O Bubble Wrap

(disclaimer: This post is not meant to be sacrilegious in any way--just light-hearted.)

1. And it came to pass that the boy did find bubble wrap in two great rolls upon the side of the road. And he did rejoice exceedingly. And he did take the unwanted rolls and put them in his pack.
2. The boy began to lay plans for the wrap with great joy. And his mother did ask whether he would share the wrap with his friends. The son did treat the question with great consternation at the beginning.
3. Soon the boy did come to see that the bubble wrap had been a gift and must be shared by all, equally.
4. And it came to pass that the boy did tear off a piece of the wrap and did cause his mother to carry the rest of the wrap home with her, enjoining her to refrain from popping the wrap exceedingly. And the dutiful mother did lug the wrap home after extracting a promise from the foolish son to rub her back and play with her hair.
5. Yay verily all was done as the boy said. And there was great rejoicing in the house of the boy, for his brothers and sisters returned home before him.


  1. This is so sweet. And what JOY to find bubble wrap. I still love it just as much as I did as a kid and fight my kids for it too.

    Love your blog background, btw. Super!
