Life as I know it… plus commentary

Up up and Away

with one comment

Today will be remembered as the day when a little boy named Falcon Heene caused the country to hold its breath.  A great big balloon launched into the sky and America worried about the little six year old boy thought to be onboard.  As it turns out, he was home safe, hiding in the attic inside a box, because he thought his dad was mad at him.

Meanwhile, in the Twitter world, one of the trending topics was #falconsonglist.  People were coming up with songs for little Falcon’s iPod as he flew among the clouds (at least while people thought he was).

Here are some of the songs:

In the Air Tonight
99 Red Balloons
Living in a Box
Ain’t No Mountain Enough
I Believe I Can Fly
Hello (Is it me you’re looking for)
Up Where We Belong

Twitter people are funny 🙂
