A Near Miss

I stopped to watch Giant Bubble Guy make giant bubbles on my way home from work tonight when I was very nearly maimed by a moving vehicle.

The Matchbox variety.

The furry-hooded child in the GIF above wanted to pop that giant bubble so damn badly that he blindly launched a die-cast metal truck straight into the air in the middle of one of London’s busiest walkways during rush hour.

And it worked!

Hat tip to you, kiddo.

Following the near-miss, Giant Bubble Guy paused making giant bubbles to share some advice with the throng of bubble-gripped children around him: “Remember kids, what goes up must come down. That includes toys.”
