I’m Just An Old, Little Girl Who Had Some Fun!…

By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee

Today, I decided to take a bubble bath… with lots of bubbles! Millions of bubbles!

The tub was sparkling white; underneath the water flowing out of the faucet was a mound of bubble bath powder….. purple bubble bath powder.

Bubbles were beginning to form… I wanted more bubbles! I wanted to hide in mounds of bubbles, peep out over the top of them, blow them with my breath!

I didn’t have enough bubbles! I needed more! I didn’t have anymore bubble bath powder…. my eyes spotted something sitting on the tub. Oh yes! I needed that!

I reached for the big bottle of Caress Body Wash… it was half full. I was sure I would get a lot of bubbles from that!

I began squeezing all the thick,pink, nice-smelling body wash under the very warm water… the bubbles began coming… millions of them!

Bubbles! Bubbles! Bubbles! Oh, so many wonderful bubbles! What a wonderful, delicious scent in the air!

I jumped into the tub, well… not really jumped (remember, I’m ‘old’ :)))!!! I was just thinking… am I too old to enjoy my bubbles? Just because I’m ‘older’… doesn’t mean my life is over…. I’m just a ‘old, little girl’!

I laid in the tub with the bubbles hiding me… if one looked into my bathroom… all they would have seen is a white tub of bubbles.

As the bubbles foamed all around me, I blew to my heart’s content… millions of bubbles, trying to make a… bubble mountain! That may have looked strange if someone was looking in… bubbles forming a big, fluffy mountain as they grew higher, and higher. Sometimes, it would look like ‘puffs’ of white clouds as they flew by in the air!

When it came time to come back to reality… I realized I had a lot of bubbles to wash out of the tub. Not only that, I was very soapy! So, I turned the shower on… took a wonderful, refreshing shower. When I finished, I turned the warm water to cold water…. let the shower finish washing the bubbles down the drain.

All the while as I dressed… I kept thinking ‘this old, little girl had fun’!!!

  1. Hi hun! 🙂

    Just caught your comment! 🙂

    There’s not really much to tell!

    Candles were being sold for three times the price, profiteering was a BIG problem, while the coal mining unions held the country to ransom so there were rolling blackouts and the winter cold was a bit of a problem.

    I got battered for playing with a candle, but that was par for the course.

    We all went to bed dressed in pyjamas, socks and dressing gowns to keep warm.

    It was an ‘interesting’ period under a Labour Government while the whole country was held to ransom… 😦

    Love and hugs!


    • I was just telling Skip why you went through blackouts, and about the candles. I know that was a bad time…. it would be scary because people can be mean doing things to others… one would have to protect themselves. I know they would here.

  2. what a wonderful way to bathe it has been so long since I had a true bath shower is all I can handle, with my knee I can’t step over the tub and as fat as I am I can’t get out with out a crane LOL not really but some days I feel that way. I think it is wonderful you got to play for a while and have some fun. good for you!!

  3. i love that you still have that young spirit! the last time i did something like this (just a few months ago) i forgot and turned the jets on!! well you can imagine what happened but i don’t regret it, my husband had to come and help the over flowing suds so we had a good time together:)

    • :))))))))))))) I know what happened… I did that years ago… and the whole room became a ‘bubble room’…. bubbles higher than me! :))))))))))) I know that was quite an experience! :)))
