Of all the many skills I have, tying balloons is not one of them. But if there’s a way to acquire a skill, it’s by repeating it over and over. 107 times. With penalty of cold water upon failure*.
* Failure is much more likely when you are tying water balloons at 10:30 at night in the backyard–the nearest faucet with a threaded spigot–after an eleven hour day at Disneyland, hour-plus drive home, and three-layer cake-making. But at least there is no one to see you get soaked.
