My World Record Attempt
Of all my talents and skills, it seems I may go for a world record in the most unlikely of categories, bubble gum blowing. If the 10,000 times rule applies, I am there X2 or 20 or something. If the number of crowns in my mouth is a testament of my early years of practice chewing bubble gum, I am there on that as well.
As a youngster my cousin and I took handfuls of bazooka bubble gum from my grandparents corner store into the house and held a contest. Who could fit the most pieces in their mouth. I won. At 28 pieces I was sort of chewing, drooling and feeling sick to my stomach from the sugar. But I was not able to form any type of bubble. I do believe that was the beginning of my bubble gum blowing career.
Some people say it's the amount of gum that makes the bubble bigger. Considering I may be an expert at this,
I'm going to assert that's not true.
Twenty-eight pieces is not possible unless you
have a mouth of a rhinoceros.
Time passes. But my bubble gum memories carry on. Entertaining
my infant son with huge bubbles in the 80s. Teasing my crazed Border Collie in the 90s. And just 3 years ago entertaining my grand daughter with monster bubbles. We have a new grand baby now, soon she'll enjoy my entertainment as well.
Recently, I have been trying to enlargen (don't think that's a word) my bubbles to at least the size of my torso. My new method is working and I am progressing nicely. Next I think I'll try to get the bubbles bigger than me, or my car, or something.
