A 12 Second Story, Told In 5 Minutes
If you were a fly on the Capri Sun stained roof of our mini-van last night, this is what you would have heard on our way to basketball practice:
NukeBoy2: Hey Dad?
NB2: Did you know that I can blow bubbles with my hand?
ND: No, actually, I didn’t. How do you do that?
NB2: Well, this one time at school, my friend Jeremy was in the bathroom, and he was washing his hands, because you’re supposed to after you go to the bathroom, only he hadn’t gone to the bathroom, he was just washing his hands anyway, you know how people do that, sometimes?
NB2: And so, he’s washing his hands, and he squeezes his hand together, you know, like kinda how you make a fist? You know?
NB2: And so he does that, with his hand, I mean, and then, he puts his thumb and pointer finger together….
ND: We don’t point at people, right NB2?
NB2: Right, so he puts his thumb and booger finger together….
NB2: I mean, so he puts his thumb and that other finger that’s right next to it together, kinda like when you say “OK”, only you say it with your hand instead of your mouth?
NB2: Yeah, so he does that, and guess what?
NB2: He made a bubble like that.
NB2: Yeah, so I tried it, and guess what?
NB2: I can make a bubble like that too!
ND: Cool, buddy.
NB2: Yeah, so then later, we were eating lunch, you know, in the lunch room?….
ND: You mean the cafeteria?
NB2: Yeah, the lunch room, and guess what?
NB2: I blew another bubble!
ND: You didn’t rinse your hands after going to the bathroom?
NB2: No, I did; I mean, yes, I did rinse my hands, this was a different kind of bubble.
ND: Yeah, what kind of bubble?
NB2: A bubble from my mouth. ‘Cuz I was eating tater tots, and I had to burp, ‘cuz my belly was bubbling, and when I opened my mouth, I made this huge bubble!
NB2: Yeah, and so I blew, and guess what?
NB2: It popped.
NB2: And it smelled like tater tots! The end.
