Today I was packing my Fiesta Ware, wrapping it in bubble wrap. I popped a few of the bubbles.

A memory surfaced of the fun times I would have with my father and brother popping bubblewrap. The bubblewrap came from the packages of stereo equipment my father would get at regular intervals.

We'd be sitting at the table.
I would notice some bubblewrap sitting with us.
I would pop one. Snap.
My brother would pop one. Snap.
My father would pop one. Snap.

It would escalate into a race to see who would pop the last bubble.
It was silly.
It was loud.
It was fun.

Well now I can have nearly as much fun playing this.

Ah, the internet.
Giving me fun.
Making noise.
Saving my bubblewrap for it's true purpose.

We put in another fan yesterday and it came with bubble wrap. There is something just so cathardic about twisting and ringing the pops out of it.

Savvy and I were popping bubble wrap yesterday! It was the really fat kind so I was showing her how to use her heel to pop the bubbles.

I love internet bubble wrap almost as much as I love real bubble wrap. Also, there's a really funny episode of Monk where he has to pop an entire sheet of bubble wrap. You probably have to see it to appreciate it.

miss hass-- we just started watching Monk and we love it. We borrowed the first and second season on DVD from some friends. I hope we get to the bubble wrap episode soon.

Wow! Me too. When we found the virtual bubble wrap, I too had to pop every single bubble. Even the ones behind the boxes.
