Paging @wildheart

Outdoors is where I got my start popping, back when I was much more phobic than I am now. Something about the wide open spaces makes the noise much less scary. Back then it was merely popping old, softened balloons into the trash barrel outdoors to dispose of them, but that was enough to get me "over the hump" of the phobia so that I could later experiment with popping indoors and in other situations.

A while back when I used to kayak more often on the lake in my neighborhood, I used to take balloons with me to use as flotation devices to store my stuff in case I tipped over (several inflated balloons tied to a waterproof bag with my keys and phone in it). It never happened, of course, but it did give me some balloons to pop after I got back to shore, lol!
