Default Question
I'm looking for inspiration for new stories, and I have a thoughtful question for those on this forum:

What would be the worst situation to be a balloon fetishist in??

Someone with a popping phobia whoís at a party where one of the games is a popping contest. They donít have to participate, but they canít leave because they went with someone who has to stay for some reason or another.

Oooh oooh I got one....

How about "environmentalists" were successful at BANNING all latex balloons worldwide!?

That would be a pretty bad situation. (However that is probably not what you meant.)

LOL

That;s good but I don't know how I'd work that into a story.

Aside from running out of balloons? Hmmm...

Well, I donít know if itís the worst, but suppose youíre inflating a massive balloon and you canít get the pump to shut off, so youíre frantically trying to get it disconnected and meanwhile shoving things around in the room so it doesnít get poked by something.

that one might be a classic.

someone with a balloon popping phobia has to endure a balloon drop. and to spice things up, WITH THEIR CRUSH.

Being in proximity to a balloon they can't have. Especially if that balloon's in danger of being popped. It doesn't particularly have to be a balloon that's in any way more interesting than a normal balloon, but it's worse if it is. Let's say you're in a public setting, and there's something like this one: https://www.balloons-united.com/en/c...iantmouse.html

Let's further say that the person who has it is acting very much like they're going to pop it. I think most of us, this situation is going to make us crazy. Anyone else agree?

Yeah, that would be a really good one, because thatís always gonna be a potential issue. Itíd be a different kind of story, but an absurdly relatable one.

The flip side of that idea that would also make an interesting story: non-looner adult finds their son, daughter, niece or nephew “having a little too much fun with their balloons”, and asks their friend or relative they don’t know is also a looner for advice. Again, different kind of story, but one that has potential to be interesting.
