Bubbles

"Which of these bottles can give the biggest of bubbles?" asks six year old Nathan to the shopkeeper who also is his father.

"Why do you want big bubbles?" the father curiously asks his son who is eyeing the bottles stacked up on the old shelf.

"Bigger bubbles look beautiful and are brighter than all the other ones" quips Nathan.

"The size of the bubble doesn't matter my son. What matters is how long the bubble lasts and spreads happiness" says the father and hands over a tiny bottle from the second shelf to his son who screams in glee.
