Dear Blog Readers,
We have become the kind of blogger we never wanted to be — the kind who has a "read our blog" button on our website but the newest post is months old. We blame Facebook for this — it's so much easier to write something there and we seem to have more followers there than we did here on the blog. Still, we can't quite bring ourselves to give it up altogether yet — so instead, we're posting this little note to explain our lack of current entries. Please do check out our facebook page, we think it's fun, if not quite as long form.
sincerely, the Joie de Blogger.

Bubble, Bubble

This morning I was leaning down to turn on some lights and I found a bubble clinging to the wall. It was fun to find an unexpected bubble. We sell these no-pop bubbles — they have just a little bit of plastic in them like the blaseball balloon "bubbles" of old you blew threw a straw — and they don't pop right away. We often demonstrate them to customers who haven't seen them . . . after they've been in the air for maybe 30 seconds, you can catch them on a fingertip. I knew the last time we had blown some was last Saturday ( the day a woman walked out of the store with a few unpopped bubbles in her hair) so the bubble I found this morning had been there for three days. Not a bad life span for a bubble!
