BUBBLIC (buh’ blik) adj. Addicted to the systematic popping of the bubbles in packing material.
What a fun thing it is to be bubblic! Being bubblic means when you get a package in the mail, you are excited, not for the item you received, but what it was wrapped in. Bubble wrap! Sometimes the plastic bubbles are small, and sometimes they are huge, but they pretty much have the same effect. Little pockets of air that just have to be released. Some bubblic people pop the wrap one bubble at a time, as it might be some kind of therapy. Others like to twist it around on itself and make the room sound like a colourful Hong Kong street on Chinese New Year. Some might do the multi-bubble burst by dancing on the wrap laid flat on the floor. No matter how it is done, soon it will be over, but never despair, because there will always be new packages in the mail. If said bubblic person is not satisfied with the current lack of packing material, he or she can take care of their addiction with $5 and a trip to the office supply section of the local discount department store or shipping centre. Sometimes bubble wrap can even be found at the post office for free. Would not want to take a chance on that, though. Postal workers are not there to take care of bubblic addictions, so take care. No matter how you take your bubble wrap, bubblic person, enjoy one of the most fun, simple, harmless, and legal addictions ever.
