so, did you hear?
they sprayed down the iconic seattle bubble gum wall this week.
not sure why. just know they did. and while we were having our girls weekend away last weekend, i snuck away and took a photo in front of a section of the wall. blurry. why? because we went to bed at 4am the night before. long story. no asking. that’s why the makeup and hair and eyes and smile are somehow faded. i was tired. very tired. but not tired enough to snap this photo. yay me.
bubble gum was something special when i was a kid. my dad was a dentist. he considered sugar free trident gum to be a treat. it wasn’t. just sayin. we were friends with the wrigley family…. yes, wrigley chewing gum. and they gave us tons of it when we visited. as much as we could hide from our parents when it was time to leave. good memories. steve, if you are reading this… thank you. i loved your parents and had a lot of fun there as a kid.
in honor of bubble gum, here are a few ways i can see myself enjoying it as an adult (as i chew my trident gum, which i like now).
voodoo doughnuts in Portland.
i always add one of these to our dozen just because they are so cute.
how cute is this? i want one for my next birthday. in march. hint hint, kids.
in the meantime, i might just buy one of these for our home. love it. of course i will fill it with pink bubble gum balls. or turquoise. or green. maybe i’ll buy 3.
and today. oh how i wish today was sunny and i could go get some vanilla ice cream (or chocolate vanilla swirl) and make these. do the calories count if it is a craft project? i didn’t think so.
remember, you are never too old for bubble gum.
