it's true. I'll see someone approach a large balloon with a pin and I'll be like "No! No! Nooooo! Don't do it!" and cringe with my hands over my ears. What the...

    Kickstart My Heart...

    Not the Motley Crue song that rocks, but near heart failure. I jump so high and hard, I hate IT!! Do NOT pop balloons near me if you want unbruised skin, one of my limbs will involuntarily hit you. :(

    I dislike rubber balloons.
