It’s raining.

There’s nothing to do.

Ruben is bored.

But things start looking up when his grandmother gives him and his little brother some gum.

Gum is fun. There’s just one problem with gum—it tends to make a mess!


Uh-oh. . . .

Ruben’s purposeful instruction sticks (“This is how the big pigs stretch a piece of gum, Julius”): Even after the boys’ de-gumming bath, it’s Julius who provides both the ultimate laugh and the biggest bubble by far.
