Same! When I'm out and about and come across balloons in everyday life it's never a sexual thing, just a happy coincidence that brings joy to my day every time. I get that warm/fuzzy and almost nostalgic-like feeling.

Balloons and the sight of them, even in non-sexual ways, are a huge joy and comfort to me. Even if it's just a single balloon. They do bring much happiness to me. That's why I love having them around my home so much. So I completely see where you are coming from.

I have to agree with you guys, balloons in public are something very different to me than in private. Just sometimes when I see a shop with a large column over the entrance I catch myself thinking "must be pretty cool doing the cleaning up at that place."

For me, my first thought is: "Do I like it (the arch/column)?", then "Would it look good in my home?" and finally "If I ask for it, or offer to make a charitable donation, and the store owner said I could have it once they'd finished with it, would I be able to get it safely home or not, and how much will transportation cost me to do that?"

Only then, do I decide whether to just admire it, or do something about that admiration, and speak to the store/business about getting it home...

That problem is very easily solved by using a needle Kidding, I don't want to be rude. Have you ever actually taken an arch or column home like that? The way you write sounds like you've succeded in that before.

Yes I have, on many occasions. Either with the help of a friend and their car, cutting the arch into three or more sections and transporting them, one at a time, or else, hiring a woman or man with a moving van, for an hour, and they collect me and the arch, and we drive it back to mine, and I then get it into my flat.

I often do this, a couple of times a year. I'd rather do this, despite all of the hassle and grief it can cause me, than see a beautiful balloon arch be popped and wasted.

For me, as a strict non-popper, a popped balloon is a wasted balloon. I've had arches for months in my home, before they've become too saggy or deflated, and only then, do I (regretfully) deflate the remaining balloons and recycle them.

But I'd much rather get a few months use out of them, if I can, whenever possible.
