A Near Miss

I stopped to watch Giant Bubble Guy make giant bubbles on my way home from the office tonight when I was very nearly maimed by a moving vehicle—of 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! Bubble popped!

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.”
