Joel's Balloon Shop
Joels Balloon Shop ( Inspired by a Story by BalloonFan called Sandra's Balloon Shop)
Joel basically knew it the moment the guy entered his store. There was nothing out of the ordinary about him, typical guy around college age maybe a bit older. It didnt matter what they looked like young - old; fat thin, Joel could pick them out the minute they came through the door. They all were more or less the same. First, they looked around a bit shyly, looking at all the different balloons with that certain look of excitement in their eyes. They always hung back and avoided eye contact. He knew the fascination so well because he felt the same about balloons and he had realized a life-long dream by opening this balloon-shop. The customer looked to be in his twenties, thin, shaggy blond hair. He had some whiskers under his thick bottom lip. He was dressed in a sleeveless shirt and loose wind pants like he might have had just finished a work out.
