Her booth had an assortment of toys and novelties. When I saw her, she was outside enthusiastically swaying two “bubble guns” back and forth and creating a fog of soapy circles that gently drifted downwind to her right.* How could anyone ignore someone with a great smile and a cloud of bubbles? How could I pass without asking to take her photograph?
*Bubble guns were among the novelties she sold in her booth at the Fair.
