Apocalypse Monday - Balloons

This is it... our 'Apocalypse Monday' swan song.  It's been an honor to prepare all of you for the zombies but now we must prepare for the holidays.  If unprepared, the holidays can be just as dangerous as a zombie, as anyone who's forgotten to bring a dish to a holiday potluck can attest to.

For our final edition, we're discussing balloons.

There are so many uses for these little babies... let's get started, shall we?

1.  Civilized societies don't live without balloon bouquets.  I'll be darned if we're going to let the zombies turn us into animals.

2.  Fill up some balloons and put them into your satchel.  If you find yourself short of air, you've got your portable air bags with you.  GENIUS.

3.  Balloons are the universal way to alert people that there's a PARTAY OVAH HEEEAAA!  I am so hip to today's lingo.

4.  You can blow up some balloons and set them out in the yard.  You'll hear them pop when the zombies approach, like a little warning alarm.  Also works for in-laws.

5.  Summers just aren't the same without a good ol' water balloon fight.  Stock up and you'll have an artillery that every frat boy in the world will envy.

6.  When the end of the world happens, you'll need to be creative about finding a new career, especially since your boss got eaten.  Figure out how to make those balloon animals and hire yourself out to parties.  Remember me when you make your first million.

7.  If you need to perform an emergency appendectomy on yourself, you'll need some sterile hand wear... balloons over each finger and you'll survive to tell the tale.

8.  Balloons are great for target practice, and you'll need target practice, what with all the bloodthirsty undead around... or pushy salesman.  For the last time, we're not interested in your zombie-attracting spray.

I've enjoyed our time together survivors.  I hope you enjoy the holiday series coming up... who knows, maybe a zombie will pop in now and then. :)

I link up at these great parties!


  1. I am so sad to see this series come to an end. *Tear*.

    I feel especially prepared since I know how to make balloon animals. I'll be free to be hired out, when the zombies arrive.

  2. When I get to work in the morning the first thing I do when I log on is check this blog to see if you have posted - you always make me chuckle :-) I shall go stock up on balloons now (if only to use them as an in-law warning alarm!)

  3. I was worried that I had missed the last installment of zombie preparation. I guess I went to bed too early last night. I have really enjoyed your creativity, but I hope I never have to use any of these tips!

  4. I was TOTALLY thinking balloon animals! Love it. I am so sad this is coming to an end. I guess if the zombies arrive after this week, I'll have to just hurl a pumpkin at them.


I love all the comments I get from you! Because of an insane amount of spam, I had to turn off anonymous commenting but I'd love it if you'd comment anyway!
