As a listener outside of my intern activities, I had heard Fish bring up the topic of balloon animals last week pertaining to the top two reasons of divorce and tips to get pregnant. You see, typing this, I should have realized that the term balloon animals does not actually mean physical balloon animals. But, like many listeners that tune in and out to the show while doing various things, I distractedly remembered this word. I did not think of the innuendo and thought it would be a great way to show I pay attention!

I bought a impressive octopus balloon animal at Rivertown Crossings Mall and was confident it would be received well. I got a few laughs at the gesture, but once the show started it was revealed to me that the topic of balloon animals was a code word for sex! I was embarrassed that I misunderstood the context. Now, I'll really have to pay attention next time!
