Bubbles!

Before I begin my story, I want to tell you about a new book release from Murees Dupe.

Author: Murees Dupé
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: 8 September 2015

Blurb
Claire is sassy, human, and an outcast of society―who only wants to know where she belongs.

Alex is arrogant, selfish, and an immortal warrior―who thinks he’s prepared for everything.

Claire knows the world of immortals is where she belongs. As her guide and guardian, Alex finds it hard to resist Claire’s subtle charm. Can the two overcome their differences and embrace their passion for each other, or will the possibility of true love be lost to both forever?

Good luck, Murees! Your book looks and sounds great!
 
Now for the story:
 
"Bubba," my husband said. "Please load and run the dishwasher."
 
In case you're new here, and you don't know Bubba, he's my eleven-year-old son. There's never a dull moment with him. This is another one of those not-so-dull moments.
 
The boy loaded the dish washer, poured liquid soap in the appropriate holder, and started it. Ten minutes later, my daughter happened to pass the machine. She noticed bubbles coming out through the cracks.  Figuring this was not good, she ran and got my husband.
 
He stopped the dishwasher and opened it. Now, I wasn't home to witness all of this, but he said there were so many bubbles in the dishwasher, you couldn't even see the dishes.   
 
"Bubba!" he called.
 
The boy came.
 
"What did you do?"
 
"I used that blue dishwashing soap," Bubba said, pointing to the Dawn liquid dish soap sitting on the counter.
 
Yeah. Wrong stuff. Needless to say, the boy spent a very long time scooping bubbles out of the dishwasher.  It took three additional runs to get them fully out.   Hopefully now he knows the difference between dish soap and dish washing detergent!

  1. how clean the dishes, the dishes clean. but, one question: was there screaming involved? or at least some yelling? I know yelling:
    I'm a frequent target.

    1. Nope. No screaming. No yelling. It was a peaceful cleanup.

  3. Hi, dear Sherry! I hope you guys had a great holiday weekend.

    Based on the blurb, The Amaranthine seems like an intriguing book. Does Alex J. Cavanaugh know that he is the subject of an unauthorized biography? : (Just kidding, Murees and Alex C.)

    Your latest Bubba story reminds me of an episode of I Love Lucy or The Three Stooges or Leave It To Beaver, I can't remember which. I'm sure all three of those series had a similar scene in them.

    Thanks for the smiles, dear friend Sherry!

    1. That's funny about Alex. I'm sure he'll get a laugh from your comment. Bubba's bubble incident is very much like something you'd see from The Three Stooges.

    2. I remember the bubbles from Leave It to Beaver. I think Wally and the Beave put too much detergent in the washing machine. June came home and wondered why the floor was so clean.

  4. Shady, funny!
    At least Bubba didn't use laundry detergent on your dishes.

    1. That would have probably been an even bigger mess!

  5. Oh no! What a disaster. I bet your husband wasn't happy about that. Thank you so much for sharing my release info, Sherry. You are wonderful.

    1. It would have been really cool if the back cover had the front of the dress. :)

      It is a gorgeous dress. I wouldn't mind trying it on!

  8. My daughter did the same thing when she was a young teenager. X was at home, and of course, ignored the mess. I arrived and blew a fuse, not really because she made the mistake but because neither one of them did anything about it. Thank you for featuring Murees's book. It's very good.

    Love,
    Janie

    1. I've done it once- being the absent-minded mom, that I am. I guess Bubba didn't learn from me. ;0)

  10. maybe he was hoping he'd not be called on again for this chore

  11. Something similar once happened to me. Well, it wasn't me. It was someone else in the household who decided to load something that had contained dishwashing soap (for hand washing) into the dishwasher. Oh, the bubbles...

    1. It's amazing how many bubbles can be generated from a little soap and a lot of water!

  12. Such things happen for everybody. Once I was using ring worm antifungal cream instead of toothpaste.

    1. Yes. You have to give him some credit for effort.

  14. Congratulations to Murees! And no worries, Bubba. I did that too... as an adult. :)

  15. Whoops! Easy mistake to make or at least Mr T would say that but then he had an awful habit of putting fabric conditioner in the draw meant for powder. My response? Buy two in one tablets that go into the washing machines drum

  16. Yay for Murees!

    My son did that. I wish he could plead ignorance, but I told him only an hour before that he couldn't put that soap in the dishwasher. *sigh* Kids, eh?

    1. Yep. They have excellent selective hearing. ;0)

  17. Hello,

    Bubba is very smart and he is learning fast. For a young boy of eleven to do dish washing is very commendable. His confidence to do the dish washing without asking for help is to be admired.

    Interesting book review.

    Best wishes

    1. Our kids have been taught to help with chores around the house. Whether they like it or not is another thing. ;0)

  18. I hope your husband took a bubble-filled picture. That's a lot of cleaning up to do. Congrats to Murees.

  19. You know what? I've done this before! We were out of dishwasher soap and I thought it would work just the same. Nobody ever taught me! Anyway, I used the bubbles to mop my kitchen floor.
