change by ErinBird change by ErinBird
People change over time , just like balloons .

(sorry if that looks like a condom .. I should've got a rounder balloon .. how awkward)

I really hate balloons .. I just have a fear they're going to pop and blind me or something , so doing this picture got me out of my comfort zone hahaha . Something I do love about balloons though is how if you write something on it , and it deflates , the writing goes really tiny . So that's what I did for this (: I wrote on it in big with sharpie and cut a little hole near the bottom where the air came out and this was left . I actually saw this kind of idea in another my picture my friend did , so I wanted to do it my own way (:

P.S I will be uploading the Q&A response very soon (hopefully !)

Enjoy , comment & fave ! ☮

LOL that balloon you picked. :laughing:

I forgot that when you write on balloons and deflate them the words get skinny! :O

You're not going to get blinded by a balloon. Even if they get in your eyes the latex won't damage them. :eye:

Once though, when I was 4 years old, I was riding in a hot car and the balloon popped when it touched the window, and broke the glass! I have to ask a physicist how that happened! My mom told it might have been resonance... :O_o:

Yep. The balloon shattered the window! COMPLETELY! But I'm clueless as to precisely how. It's cool that there's an appropriate official dA emote for this situation, though! --> :clueless:

i don't like balloon either, i too am scared when they pop. i HATE any abrupt noise such as that.
i once had a job working in a florist and i was asked to blow helium balloons using the machine.. after watching it demonstrated and seeing several pop loudly along the way i said to hell with this job.

Hahahaha thank god i'm not the only one ! I actually found out today that 2,000 people are injured by balloons a year ! But yeah i'm very much like you , I seriously hate the pop of them .

yes, very freaky. i am even leery of filling up water balloons as well.

and wow, i never thought about being injured by them though :o i was too concerned about the popping sound, haha.
i am scared of batteries and car engines and lighters too :noes: also those pressurized biscuits which come in a can that have a tab which you unravel then without warning it explodes open along the seam! how i hated those and would make someone else open them, but they have discontinued that shit so now i will buy them :aww:

Hahaha :giggle: I'm also scared of spiders and large bodies of water . I just hate being in a large amount of water because the vast emptiness just makes me panic , which is another reason why I hate being in a swimming pool and the ocean alone . There's just something about it that really freaks me out hahahaha
I am also sometimes scared of the dark if I think about movies like paranormal activity for too long

oh my goodness, we might be living paralleled lives BECAUSE i am petrified of spiders and i mean i have a deep and ingrained terror of them which cannot be lessened :lol:

if i so much as see ONE spider, even outside, it ruins my whole day and night! i'll be jumpy and nerved out making sure to look carefully everywhere i go in the house before touching things or even sitting down, it's quite terrible. i used to have nightmares of them but that died off thankfully. it was always the black windows, those strike the worst sort of terror in me, like a mortal terror, can't explain it :shrug:

ALSO, i have the same sort of fear of not only dark water, but DEEP water as well. we have a large lake on the property. one day i googled it and learnt that it runs 90 feet deep! this changed my entire perspective on the lake itself now, now it has a sinister quality for me. i wish i never learned that info, hahaha

rule of thumb: if i cannot see the bottom then there is no way in fuckdom that i am putting in even a toe and that includes the ocean, what a scary thought even writing about it :D (
although on a couple occasions i have been known to be rarely brave in the event of a spliff or a few glasses of vodka blueberry tonic)

and i am afraid of the dark TOO.

when i was a kid i'd hate to be the one who's job it was to turn off the lights, but at times the duty fell to me and i'd go stand beside the switch, then i'd take a few seconds to plot out the fastest course straight into the bed. once i hit that light i'd blast through the dark on feet and toes made of greased lightening and -(most important part) one must leap into the bed from a metre or more distance FROM the bed and then immediately shoot under the safety of the covers; this way never allowing oneself to be near the edge of the bed at any time as the chances are quite high of being seized by the ankle by whatever may be hiding under it just waiting to get you :nod:


of course, i am an adult now, yet sometimes it still goes that way :)

and i absolutely FORBID any discussion of ghosts or monsters before bedtime and in my book that means any time after dark!
if i so much as hear a whisper of spooky stuff i'll be ruined for hours and have every light on in the house.


it was nice talking to you about these mutual phobias good sense that we both share :handshake: it gave me an idea to make a journal about fears only go into much detail, haha

Wow yes i'm exactly like you !
With spiders , they make me so nervous and panicky when i'm around them and I have to get my mum or dad or brother to kill them because I hate the feeling of killing them erghh just feels weird
Same with me in the dark too ! Whenever I switch all the lights off , I literally sprint up the stairs to my bedroom hahaha .
Also the black , cloudy water is with me also ! I remember this one time I made myself a bath and I put these like bath salts in it , but it made the bath kinda milky and I hate getting into water where I can't see the bottom argh

Well , I'm glad i'm not the only one with these phobias ! This was quite an interesting coversation haha :giggle:
