Tequila balloons!

by Rita Garza
(Alameda California)

Our first big gig was a balloon drop for new years. We were so excited we got together at my partners house and started blowing balloons. We decided to make a party of it and starting taking shots of tequila to help while we blew up every single balloon by mouth!

Pretty soon we had balloons in the living room, bathroom, kitchen, bedrooms, needless to say we had balloons everywhere and were feeling pretty good about it.

As the day turned into night we turned on the heater so we'd stay warm while continuing to blow up the balloons and of course keep slamming tequila shots!

Well pretty soon the balloons starting popping! I mean they were popping all over the place.
We found out later that the alcohol in the balloons was expanding with the heat and popping the balloons.

Needless to say we then went out and bought our first air machine!

Tequila Balloons and Tequila Sisters
by: Margit

Lovely story, Rita. Thanks for sharing. Reminded me of the title myself and a colleague earned during a recent off-site with our team: "Tequila Sisters" :-)

Had nothing to do with balloons though!

Rita,
Are you sure it was not just the heat popping the balloons?

I've heard of a Tequila Sunrise ...... did it make your balloons rise as well?

Good story and a wise investment
