First balloon is a fully paid off three or four bedroom house in a good school district.
Second balloon is a decent little nest egg.
Third balloon is plane tickets and hotel keys for a two month world vacation.

I just realized the question said intangibles. I'm failing at life today. Okay, first balloon is full of self-esteem for my two preteen daughters. Second balloon is full of confidence for same daughters. Third balloon is confidence and self esteem for myself.
Don't get me wrong, I have some. But more would definitely be beneficial.

@KatMalina I love your answers! Both sets!


The first balloon is a million dollars.
The second Balloon holds a half a million dollars, because the first Balloon couldn't hold it all.
The third balloon hold a dollar in small change for the slot machine because I board from having to much money.

Balloons don't hold those kinds of things...we need INtangible things...

@slydr68 for me to have those things is intangible.


I failed the box challenge. Let's see...In the small balloon is self-confidence because I just need a little. In the medium balloon is awareness since I seem to be oblivious to all but the most obvious things happening around me. The large balloon would contain wisdom. You can never have too much of that.

It's nice that you expect the best from says a lot about you, Hermit!

@slydr68 Do I really seem that way? I try not to expect things, but I do have general assumptions about humanity.

@Hermit Actually, I think you worded it better than I did. I believe you to be a very kind soul. ?


I got a sharp pin and is hungry for rubber. All I wanted were 3 balloons... you can go now.

Hilarious! Hopefully you will stab the small balloon first, suck in the helium, and threaten the other balloons and mailman in the resulting high pitched voice!

@slydr68 I love your style but me knowing me, I will like to destroy the mailman first so there will be no more stupid deliveries on 3's. About the balloons, I grew up with the premise of... if you fight the Bigger than you guys... the one like you and smaller than you won't mess with you. But the high pitched voice... got to try that... got to.... thanks... I heard it and seen it but never done it. Once the pin is out, got to use it... right?


A full nights sleep, peace of mind, world peace. I don't care which balloon has which, but the sleep better get here soon!


Health, peace and happiness. I don't care which one is in which box, every little bit helps

Wishes, dreams, aspirations.....but which one in which balloon? This is too hard.

Caramels are in the small balloon.
Money is in the medium balloon, and my partner is in the large one.

(He's gone for a month.)

Those are tangible...LOL

@slydr68 Ugh. You're correct. I got too excited to thoroughly read the post. I just REALLY want those caramels.

@Donotbelieve I do NOT blame you a bit...caramel is amazing!!!


Small: Companionship (one partner or maybe up to a dozen really close friends)
Medium: Health (in the larger balloon so that I will have more of it)
Large: Love (in the largest balloon because I want to share it with the world!)

Patience, insight, and persuasion. Odd how this one seemed so much easier than the boxes.


Are inert gasses intangible enough? If so, nitrous oxide in all three please. If not; Ill take world peace in the large, prosperity for the hungry in the medium, and a bit more charisma/confidence for myself in the small.

Wurlitzer Level 8 July 26, 2018

I really don't like balloons.

KKGator Level 9 July 26, 2018

Hmm...not sure how else to pack intangibles...maybe tanks? LOL


Large: a wish for milk
Medium: a wish for Oreos
Small: a wish for more of each

Health, peace, prosperity

Nitrous oxide for laughs in the small. Sulfur dioxide in the medium to nausiate the laughing fools from the small. And hope in the large that it is not in my house in case someone vomits.
