Hubba Bubba Bubblegum Alley!!!

It seems like I'm traveling all the time these days. Probably because I am traveling all the time these days.


Recently I boarded the train to San Luis Obipso, CA.

I got there a day ahead of the SCBWI workshop I was teaching, so I was able to do a little exploring . . .

It was so cool to see the retro theater and all the coffee bars. In WARP SPEED, Marley's family runs the old Rialto Theater and I did lots of research.

However, the San Luis Obispo highlight for me and my Peep was this . . .

It's CHEWED GUM!!!!! Yes, I stumbled across the famed Bubblegum Alley . . .

We were careful not to slip and fall, or else we'd be stuck there forever.

In STANFORD WONG FLUNKS BIG-TIME, Stanford has a gum encounter at the library . . .


So what do you think? Beautiful or gross? Or, maybe, both?

And for those of you who love gum and can't get enough, Peepy and I videoed Bubblegum Alley . . .

Next blog, what went on inside here . . .
