Smile in 3, 2, 1: Balloon Animal on Muni
Rider Anthony sent us this picture of ol’ yellow on a “very crowded 38L.” When you’re ass-to-crotch with strangers during commute hour, it’s the little things that count.
Balloon animals on Muni is my favorite meme, short of actual pets on the bus. (And the even rarer meme of the bus arriving just when I needed it.) I spotted my first balloon animal on a snoozing Muni in October, after which rider Kristin sent us a pic of its twin (or perhaps the same one?) on a 16X. Rider Heather sent us a blue balloon dog from 2010, and, stretching even further back, we’ve got this orange one on the 5-Fulton, via telluomo on Flickr:
Did a Muni balloon animal make a rough ride or day a little better? Tell us all about it.
This is what is giving me the will to go on today. Thank you.
I asked the driver of the bus I saw the green one on where it came from and he said “I don’t know. It was there when I started.” Not a lot of help 🙂
Ha, thanks anyway, Kristin. It at least tells us they’re sharing the love!
