A Bit of the Bubbly

My husband has long advocated for the use of a bubble suit, for my safety, me wearing a bubble suit. I’ve fallen down stairs, rolled an office chair over my own toes, and I can injure my back by sneezing. On a regular daily basis, my life comes with sound effects every time I bump, kick, knock my elbows, etc. When he’s referred to this solution over the years, I’ve always thought of John Travolta as the Bubble Boy. He had a bubble room and could go outside in a bubble. Above, we see him enjoying a day at the beach with bubble head doing its job.

Lucky me, there is quite a variety from which to choose these days. Take the model above. We have color options! Also, I wouldn’t have to worry about what I wear underneath. The rating is great with the feedback of 476 people. Get that, they’ve sold at least 476 of these!

Here’s a sporty version in which one can actually fall, twist, bounce, and careen, although I visualize my use of it looking more like the picture above. And I certainly can’t have my ankles sticking out. (See previous posts “Free Fall” through to this one in the saga of “broken bones” and “don’t walk on it for two weeks before seeking help.” Everyone’s a doctor.)

Here we go. This is more akin to what my husband has described, wrapping me in air bubble shipping wrap. I don’t know about this one now that I see it. This picture makes me feel like I should be doing karate or at least some sort of physicial activity. It really doesn’t require much movement on my part to culminate in an injury. Maybe this is too advanced for me.

It would be great to have a pair of bubble suits for my friends and I while visiting or taking a walk. Some day in the future when I am again allowed to bear weight on my left lower leg/ankle/foot, perhaps I’ll invest in these After many x-rays and disbelief at me waiting so damn long to seek medical attention, it seems surgery will be in my near future. Hey, I think the one below is perfect! Bubbles within bubbles. I wonder if the orthopedic surgeon could prescribe this afterwards. Hmmmm. The saga continues…
