Yesterday I saw a "rock" on the hillside I'd never seen before. Investigation revealed a paper hot air balloon that came down, happily, without setting the dry leaves on the hill on fire because then the whole woods would probably have gone up in flames. It's made of four paper panels with a metal ring on the bottom supporting some sort of flaming device that had singed the paper skin.
It does not look home-made. One panel says "2014 F*** it." The other side has what look like New Years resolutions: Go to 6 flags; Stop biting nails; Explore the City; Learn the banjo; Dance more; Let's see dem muscles; Stress less; Learn a new Sport. There was no name or contact info asking to know where it was found.
