... AFTER DARK
Today is November 21st. On this date in 1783, the first untethered hot air balloon flight took place over Paris, France. The flight lasted 25 minutes and covered 5.5 miles. The cloth balloon had been constructed by the Mongolfier brothers, who invented the world's first successful hot air balloons, and was later twisted into a doggie at a child's birthday party. Today is also World Hello Day, a day to say hello to at least ten people. Hello. That takes care of my reader; now to find 9 more people.
