It's a Penguin! 

Today we trekked down to one of the local Malls (Hillsdale in Burlingame for those of you following along at home). We wandered, we had lunch, we did not buy anything. While there we encountered the Have Your Picture Taken With Santa booth. Next to it was a young man with an unenviable job. He was making balloon animals for anyone who wanted one (paid by the Mall, I assume as there was no charge and he wouldn't accept tips). He was quite talented, but in order to keep the queue from reaching infinite length, he was working at super high speed. He was flushed, his hands were shaking. But he did manage to have a pleasant chat with each child as he was making their flower, motorcycle, flower, whatever. YA elected to have a penguin.
