I love Evelyn's words, too -- I think they are very very helpful!
When you need to, relax into it....have fun.....enjoy the feeling in more ways than one! In the end, whether it's the balloon...or you....that "pops", that's the excitement, the thrill, and the fun of what we looners do.

I've talked about it in a few different threads here, but I strongly recommend padding of some sort. I had an overinflated 24" Belbal pop unexpectedly as I was sitting on it. Dropped me straight onto my tailbone. Almost 4 years later it has finally stopped bugging me. There are times when popping balloons is just fun. Especially big ones. The last week or so I've been on a serious popping kick. I was alone at work one night and decided to pop some overinflated big balloons. Necked out Q36's, different 24" balloons, some 18"/16" and some shapes. I was nervous with the Q36 and how big and tight it was, but it took some serious effort for my 215 pound self to sit pop it.

2 methods.

Inflate the neck quite a few times so it stretches out then inflate the rest of the balloon.

Blow it up way larger than you think and it will start to get a neck on it. Did this method tonight. Bounced on it a few times while tugging on the knot and it would fill the neck.

Sounds like that works very well. I've seen a lot of similar neck stretching techniques lately with certain balloons like C32LN and C36LN.
