It takes a while to get going. I mean I suppose it has to warm up for a while before it produces those floaty bubble things (or whatever they’re called). But for me, the wait is always worth it. Listening to relaxing music and staring at a lava lamp may be one of my favorite new hobbies. I am so easily pleased.
I believe lava lamps were a thing back in the 70s, but I don’t really remember ever seeing any when I was little. I recall my grandmother had a light beside her bed that looked like a cluster of grapes, but I have no memories of lava lamps.
Fast forward to 2006 or 2007 when I was in the mall and passed by Spencer’s Gifts. Lo and behold, they had a lava lamp on clearance for $10. So obviously, I had to buy it (even though I still think Spencer’s is weird and a bit gross). And fast forward to a few nights ago where I enjoyed the fruits of my well-spent $10. Job well done, I say.
