Punch balloon. From my personal collection.

Oh, joy, the fun I used to have with these things! Hours and hours of fun, or therapy, or maybe both. It’s such a simple, idiot game, just banging that thick balloon around, but I always loved feeling that satisfying slap against my knuckles (or, when it flies off course the way its smaller cousin, the paddle ball, often did, the sting against the side of my head), hearing that hollow thwang you only get from these big punch balloons and those soft red kickballs in gym class. And the glee of doing it long enough that my parents started shouting “Will you take that thing outside!”

And it’s a gorgeous day out today. So I think I will. 🙂
