    I wonder how you learn to become a face painter. Buy some face paint and find a bunch of child volunteers to let you practice? I have always wanted to be a face painter.

    Maybe I’ll find some face paint and paint my grandchildren’s faces first. Maybe I’ll practice on Larry first.

    Look at the lady with the bubbles. Look how the bubbles are in almost the exact configuration that a wheelchair would have.

    Before I looked at that picture, I was looking at the one above and saw that one in my periferal vision, and perceived it as a lady in a wheelchair. Then I had to flip my mind when I saw it was bubbles. Big bubbles for the big back wheel and a small bubble for the front wheel.

    My next thought was someone should invent wheelchairs with bubble wheels so people could float and bounce lightly. That would be so cool.

    Maybe then they could invent bubble wheels for mobility scooters.

    And maybe for the bottoms of shoes.

    The mobility possibilities of bubbles are endless.

    Floating wheelchairs! What a good idea! That would sure take care of a lot of problems…like sidewalks that suddenly end in grass, or curbs that aren’t cut, or steps with no ramps…and a dozen other things. Snow comes to mind also.

    Somebody can do this.
