I’ve been here for more than a year. Just hanging on a hook. Packaged in a see-through plastic envelope — a “We’re #1” metallic gold hand, my index finger raised to the sky. Only $5.89.

I thought I would have been a chosen one last week for the Super Bowl, but no takers.

The Baby Girl and Baby Boy balloons have come and gone.
