    John has the reputation of being a blowhard.

    Still, it might make sense to cross to the other sidewalk as those are water balloons and John is known for his delight in throwing them…

    I think I want to understand Steven’s interest a little more.

    Don’t knock it. Who else has a hobby that really takes their breath away?

    Do they give each other a blow by blow account?

    Due to high “inflation” costs, and a looming balloon payment to the Mylar distributor, their bubble is about to burst.

    The balloon popping enthusiasts Bob and Doug might make an appearance to liven things up a bit.

    But can you make an animal, say a dachund, for the neighbor’s granddaughter? That’s what will really sell.

    Just one of the many secret clubs on Ballard St. You have to know someone who knows not one but two members before you can even apply.. very exclusive this one.

    John and Steven spend time together because everyone else on Ballard Street finds them deadly dull.

    Mr. A, our mentor, joins our news outlets as experts in identifying and featuring niche enthusiasts. We like Mr. A’s niche enthusiasts because he is clear that they live on Ballard Street. By contrast, we resent news-media types who try to convince us that enthusiasts for their favorite niches, which are even more bizarre than that of John and Steven, live on Main Street.
