It was a balloon in the shape of a minion - those goggley-eyed yellow twinkie-shaped sidekicks from some heart-warming animated movie or other. Because it was filled with helium it floated aimlessly on the air currents. Helpless. We can all relate to that.
Somewhere, I surmised, there was a small child who was disconsolate - bawling his or her little eyes out and being told by its parent that they had been told not to let go of the string and no I'm not going to buy you another one. Easy to relate to that as well.
Google reveals that minions are not to be confused with minyans. It would take 10 minions to have a minion minyan. Try Googling "anti-semitic minion" and you'll find some people with strange ideas who are not amused by minions. One has to wonder if every possible word is paired with the adjective "anti-semitic" somewhere on the Internet.
Anyway . . . as this particular mylar minion meandered past I captured it on video. You can see some trees and traffic lights and a few birds. Those are the San Gabriel mountains in the distance. After a minute and a half the poor thing passed out of sight for good. No doubt it eventually was caught on some electrical lines and caused a power outage; one last bit of evil - and an honorable death - for the floating minion balloon.. I've added some aimless floating music to its aimless bobbing and weaving. Enjoy.
