I know it's weird, but whenever I feel overwhelmed with something/someone's actions, whether good or bad, I unconsciously think of...balloons! :/    

balloons

 

Whether it's because we associate balloons with something which will eventually burst/pop I'm not sure of. All I know is that whenever something takes me by surprise, I instinctively find myself seeing this huge string of colourful balloons floating up and away... Told you I can be odd! :/
