“Spilling a drink is the adult equivalent of losing a balloon”

"Spilling your drink is the adult equivalent of letting your balloon go”—that is, experiencing a great loss (in sentimental, but not in monetary value)—is a jocular one-line saying that has been printed on many images. “Spilling your drink is the adult equivalent of letting a balloon go” was posted on Twitter on June 22, 2013. “Spilling a full drink you just paid for is the adult equivalent of letting a balloon go” was posted on Twitter on June 28, 2013.

“Spilling your drink is the adult equivalent of letting your balloon go!!!” was posted on Twitter on April 24, 2014.

“Spilling a full drink as an adult is like losing a balloon as a child” was posted on Twitter by Missy_S_ on July 17, 2013. “Spilling your drink is the adult equivalent of losing a balloon” was posted on Twitter by faustine tattypight on December 31, 2013. “Spilling a drink is the adult equivalent to losing a balloon” was posted on Twitter by Cody Donaldson on June 25, 2015. “Spilling a drink is the adult equivalent of losing a balloon” was posted on Twitter by Sam Landers on February 20, 2016.

This is a non-specific version of the saying, and there is a beer version, a coffee version and a wine version.
