today I bought a bubble machine for $6.49. You push a button, and it blows out bubbles. Like magic. I KNOW.
I would like to go on record and say that a bubble machine may be the greatest child entertainer i’ve found all summer, which is saying a lot since they seem to want to spend hours fighting over toys, swapping said toys and then fighting again. Even this favorite pastime was forsaken in favor of running around the yard and shrieking in glee over translucent globes that filled our yard and floated gently into the neighborhood like beacons of childhood laughter.
