The Balloon Fiesta Park is a gigantic area, so it's nearly impossible to stay together with your friends or family, as everyone wanders here and there, among the crowds, to see what's going on. Thank goodness for cell phones! I can't imagine trying to do this event without them.
On Saturday I overheard a lady talking on her phone, apparently trying to reconnect with family or friends. Here's what she said:
"Hi, where are you? [pause] Uh-huh. Well, I'm standing just beneath Darth Vader's right jaw."
Good thing she wasn't standing beneath Airabelle the Flying Cow; her location, then, could have been "udderly" embarrassing to describe!
