Run, Bubble, Run!

You know, I already pointed out all the unfun there is with getting a good cardio workout at the gym. I like to get outside though. The problem with that is that until now, you’d have to contend with rain, cold, muggers, bees and who knows what other nuisance that tries to invade your personal bubble space.

Well, thanks to VE, you can now run in your very own Bubble!

That’s right, just hop into your bubble and start your run. Don’t worry about getting wet; you won’t! Don’t worry about getting cold; you won’t! Thanks to my patented device, you too can safely run anywhere in the privacy of your own bubble.

It only takes a couple of days to adapt your eyes to seeing through our patented bubble material. I suggest you use a safe flat parking lot to practice. The cemetery is another good place to start out; nobody there alive to complain if you bump into them while adjusting.

Yes, now you too can enjoy hours of weather free outside exercise. An added benefit is that you can actually run in your bare feet or in socks! That’s right, the cushion of your very own bubble is very non-jarring to your body but still provides a complete running workout.

Think of it as a large hamster ball just for you!

Can I be arrested for indecent exposure if I run around while dressed only in a bubble?

Is there an off road model for those of us who don't want to run in traffic?

How about a repair kit for the inevitable deflation?

Oh, yeah. How do you pee in one of then thangs?????

VE said...

nyd - Good questions. Yes, you could be arrested. The police are always trying to burst our bubble. Don't worry, it works well for off road. You don't have to repair it, the surface is clear rough hard plastic; think of that stuff they package things in lately; you can hardly even open it with scissors! Now peeing; either exit your balloon, hold it, or wear some Astronaut diapers!

Ok, now THAT looks like fun bubble boy!

wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

sprinkle4 said...

I want one of those. Not to exercies in, mind you, but to sleep in so the kids can't jump on me and wake me up in the mornings. Well, they could jump on me but they'd bounce right back off. Yeah....I want me one of those.

VE said...

leelee - Bubbles are ALWAYS fun!

sprinkle4 - That's a good idea. It seems that these bubbles could be used for a great many things!

iamnot said...

Does it come with air conditioning?

justacoolcat said...

I want one. Reminds me of that car comemrcial where they go out to a field and roll down hills ina giant ball.

VE said...

iamnot - On the upgraded model... What? You can't take a little Arizona heat in July? Sheez!

justacoolcat - There's an actual term for that hill rolling type (I've already forgotten what it is though)...stupid? No, I don't think that was it...

Jacki said...

I need one of those to stuff my 3 year old in when she is getting on my last nerve.

RED MOJO said...

If I run in there, and get all sweaty and gross, I'm gonna need some fresh air! Where's that come from?

Christy the Writer said...

Until now, I've been a hamster in a wheel. This will be a great change of pace...

VE said...

jacki - It'll work for that. Simply lock from the outside!

red mojo - Our patented heat/air system comes from key points around the bubble that automatically pull in that air that you need. Either that or just stop sweating, ok?

christy - Well then you'll feel right at home and at least with this one you can actually get somewhere!

Kurt said...

Please tell me you've seen the film Bubble Boy.

VE said...

kurt - On the grounds of incrimination, I take the 5th!

Serena Joy said...

Yeah, I can see myself as an overgrown hamster. I want one of those! I'd be protected from vicious dogs, marauding pigs, kids, spouses, salesmen, Jehovah's Witnesses, and anybody else I wanted to avoid. When can I get it?:D

Dale said...

Can you get burst insurance for it?

RED MOJO said...

I forgot to say congratulations on getting in the top 10 over at Mattress Police!

VE said...

sj - I can see there is a lucritive business in providing people bubbles

dale - Burst insurance... hmmm...no, I think I'd rather be entertained by the burst. I need a good laugh on YouTube

red mojo - Huh? Really? I'll go check it out...

VE said...

Crap...you're right Red Mojo, I'm a finalist! I even voted for myself...is that wrong? Oh well, it's nice to be a finalist; Diesel runs the toughest competition to win in town!
