Soapy’s name isn’t really Soapy – that’s just what people call her because more than anything else in the world, she loves blowing soap bubbles. Soapy got her very first bubble-blower when Mom came home from her job abroad for a few days. Dad had already left home by then – Soapy and her little brother are cared for by their grandmother. Whenever she blows bubbles, Soapy forgets that Mom and Dad no longer live together, that Mom is always sad and far away, and that no one has the time to notice her problems anymore. Blowing bubbles is great, because the soap bubbles you blow only take from the real world what you like and what gives you joy.
