Dearest Bubbleologists,

As a sheepy I of course luff bubbles. Bubbles are my all time favourite round orby circular things that soapy stuff creates and that I make in the bath with my bum...


Bubbles are also where I live at night....thusly:





Me Living In Bubbles Thusly

Nice eh ? More bubbles being delivered next Tuesday



Did ewe know that when ewe crack your fingers, ankles and toes etc that the noise is made because it's little bubbles of gas exploding !!..nice eh ?

A few questions about these bubbles if I may !

How big are these bubbles in my body ?
How are these bubble created ?
What happens to them should they not pop ?
What happens to the gas when they do pop ?..and what is the gas anyway ?



I really need to know the answers because I am running the sports relief mile in March and I am sure that a roving reporter will ask me about the bubbles as I run !

So, please help me understand the nature of these bubbles.

Thanking ewe

hugs & shmishes



mwah mwah mwah
