A Cure for Balloon Boy Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

Let's make a deal...

OK, you wanna hear my pitch for a reality show idea?

Here goes: each week, this looney family swaps kids with another family. The loons - who are total media whores, btw - pack the other family's kids into a giant helium balloon (and I'm working on a Jiffy Pop™ product placement deal here, baby) and let the thing go.

Yes, really, just let it fly. The balloon - filled with some cute kids - will drift aimlessly over America and we'll follow it with choppers, TV crews...huge ratings! Everyone will watch that thing to see where it lands.

What if it crashes? Well, you gotta break a few eggs to make an omelette, right?

So I'll take 10% on the front AND back ends of the deal and a cut on merchandising...balloon hats, t-shirts, NASCAR cars. And maybe we can bring in a celebrity each week and throw them out of the balloon.

Whattaya say? Do we have a deal?

When stress attacks our digestive system it can result in constipation or diarrhea, heart burn, nausea and stomach pains. Heartburn promotes the production of acids that can irritate our esophagus and cause cancer. Colon problems can result when the digestive system is disrupted, as can ulcers. Thanks for sharing.  said...

The term is also applicable to the effects of exposure to contexts in which gang violence and crime are endemic as well as to the effects of ongoing exposure to life threats in high risk occupations such as police, fire and emergency services. Thanks.
