I was at a friend’s wedding in South Carolina over the weekend. The reception was held outdoors beneath a tent. The sun was beginning to go down and the clouds and sky looked like pink and blue cotton candy. I was asked to sing a song. I decided to go with a song that, at best, one other person knew.
Preparation was required for the song. I had a couple of friends help me lug my helium tank from the rental car to the stage inside the tent. On stage, I wrapped my lips around the cool metal nozzle and filled myself full of helium. Stuffed, I headed to the microphone only to find myself floating from the stage. Help, I squeaked. Caterers ran up on the stage and tried to pluck me from the air. I was already too high. Family members of the bride and groom tossed chairs up at me to catch, to weigh me down. My hands were like balloons, I couldn’t grip them. A strong wind came rushing through the tent and took me outside. Before I floated out into the dusk, I saw some friends behind a large fan, directing its wind, laughing, raising their drinks to me.
I could spot Charleston from a thousand feet up. I was watching it twinkle when I ran into something above me. My back was to the sky so I couldn’t make it out. I felt hands around my left arm, something being tied to me. The hands released me and I floated up further to see the basket of a hot air balloon, a neon-orange string attaching me to it. Inside was Claire Boucher, a/k/a Grimes. Silly, she said, giggling. Leave it to me. She was dressed like a renaissance fair entertainer’s idea of a peaceful 22nd century.
After an hour or so, the last of the helium escaped through my pores. Claire brought the hot air balloon down onto the wedding grounds. Thank you, I said. Would you like to perform a song for the newlyweds? Sure, she said. She performed “Genesis”. A lot of the party thought it was strange but I enjoyed it.
