Those of you who are following my bubble-blowing project on Facebook should be delighted to know that I ended my first bubbly month with a spectacularly bubbly purchase.
I didn’t go to the grocery store yesterday with the intention of walking out with 24 packs of gum. I really didn't. Please believe me.
This is what happened. I was walking out of the store very innocently when I came across a shopping cart full of gum priced at a reasonable 25 cents per pack. I couldn’t resist.
I dived into the shopping cart and grabbed as many packs as I could. My arms were overflowing. My mouth was salivating. I sprinted to the register and poured all the gum onto the belt.
"Gum overload," I told the cashier.
"That's okay," she replied.
Beep. Beep. Beep. Beep. Beep. Beep. Beep. Beep. Beep. Fifteen more times.
I'm both proud and pleased. Let month #2 of this bubble-blowing project commence!
