tar bubbles and flip flops

windbreakers and banana seats

fisher price phone booth, merry go round, and silo

big bird and oscar the grouch

cambric of denim and old timey patches

that magic envelope, holding miss scarlet in the library with the wrench

land on jail, millionaire!

park place and hotels and scottie dogs

operation!

swimming holes, dropped right off, no adults!

dots and wax lips and soda bottles and bottle caps and tootsie rolls and chocolate babies and butterscotches and mrs weisman, who was so beautiful in that picture in the back of the store

days of the week panties

school clothes and that magical magical trapper keeper

bobby bear and brutus and jeffrey and roman

plagiarized plays and nobody listened and a tragic weeping snotbubble

tiny kitchenette flowered formica

barbies and colorforms 

spirograph and etch a sketch

grandpa with his bristly white hair, and quarters, and double bubble bubblegum

grandma stern and peeling beans

mommy in a slinky purple maxi dress and playboy clubs

everything painted and stained, both

jesus behind curved glass

blue skies and hot dark nights 

archie bunker and happy days

thanks, jw and jm!

and arthur - i have avoided mr bubbles ever since!! 

i had a friend who was a lobbyist, and when i found out some of the companies he had applied to, i was appalled.

thanks, james!  someone mentioned tar bubbles, and it got me thinking. i think popping the half inch tar bubble, and the incredibly rare 3/4 inch tar bubble, was possibly the greatest joy of my elementary school years.
