Don't Blow the Record!
By Beth Beutler
1 "I'm going to set a record," Marcie said. "I'm going to blow the world's largest bubble gum bubble."
2 "How will you know it is the largest?" I asked.
3 "I looked it up on the Guinness Book of World Records website. The largest bubblegum bubble on record is 20 inches in diameter."
4 "Wow!" I said. "That's almost two rulers put side by side. Not bad for bubble gum!"
5 Marcie began to chew a large wad of gum. Her cheeks puffed out as she snapped and cracked the gum, making it soft and pliable. It was a good thing she was not at her house. Her mother hates it when she chews gum like that!
6 I chewed my gum also, but it was a smaller piece. I had no desire to break a record. I just enjoyed chewing bubble gum.
7 "Stand by with a yardstick," Marcie commanded.
8 I ran into the house and grabbed a yardstick from the garage. When I got back outside, Marcie had blown a rather large bubble. It did not look as if it were over 20 inches, though.
9 Pop! Marcie deflated the bubble, sucked the sticky gum back into her mouth, and began to chew again.
