My kids have been trying to entertain themselves since the cold weather is keeping them out of school. Today they came up with an ingenious activity: Filling the kitchen sink with water, dumping an entire container of liquid hand soap in, and creating more bubbles than you've ever seen in one sink.
"And you're going to do what with those bubbles?" I asked when I saw the mess.
"Make bubble beards!" my nine-year-old son said. He dipped his hand in the suds and smeared bubbles all over his chin. He looked a little like Santa Claus.
"Nice," I said, eyeing the spectacle.
My twelve-year-old daughter came over and did the same thing, except she added a mustache. Then my boy chased her around the house. Bubbles flew off their faces and landed on the floor.
Schultz, our hundred-pound German Shepherd was curious about those bubbles which had landed on the floor. So he stuck he nose in them and sniffed. And guess what happened? He got a bubble beard, too!
So what do you think, ladies and gentlemen? Should I go smear some bubbles on my face and join in the fun?
