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.
