Down the Shops

Posted by Dirck on 16 December, 2010

This lunch break, I am off doing something about the current lack of cooking facilities in the house, so I am just dashing off this quick and slightly rhetorical note:

Soap bubbles are, traditionally, the examplar of the notion of “ephemeral”.  How, then, do I find several of them clinging to the walls this morning, like a tribe of glass snails?  Bubbles which were blown last night as a pre-bedtime indulgence for my son!

Perhaps entropy is taking the winter off?  Perhaps it’s all tired out from molesting the various appliances and fittings in the house?

It’s a slightly creepy phenomenon.  However, as it’s not threatening, it’s welcome in my house.
