I very clearly remember teaching myself how to blow bubbles. Many hopeful tries, many failed attempts. My mouth seemed too small, the bubble gum too slippery, and my teeth-tongue coordination just not quite mature enough. Evidently, perseverance is a wannabe bubble blower’s best friend.

Bubble Yum, Bazooka, Juicy Fruit, Bubble Tape – any and all types and flavors of bubble gum were good for an afternoon of bubble blowing fun. Bubble gum on your face, on your clothes, in your hair, and in your friend’s hair were all signs of fun times.
