A while back I grabbed a bubble gum. Removed the paper, popped it (the gum) into my mouth, poked a nice thimble-type bubble with my tongue and tried to blow it up. I had forgotten how! Do you hold the gum between the lip and gums or behind the gums with the tongue holding it in place? I can’t remember! Is it physical or is it mental? Do you suppose I will be able to continue my daily routine? Maybe it is true; maybe people do get too old! My darlings better contact their old gramma before its too late!

The bigger question is,“Does your chewing gum lose its flavor on the bedpost overnight?”
I believe that question was thoroughly researched some years back, but I don’t remember having come up with a decisive answer. 😀
I once could blow a bubble in a bubble—and just watch out cherry stems 🙂
I have seen a few double bubble people. I’m just left with – how! “Cherry stem” to new to my vocabulary. Is that the rolling tongue thing?
Tying a cherry stem into a knot my mouth— and no I can’t roll or flip my tongue — but, I can balance a spoon on my nose— what these talents have gotten me thus far in life, eludes me 🤪
Gives you replies to my intensely intelligent and worthy posts. Besides it give me status with my grandchildren who want to know why I can’t touch my nose with my tongue. I can show them your picture and tell what YOU can do. 😀 They have just discovered cherry pits not we can go into cherry stems.
Never blew one.
Need not worry. Life goes on even if one misses some of the finer points experienced by others. 😀
There was bubble gum in the candy dish at church today. I took one, unwrapped it, put it in my mouth, and chewed it on the drive home. I can’t remember the last time I had bubble gum in my mouth. Years, I’d say.
But here’s the scary part: I didn’t try to blow a bubble. The thought never even occurred to me. You may have forgotten how to blow a bubble, but my forgetter is worse than yours. I forgot that’s what bubble gum is for. Yikes!
That made me laugh out loud. You make me feel so young. My ability to associate bubble gum with bubbles still works! And, guess what – church is where I got my bubble gum. In a little over sixty days we can raid the kids Halloween treats and try making bubbles again. Now if we can only find new gum, and not that that was given out last year and saved to re-give this year. 😀
Haha, now you made me laugh out loud. 😀
I think the very last time I ever made a bubble, it was too big and popped all over my face –
to quoth the Raven… Nevermore! 🙂
I’d rather unwrap a dark chocolate Hershey Kiss!
I bet so. The dare devils could do that. I have had to do wipe ups on little faces that blew too long. You have to use the gum to remove the gum. At least it was easier that way. 😀
