But I also wanted to bring my two bubble machines. I wanted to make sure they still worked, so I tested them this morning. Well, my multi-bubble machine (like Lawrence Welk was famous for) is busted. The pump isn't strong enough to get the bubbles up in the rings and fan, and I don't know why. I think the motor has problems because it's also a lot louder than I remember. I guess I could take it apart and try and fix it, but I don't have time.
The "large bubble maker" does work, which is good. If I had to choose between the two, that was the one I wanted to work. Instead of hundreds of small bubbles, it releases a few BIG ones each pass, and that's pretty cool to watch.
And really, how often do I get to use bubble machines in my life? Not enough, I tell you.
