I just wanted to blow bubbles in my milk.
The word’s bubbles for June 5 in the Photo a Day Challenge from Ashley. Rather than the Hubba Bubba or wand-and-soap-concoction variety, I wanted to step back and enact a defiant act from my childhood. (Why do parents get so pissed at this?)
At the risk of teaching my kids another act of defiance, that was plan A.
My creative girls came up with something better. Elise and Grace snapped shots of bubbles spewing not out of dad’s milk straw but into their fish tank. They captured beauty in a 10-gallon enclosure with all of $2.97 worth of tropical fish like it was Jacques Cousteau.
At some point in this challenge, I’ll have to step up.
I’ll need to take a photo that’s wholly me, by me, from me. I have some time. Hell, dinosaur will be here before I know it. Contrary to what my kids might say … that won’t be a selfie day. Dang kids.
