When I walked back from the gym this morning (trying to get rid of some middle-age-nuisance that sticks to the worst places) I suddenly saw something very strange 30 meters ahead. I thought, well, the Martians are here, at last. I came closer and saw that the poodle was filled with bubbles. I guess someone threw soapwater on the sidewalk, must have been some oil in it, and when they rain hit the ground, bubbles appeared. I ran in, got the D, and out again - I needed the shower anyway.
