Did you know that bubble wrap just turned 50?
Yes, I am a known bubble-wrap hoarder and addict. As a child, it was not uncommon for a new toy to be tossed aside until the "poppy-paper" it had been packed in was satisfactorily flattened, one at a time (I'm sorry but I've never approved off mass-popping by smashing or stepping on the stuff). To this day, certain close relatives will save it and give it to me as a special treat on holidays, to which I react with uncontrollable excitement and glee. Yeah, I know.
So I hope you will take a moment from your busy day, from the stress and worry of real life, to celebrate this monumental occasion with me. Allow yourself to destroy a sheet. No really, a whole sheet. Next time, you can pack stuff in some of that other paper or peanuts I'm sure you'll find in the spare room or basment. It's alright to waste just one to celebratory popping. It's its birthday. And you know it will feel good.
Or, if you don't have a piece handy, use this one.
