Happy Birthday Copal!Copal Dahling turns 17 todays. Thats Kilograms, not years, by the way. She's putting on a bit of weight. Might have something to do with the 6 pieces of cake we force fed her todays.
Anyhow, she got nice budday present from Vrinda, which brings me to more interesting topic than this staid, and oft repeated one, which will continue time and time again. Well, once a year, at any rates.
You see, the budday present in question was wrapped in this wonderful thing called
Bubble Wrap!Bubble wrap is one of mankinds greatest inventions. Besides being a great cushioning agent, it's also one of the most fun things on the planet, ranking right up there with Shiny Stuff, and elephant jokes. There is just this overwhelming desire to pop the damn things, and me and PC's enthusiasm for the same even spread to those who would like to believe themselves to be mature young adults, who do not indulge in childish activities.
(Oh, we also fought for Bubble Wrap, with usual loud grunting, but I won this time)
Back to the point. Popping the bubbles besides from being hypnotically fun, is also therapetic, and I had a wonderful day as a result, with big old smile on my face.
They should keep huge sheets of bubble wrap in classrooms, so whenever you've had a bit of a rough time, you can tear off a piece, and pop away.
